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...

Nice one, Micca, Man in Action, jauntily down the street. Hey! If you have a copy of that one of me in what you thought was a trench coat, would you send it to me or post it, please? I canna find a copy.

I find, fellahs, I much prefer the more mature look you all seem to have now...friendlier, more natural and handsome, all a'youse!:-)

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!).

Will... "I wish" I was in a tenth of the shape I was in then. 4 or 5 hours on the squash court (yes, hours - never coming off -, with multiple opponents) was a walk in the park. Now, a walk in the park is a task. Wanna but some squash rackets? Real ones. Wood. Not those pansy graphite, aluminum, whatever the hell the robots make them out of now.

Gee, I sound a lot older than I am. >;-)
