Who Is This Character?
Can you guess who this character is?
This picture was taken of me in 1965 at my heaviest weight, 180 pounds. Quite a different look for me wouldn't you say? Especially the crew cut. I don't have enough hair now to make it stand up at attention like that.
When I graduated from high school in 1959 I weighed 160 pounds. Since I have weighed as much as 202 pounds (thank goodness I don't have any pictures of Fat Ron) to a low of 145 pounds. I am 6'3" tall and have a thin frame. Both of my brothers are taller than me and weigh close to 300 pounds. I can't imagine me weighing that much. My God.
I was sorting through some old pictures this morning and I came across this one of me taken at a photo booth right before I moved to New Jersey with Bill and started my new job at Girard Bank in Philadlephia.
Definitely a different look wouldn't you say? Who knows what other "treasures" I will find sorting though old photos.
Note the scar on by my right eye. That scar was caused by forceps pulling me out when I was born 69 years ago. My head was all bloody. The doctor informed my Mother that I probably lost my right eye. I was lucky. I didn't lose my eye but I came darn close. This was just the first of my many close calls that I avoided disaster.
I am a lucky guy and I know it.
