I have received one comment and some email messages regarding the authenticity of the photos presented in this blog's initial post. A request was made for before and after photos not only of me, but also of my great friend and traveling bud, Steve.
(;-p). While I no longer proudly sport a healthy mane, keeping what remains well maintained ("manetained"?), this photo should in no way be perceived as deceitful. Some of you may not recognize me without a tie, but the resemblance is undeniable.
