Switchin' Flies

By Barney Nelson.
 
I suppose someday I should address the photo that mysteriously began showing up beside this column. I used to look like that. Really. However, I do want those who know me to know that I did not provide the picture nor suggest it. It was all this crazy newspaper editor's idea. I have no idea where he found it. I'm not complaining though. I guess this column is often based on memories and the picture brings a lot of them back. First off, I've always been cursed or blessed with thick hair, so keeping a hat on was a challenge. It is pretty much the badge of a guntzel to lose one's hat, so I worked hard at keeping it on my head no matter what happened.
