Men experience the world in different ways, and many of those ways are not always familiar to women.
The archetypal American male, the cowboy hat a symbol of the Wild West and all the universal stereotypes of America.
The military – once a rite of passage for almost all American men – another stereotype.
And still another, hunting, fishing, and cars.
When the years roll by and time sweeps through, like women brought up on a steady diet of “beauty is everything,” men also face enormous changes.
From the self-assured cowboy to struggling with a grocery cart.
