This is a response to VC 25 Roger 4 ("Comments on the Wedding")...
Roger: The rest of the members probably sensed my feeling that I was a 60-year-old stodgy type and didn't have the energy to keep up with late nite poker games or high leaping dancing at the wedding reception dinner.
Roger: Stuart's beard was the most unexpected mind jolt to me. I guess I felt he was so straight that the thought of altering the "open face honesty" of a bare face with the "earthy image" created by a beard. It jolted me.
Stuart: Hmmmmm. "'open face honesty' of a bare face"? "'earthy image' created by a beard"? Hmmmm.
