It started out as an experiment a couple of years ago. I drive the Colorado High Country on a regular basis as part of my job delivering fuel to mountain locations. Without getting too carried away with all of the aspects of the job, it can get darned cold at times! So I decided to let my hair grow out "a bit" for extra insulation.
IT was all well-and-good until one day Bill, another fuel hauler, made a comment about his hair, or the lack thereof, to the effect that "it is what it is". And so I took his word for it: I decided to let my hair grow, and it would be "what it is".
Sometimes a person gets a vision as to what they think they "should" look like. I had just such a vision. Thanks to my Lady Friend, she was able to get a pretty good representation of my vision:
Anyway, I've cleaned up a bit since then. May wash the coat some day. It's a work coat and gets grungy quickly, and I don't like to wash it often since it's waterproofed. As bulky as it is, it's too hard on the dryer. The hat is leather; standard work fare for me. Guys at the rack don't recognize me if I don't wear the hat! It's water proofed and keeps the snow and rain off of my face and from going down my neck.
Real difference between this one and the blog profile pic. Guess I'll have to update it.
Ok, as my Lady say, "Enough of me talking about me. How about you talk about me for a while?"!
Until next time, keep the rubber side down.
