Default Anybody ever notice the models they use

In woodworking magazines make us look like a bunch of old geezers? Why don't they use real woodworkers?

I've noticed that too. But I've also noticed that woodworking shows seem to be populated by fat old guys with gray hair...

At least I'm skinny...

That's funny because here in Japan they are mostly skinny little grey haired men chain smoking

Being still in my 50's (barely), I'm only an apprentice geezer.

Well, I have to admit to being fully into geezerdom. The only concern I have now is being able to remember what I'd like to do in the short time I have left.......

That's why I enjoy going to them, I fit in so well.

Although I'm not sure which is happening faster, my hair going gray or going period.

It's because, unlike TV which makes you gain 10 pounds, being in print makes you lose 10 years.
