Re: calendar/ A Gene in the Buff?

Jim dear - I was kidding (mostly) and ask Jesse, I don't dye, perm, curl or even blow dry my locks.  Slat 'n' pepper's good enough for me.  I didn't even wear make up until I was 42, and that was Jesse's influence as well.  I have no problem w/ the mature animal as you put it.  And I pay NO attention to Madison Ave, fads, fashions or any of it.  I have jeans and loafers older than some of my coworkers.  I'd still be wearing my John Lennon glasses if I hadn't had to go to bifocals!  I've never bought an issue of Cosmo, Glamour or any of that type nonsense.  I'll take real any day of the week - believe it.
