How's that hairline doing today? Looked thick back then. Oh, I've been confusing 53' with '53 all this time. LOL. Hope you're doing well!

I've just about got all of my old pile of nostalgic mementos, documents, etc. down to one full bin, after tossing out a bunch of junk trophies and ribbons and things. I did keep my 8th grade head-stand competition 1st place trophy and driver's ed state trophy, because they're so odd and I think funny to have. They're in the bin, so it's more of a me-joke anyway. Anyway, I usually go through all of the old junk a few times per year, spending no more than a few seconds on each item, but always linger on the yearbooks for longer. I don't think my young self would recognize me now as the same person, to be honest. One of my favorite mementos is my pop pop's old pipe (he died in the mid 2000's). It still smells of half-and-half tobacco. Brings back memories. Sorry if I got a bit off-topic!

My hair grows thick and wavy and curly like as of late. There is a bit of thinning on top though but not as bad as real fathers is. Brothers hair isnt thinning either

I think you mean 21 years... unless you meant Grade 11... Class of '98 myself... back then I had a full head of hair, and was at LEAST 100 Lbs lighter... now my hair line is best described as "the Captain", IE: Patrick Stuart in the late 80's..

You look like the typical local TV news station sports reporter. Up next on ABC 7 is Sports with Adam Bennett. Many reporters use a stage name.

8th grade!? You look like you're 30. LOL. Hope you haven't aged much since then. Tats on your arms?

[Linked Image] No tats, I look like a pretty average dude in his mid 20s now.

Military veteran? I think of grey haired gentleman walking with canes. Especially with that username. Not anyone under 40. How did you do that?
