The silver Fox

Postby Apple » Wed Mar 13, 2013 12:55 pm

I tell you what ladies.
I don't know what I was thinking when I said I am hanging the bike up :roll:
I went out today to Akuna bay after a long break due to back pain from my new bed ( all good now). It was a beautiful morning.
To make it even more exciting, I saw very handsome Gray foxes on carbon bikes. Now I didn't come up with that term my self, I was telling my daughter about these handsome baby boomers :mrgreen:
She tells me Oh wow, I love Gray foxes. :?

Looks like I will be keeping an eye on her. :evil:

A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend. A successful woman is one who can find such a man.

My cousins all went silver in their early/mid 20s due to genetics. One even has the nickname 'the Silver Fox' (it may even be his army nickname) as he embraces his silver foxiness (I believe the others may dye to remain more 'youthful looking'). So you can get some young ones. :P

Many of us are "nicely plump silver foxes" these days, Apple.

Nothing wrong with some padding.

It is nice to know though that the young have a name for oldermen. Like silver Fox. I think it sounds better then a cougar :oops:

Word. Salt & pepper is to be vigorously embraced. Rock it, don't stop it gentlemen.

Glad you're happily back in the saddle too Apple :)

I believe grey hair is hereditary... you get it from your kids...

I started getting greys in my mid 20's, as soon as my son was born...

I wish my salt and pepper was evenly distributed and not in neat piles over the hair and beard :(
No intention of stopping it, the body might be slowing down but as long as there's a bike the spirit will be forever 16.
...whatever the road rules, self-preservation is the absolute priority for a cyclist when mixing it with motorised traffic.
