Nice! You look about 10 years younger and about 10 lbs lighter.

Reminds me of when I went snowboarding all day and ended up with a goggle tan (including the strap going around the back of my chrome-bald dome.)

I dig the new look for ya. Very sharp.

Lookin' good, strange time of year to defur though, my grandfather (moms side), shaved once a year, usually around the beginning of June, so by winter he had a good layer of fur again, then again he farmed in the summer, and logged in the winter. I've been seriously thinking of letting mine go for the winter, well, trim it occasionally to keep it cleaned up, but working in a warehouse I think that a layer of fur could come in handy. Heck I might look like I could join ZZ Top by spring though, mine grows fairly fast.

I was tired of the Mountain Man look. I went for a more Continental look (especially with my Bianchi cap and all )

Lookin' good!...Did you get the TDC bike socks too? I did and a TDC sweatshrit with log for raising sumthin' over like $300. I gave the sweatshirt to my 65 y/ouncle that lost his kidneys to diabetes. Amazingly about a year later, he recieved a transplant!

Is it kidneys or kidnies?

Jersey, jacket, a pullover windproof too., the riding jacket and windproof were extras for the Tour de UP I did, trying to raise funds.....better visibility.

You look good! Very approachable! I'd ask you for directions, whereas before I would have checked first to make sure you didn't have a bag of racoon pelts over your shoulder and a musket....
