I was going through some old pics recently - and mused on the changes brought on by 40 years of living...

40 years on...

That was me - how was it for you? Any visual admissions to make?

I wasn't very photogenic forty years ago, and have gone downhill since.

Let's see, forty years ago... I knew how to run the world, could solve all its problems and once I mastered The Bert Weedon Play in a Day book, might use my "axe" as a tool to eradicate dodgy governments and use my charisma to change the world.

Then my balls dropped.

Interesting, then I found being guitarist had other advantages. Sod the world, just allow it to move for me on a Saturday night..

Never been the same since, actually.

Sorry, enough ruddy pics of me around without promoting the sods...

If I had a dog that looked like me I'd shave its arse and teach it to walk backwards.

I was in a bar a few weeks back with an old friend. I saw another two guys and noticed how old and decrepit they both looked. I said to my friend, "That's us in twenty years." My friend replied, "You're looking at a mirror, dipshit!"

Some days it just don't pay to get outta bed.

Some 50-odd years ago (and some years were kind of odd). Bob (Deckman) Nelson and me, sort of "then and now."

Click HERE, check out Bob's (Deckman) CD, then brace yourself and scroll down to the concert poster. Bob and me in 2007, getting ready for our concert on October 14th, and the two of us singing at "The Place Next Door" in 1959.

This link shows at top my first wedding, 30 March 1959; further down late pix of late wife Valerie & me, in our 70s. Even further down, another wedding pic.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-1091443/Why-I-helped-Parkinsons-disease-suffering-wife-plan-suicide--left-die.html 

I now look even older than that first pic, with white beard, as can be found on my youtube channel

http://www.youtube.com/user/mgmyer

This just for the images, topic of this thread. No need to read the report or listen to the vids! Just that I'm not IT-litereate enough to know how to post the pix without rest of the stuff! Sorry...

40 years ago I had all my hair and teeth, didn't wear glasses or a hearing aid, wasn't on any medication and had a waist measurement less than my inside leg. I won't post photos in case it scares the horses.
Oh, and I couldn't sing or play an instrument (some things don't change!).

What I miss is my hair. It was so long I could truthfully sit on it, and very thick, and it had never ever been cut since I was born. But I began to look a bit eccentric, fashions changed, and I finally had it cut. But forty years ago, if I undid my hair, you'd have seen my face and the bottoms of my legs, the hair covered the rest of me like a huge cloak! Sigh...

My style of dress was questionable though, I remember I had a pair of black shiny shoes with cherries on them, I thought I looked the cat's whiskers in them in reality it looked something that Minnie Mouse would have worn!

Patsy, they sound lovely, very funky! I had a pair of 'wet-look' boots. Do you remember them? When you bought a pair, they came in a long box with a warning paper saying they were not in the least waterproof!

There won't be any current pics of me because I really really hate the way I look these days......it's been all downhill since 25, you know......I am resigned to the fact that no longer am I the sweet young thing I once was, but doesn't mean I have to like what I am now.

Me in 1985
My daughter thinks my 80s-style shorts are a bit on the obscene side. I don't think I had a pair of shorts until about 6 years ago that the pockets didn't hang out of the leg opening. Anyway, this was me age 35 in the Canyonlands Utah for a vision quest.

Eliza yes I remember 'wet look' boots, we called them liquorice boots and you are right not waterproof or warm at all. It's the styles from the 70s that gets the laughter from my sons with the wide lapels and wide trousers. My mother always said that it looked like I was going to take off.

Thank you frEDA.

Those photos are of me taken in 1968 when I was 17, and now ... layered on a jpg I have of some eastern European document of some sort ... a visa maybe, or maybe a driver's licence. The intention was purely in jest. While composing it I had the startling realization that the title was more relevant to the current so called western free world than when I was 18 in the time of Dick Nixon and the Soviet Bloc.

Luckily I haven't any photos, but I confess to buying, in the seventies, full-length floral nightdresses from Littlewoods stores, and teaming them with a black 'maxi' crocheted waistcoat. I plaited my extremely long hair with scarves and ribbons woven in, and put a hippie band round my forehead a bit like a native American, with a flower stuck in it. What a sight! But I fondly imagined I was trendy and attractive. We all used a perfume called Aqua Manda, a bit musky. As I had very bandy legs, the full-length fashions suited me. Smock-tops were 'in', (and they're 'in' just now, very good for hiding fat bottoms!)

Eliza you had the look I was trying to achieve wow! Yes I used Aqua Manda too. There was a certain oil that was used too (Patchoulli?) it had a kind of lemony smell. My hippier friends were burning joss sticks but I was forbidden because my mum thought that it would make the neighbours think that I smoked cannabis! You must remember Biba boutiques. I thought at the time that the make-up was amazing and found this strange lilac blusher in a pot in reality it must have looked hideous.

Whether you wanted be to or not.

I played at Biba's restaurant in London occasionally - with a band called Susan Brown and her band of Renown.

But I never wore white lipstick and black eyeshadow.

Errr...I still burn Joss sticks and sometimes wear Patchouli. Back in the day I had white lipstick, white gogo boots, black wet look boots (AND a wet look coat). I remember back in 1968 or so the makeup we all thought was the greatest was Yardley.

White lipstick? Anyone remember white lipstick -- and ironing your hair? This would be circa 1965, rather more than 40 years ago ... Very mod, Ottawa Valley style.

I'm still racking my brains for any snapshots of me that might have survived my dad's Grand Purge of 1982. There aren't many, which is probably a good thing.

You're quite right Charmion, I think white lipstick was a Twiggy thing, which would place it in the sixties! I used to smother myself in Yardley's Black Rose talcum powder. And I loved my 'sling-back shoes', I had a pair of white ones. In winter we all wore incredibly long knitted scarves, wound round and round and trailing on the floor, and matching bobble hats.
