Calm down. The photo is 39 years old. But I did marry a beautiful younger woman 30 years ago.

Thanking you over here too...

Being called well-preserved is the highest compliment I can hope for now.

You can't fool me. I happen to know that men and good wine improve with age.

You're too kind, trust me. Does that mean I can drink more wine as I get older, if it's good? There could be a conflict there but I'm prepared to overlook it in the interest of scholarship. I'll be in Italy for the next 10 days with my lovely wife shamelessly trailing after our 16 year old daughter who is touring Italy with a high school choral group. It's the price she must pay for having "mature parents" (as they described us in the birthing classes). I shall test your theory about good wine and report back.

You are then taking my dream trip, my loving husband has promised to get me there in the next year or two. It was going to be next year for my 40th birthday, but I have volunteered to delay for a year because of building the house. We'll see. I can be really frugal when I want to!

I don't blame you for trailing a 16 year old in a foreign country. I will trail all of mine shamelessly in this country or another! Have a wonderful trip, and drink plenty of that superior Italian wine!!

He survived incredible risks in secret missions in Laos and Cambodia, the Tet offensive, and night helicopter actions but lived only 8 weeks after tests for persistent flue-like intestinal discomfort showed he had abdominal cancer 35 years later.
