Until Someone Loses an Eye

As the old saying goes, “It’s all fun and games until someone loses an eye.” Well, I suppose we were having a little fun one Sunday afternoon following morning worship service… and it seems we lost an eye on similarity. I think the similarity begins and ends with the bow tie. Yes, some medications and supplements helped me to put on too much weight when I was losing weight far too quickly last year. Couple that with the fact that I’m about a month overdue on my haircut, and it makes my wife and I giddy enough to pose like some of the photos and prints hanging on my office wall.

Not long ago, someone in Talladega asked me, “Have you always had a beard?”

I answered, “No. I grew it right after I got out of the Navy because I have a dimple in my chin and I was getting tired of people confusing me with Tom Hanks.”

He said, “But you don’t look anything like Tom Hanks.”

“I know. The beard works pretty good, doesn’t it?”
