Today’s Top 5

I was 16 in 1969

That was the year I first went on Weight Watchers. Here it is 2015 and I'm still fat.

My Wife Thanks Jean

Thanks Jean.

After all these years her idea is still the best. My wife has lost 10 Lbs. because of Jean's thoughtfullness. RIP

For Further Weight Reduction ...

Lose the wig (or the two cans of hair spray).

No disrespect intended; alas, nothing is so absurd in retrospect as how lovely we looked nearly half a century ago. I know that at the time this was taken, my mauve polyester suit with green saddle stitching and lapels 8" wide was simply breathtaking.
