EVERYONE NEEDS A PAIR OF HAPPY SUNGLASSES I recently purchased a pair of supersized yellow-tinted sunglasses that make every day sunny and bright. Every- one needs a pair of these sun- glasses. They look great, and give you great confidence as you face every day as a sunny one. Bought mine at the Green Cross Pharmacy on Hanover Street. Talking about sunglasses, when I was a bit younger, ev- eryone thought I looked like Tony La Russa, especially when I wore my Oakland Athletics baseball cap. But that was when my hair was very black. Recently, folks said I was look- ing like Rod Stewart with my long salt and pepper hair. Ear- lier this summer, I cut my hair real short for me, and folks said I was a double for George Cloo- ney. I can't stand that actor, so please never call me Clooney. My hair .is long again, doing my best Rod Stewart impression and liking it.
