How old is old? If grey hair is any indication, then I must not be more than a day older than 200 years.

Guess all those trips to Shiloh with my Papaw added up to this.

My profile pic was taken when I was a young man of 35 while camped outside of Burkittsville, MD serving with Company C of the 53rd PVI.

Hi.

I need to know if asking if my beard is grey, or my wife's grey beard under her armpits, and on her legs?

Well, I have a couple patches of gray, but I'm 36.
Sorry. I suffer from a serious case of typosis. Don't worry, it's not contagious

Re: How many grey beards around....... 7 years ago #48

I'm 30. And since I have been growing my winter beard, I have noticed a few grey hairs in it.. Mostly obtained from raising three children.. and working on this game...

Fear not, it will seep out through your skull over time. That happens more when you're done with college though, I won't go off on a tangent as to why.

Grad school, on the other hand, just makes your hair fall out. I'm only 25 and don't feel a day over 65

No doubt. I'm putting some applications together for a few PhD programs, and this alone has been extremely taxing.

Re: How many grey beards around....... 7 years ago #52

Well, I'm 48, and I do have a grey beard, and grey hair. I think I'm getting better looking as the years add up, but the wife says she doesn't have to worry about me ever getting a mistress so I guess good looks is in the eyes of the beholder.

Later!

Well, bugle calls to Norb and the crew {to many to type, but you know who they are} The great ACW games they have helped produce and refine have brought together the "old farts" and "young bucks" as one in harmony. Everyone on this forum deserves a round of applause for just being the fun and respectable people you are. A great pleasure to be with all on this journey.

Hmmmmmm...... last time I remember seeing my toy soldiers was just after I put them into a Lincoln Log cabin then shoved an M-80 through the door. I think some were headed north and some south.
War is cruelty. There is no use trying to reform it. The crueler it is, the sooner it will be over.
