In the 1950’s many individuals believed they were cool.  The guys wore leather jackets, tight pants, drove the fastest cars and smoked cigarettes.  The girls dressed in skirts and wore saddle shoes.  Everyone believed they were the coolest around.  Now in this era it is amazing how people look and dress so they can look the part, be in style and even try to look younger.  I was in a large grocery the other day when I saw a woman probably older than me with unkempt clothes and scraggly hair with portions dyed pink.    If she was hoping to look hip, modern, or even cool she was wrong.  She simply looked like an older lady trying to fit in with the younger crowd.  Many people do piercings, tatoos, wear skin tight clothes, etc. all to look younger and hope they fit in.  Sadly, I do not believe they are achieving the status they are seeking.  We all age and need to do it gracefully.  Trying to look or act cool is not the answer.  Many older people simply give up on their appearance.  They look unkempt from head to toe.  I am sure they didn’t always dress that way. Somewhere along the way they lost all confidence, hope and possibly the will to even live a happy life. We all try to look nice because we still care about how we look not only to ourselves but to others. The Good Gus Series is available online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones.
