I took this photo of Neil Young sometime between 1980 and 1982 – I think it was at The Mosque, but can find no proof of that right now. Where are those ticket stubs? They’re around here somewhere. I bet I paid over $10 to go to that show….
Anyway, the photo is not great; I got a mediocre grade on it for photography class. But I remember thinking he was amazing.
All this a long way from the impetus for this post.
We like to do some of our grocery shopping at Harris Teeter. And when I say we, I mean Andrew.
So he was shopping last week – Thursday I think it was. And as he walked out reading his receipt (as he always does), he noticed that the young whippersnapper who checked him out gave him the 5% Senior Discount.
I don’t think he looks SIXTY for goodness sakes. But, in the kid’s defense, it’s hard to judge when you’re 18 or 20. Remember?
