My wife was a hairdresser, she advised me when my first few grey hairs appeared around the age of fifty, “Start dyeing your hair now, a shade close to your natural colour, then nobody will notice.”
Fifteen years later she made me stop dyeing it because in the space of a few weeks two people had referred to me as her son.
You are absolutely right that our attitude to ageing will affect the way we age, but there’s nothing wrong with a bit of cheating.

Opted for comfortable retirement before I was fifty due to health problems and burn out. Now spend my time writing and goofing around. Home: northern England..
