Old vs young

YES YES...I work at a sporting store. I have had many older folks speak up with complements on my dreads. Also many younger folks too. It has all been good for me thus far. I am on the older side myself. I thanks them sincerely with all my heart and warmth. They leave with a smile and nice impression of a person with dreads.
I sat next to an older woman on a plane a while back. After we talked for a while she told me she didn't have an issue with my dreads, she had a tenant with dreads once and he was the best tenant she ever had, tidy, polite, a great musician, quiet. She wanted me to know that not all older people disliked dreads, and that since that time she has tried her very very best not to judge anyone.
It was an odd conversation, but a really nice one.
