I came across some old photos. This was me in 1962. I was 15 and, apparently, had a bit of an Elvis vibe going on, which is why I am bothering to post this photo. Perhaps I am just seeing that because we watched the Elvis movie over Christmas.
Time flies, and sixteen or so years later, I had a daughter to whom I read books. She had ear problems (both our girls did) and you can see white in her ear, presumably from a cotton ball. The photo stood out to me because I like the shape of my beard. If I could shape it like that way today, I would, but I am currently letting it grow into a fuller beard that I don't have to shape at all because I seem to have lost whatever eye and dexterity that I once possessed. Which wasn't much.
Curiously, the book I was reading was Robin Hood, which for a long time was the movie that JJ would pick to watch on his sleepovers.
