    More Than One Grey Hair These Days

    I was horrified when I first saw a grey hair sprouting out of my head years ago.  I had tried to go with and embrace the changes, wearing the grey as a badge of maturity.  One of my daughters referred to the several grey hairs I was at the time sporting as “shines...
