Sorry, Terrye, I was 100% sympathetic until the photo at the end. THAT is supposed to be a visible age difference? Try one of you with a solid gray beard, totally bald top head, and thick thatch of gray above the ears, compared to someone with “salt & pepper” hair, heavy emphasis on the pepper. (The first one is me, the second is Deb. Just heading off any innocent-sounding questions.) And worst? I’m almost four years younger. She qualifies for senior rates, but when we buy tickets, who gets the discount? Her hubs. Every. Time.

Of course, no one has ever mistaken me for her dad. So there’s that.

Okay, I’m better now.

Condolences, Terrye!
