Me and the Bulletheads


“It is better to look good than to feel good.”

I’m thinking they’re going to understand this post.

I’m thinking they understand the term bulletheads. Old, bald, muscular, and active. Whereas I am still this.

I'm older and younger than most of you. Mostly, people my age look like insurance executives. They might outlive me, but they've paid a heavy price.

But the irony is that I seem to have paid a heavier price than the bulletheads. My knees don’t work. How did that happen? They weigh somewhere between 180 and 220. I weigh 141 pounds. Their pictures show them para-sailing, water skiing, playing rugby, and tussling with grandkids. I’ve done all those things and a bunch more, but I guess I used it all up.

I still have hair. But now I’m wishing I was a bullethead.

God bless you all. Love talking with you guys. My Harley is cloaked in cobwebs. So is my Yamaha 250. I can just barely get into my Toyota MR2. Talking with you guys is the only way I stay alive.
