Maybe this will help

"Nothing is yet in its true form" C.S. Lewis

or this

"I'm a multidimensional person and that's the freedom of fashion: that you're able to reinvent yourself through how you dress and how you cut your hair or whatever." Emma Watson

Reinventing or restoring?
Think of yourself as a classic car.
After a certain age and mileage, you flaunt your dated design and aim for comfort and reliability.
Make the whippersnappers think "good old days."

You just enJOY yourself. A regained sense o' humor is a precious thing!

We'll be here.

Rodger, maybe a relocation to a nice southern state and blog about family and puppies. Since my beloved Florida has gone over the edge, I'm seriously considering a move to escape the craziness.

My Dad used to call that 'goofing off'.

As a teenager, I was freakin bee-yootifull. Flat belly, limber back, head of hair, great golf swing, 20-20 vision, able to leap small obstacles at a single bound.

In my mid-20s, I re-engineered myself; became a husband, father, heavy drinker, chain smoker, and serious threat to the nation's cholesterol supply.

As a 40-something, I began to notice stuff beginning to fall -- teeth, hair, pecs, butt -- so I gave up tobacco, cut way back on spirits, and told the Navy I'd had enuf.

Just before hitting 60, my main circ pump developed some sludged-up pipes, so I completely revamped my diet: no pork, no sausage, no eggs, no salt, nuthin fried, no fun.

At setenta y cinco, I finally admitted to myself that I'm not immortal and am headed into the final lap. To quote a well-known voice, "At this point, what DIFFerence does it make!"

So I continue to throw my daily sh-- against the wall, no longer caring if any of it sticks or not. If people don't like it, they know where the "delete" key is.

Long ago I wrote a poem which ended with this quatrain:

It's like my Granddad told me, "Son,
When you have seen your whole life's run
And never pissed off anyone,
You haven't got much said or done."
