WHATCHU TALKIN BOUT WILLIS?

I grew up when Diff'rent Strokes was a popular television show. That's no big deal unless your last name is Willis. To this day I still hear those famous words popularized by Arnold: "Whatchu talkin bout Willis?" Usually they are uttered by someone looking at me as though I may have never heard it before. Yeah, right! Well this blog is what I (Willis) am talkin bout...my thoughts, observations & opinions. Enjoy...

WOW! I'm Getting Old Fast!

I decided to go to the local barber shop today. I go there every so often. My old barber retired a while back, so I'm what might be described as an irregular customer. I do the Supercuts type places too, but I do like the old school feel of the traditional barber shop and today that's what I wanted. So I'm sitting there as the barber is doing his thing and I look down and notice some gray hair - well actually I see a lot of gray hair! Uh-Oh! I sit trying to picture myself with my dad's hair! Then the ultimate reality check moment occurs: I feel the clippers on my ears! Yes, the barber was knocking off ear hair!!! Now, I have seen a hair here and there on my ears before, but it has never risen to a level requiring the heavy equipment! WOW! I'm getting old fast!

I grew out the Grizzly Adams beard over the winter... and I felt like Tim Allen in "The Santa Claus."

And I've got a decade on you age wise...

Getting old is only in our mind.
Age never prevented people from doing things:
