|This picture was taken as My Bride and I celebrated our twenty-fifth|
Wedding Anniversary in October 1997. I did not want to appear as
a tired mature male so I had my hair permed for this event.
This backstory of this Blog Post is that during our recent Holiday Trip to visit Family, Friends and Former Shipmates the life of Alan became an interesting topic. Of course this was most likely spurred on by the comments of my Youngest Son who is always ready to relate an interesting story about his Dad. Thus this post. Some did not believe that I could still wear the same swim attire now that I did in 1971. The pictures here prove that I can. Additionally, some did not believe that I would have ever permed my hair. The picture here proves that I did.
Even if I say so myself, I am well blessed with good health and the ability to appreciate humor and even laugh at myself as stories are retold about my past. Have a Great Day!!!
