Congratulations on your anniverary, and thank you for posting a pic that makes me less embarrassed about how “totally 80’s” my tux was in the, er, 80’s…

Wow! You married up!
(As did I: the mercy of women never ceases to amaze me.)
But when did you decide to start shaving your head?

Shave? I’m totally natural in baldness.

Finally, my powder blue junior prom tux in ’85 looks like it fits in. Thanks, Scot!
Merry Christmas and happy anniversary!

Dang! I wore that same tux to my junior prom!!! (just kidding)
Seriously though Scot, if we as a society would bury our fathers in tuxes like that, funerals wouldn’t be so sad…
