Then and Now

I thought it would be amusing to show a side-by-side, or, in this case, an above-and-below comparison of Perry & Reaves through the ages.

First one is that picture I used on the posting just prior to this one. That one is circa 1983, me holding up Reaves. That was in my office, not long after we moved to this house. Somewhere we probably have older two-shots, but that's the one I came across.

Second one is the signing we did at Powell's in Beaverton about four months ago.

Mostly, we appear to be grayer, less fuzzy, and a bit more wrinkled. (That helmet of hair I was wearing back then is not quite as large as it appears -- most of it on my right side is actually a shadow on the wall behind us, but Lord knows, I used to have some flowing locks.)

In the second image, we are sitting down; however, even though he has gained a few pounds, I can still hoist him up if I have to. I, of course, weigh the same now as I did then, though a bit more of it is in muscle than used to be ...

See, I was WAAAYYY nicer than you.

I didn't even mention the fact that I could have taken a cheap shot at the "other" picture.

It's called subtlety, Old Man, and it's a technique that's difficult to master.

I could teach you, I suppose...But then again, this is a new trick, and you're not exactly a spring chicken, hey?

You just never learn, do you Kid?

Wait for it ...
