I watched that show back in the day and liked George Carlin later on. Had no idea that was him on That Girl.

Some clarity to that photo...George wasn't a "That Girl" regular...he just had a role in one episode of the show's first season.

I've heard people make snide comments about older folks with Corvettes or other sporty cars. Shit like "senior acting like a teenager" or just "mid-life crisis car." I've been the target of such comments when I owned a Z4. If I bother to reply, it's to explain that the reason folks who own these cars are older is often because it's the first time in their lives that they've had the discretionary funds to buy such a car. Usually a high salary at the end of a career, kids are gone and through college, house is paid up, etc. Now it's time to enjoy the fruits of decades spent working your butt off to get to this point.

Maybe not so old. Iím at the doctorís office. They asked the woman in front of me her date of birth. She says Ď61. I almost fell over. She looked old enough to be my mother instead of 2 years older than me. I feel pretty good right now. Happy Friday!

If you go to high school reunions the same thing can happen. I've got classmates that look more like parents than classmates. It's amazing how different we can all age.

While there is no evidence to support it, I am pretty certain that driving BMWs makes us all look younger.

About a year later, I was fortunate to watch the New Christy Minstrels perform at the EM club at our base camp near Cu Chi, Vietnam, 1969. I was rarely at our base camp, so really lucked out on that one. One night of hot meals, a beer and great entertainment. Flew on a UH-1 back to our field camp the next day. The venue change was dramatic. Back to the sandbags and ringworm and...
