The Yeard grows.


The Yeard dies.


Life changes convinced me that the Yeard needed to go, and I decided to keep a neat beard instead.

I usually let my beard go and grow around this time. I'm mindful of how neat it is right now, though, since I'm doing a wedding, so I'm trimming and oiling it with conditioner.



I thought, maybe I'll shave it off at the New Year and grow it back, just to see how lame I look without it. I mentioned this to my kids, both of whom rejected the idea quite vocally. I said nothing further and then the kids told on me to my wife, who was quite nonplussed. So I quickly changed the subject to restore order. I have since dropped the notion.

EDIT: this was taken just before the wedding I solemnized. I was told the beard gave me a look of wisdom.

I'll throw my beard in the ring again. My wife on't let me get it too grizzly, but I'll grow it out about twice a year just for fun.

I didn't know this competition was a thing! So, my first year entering obviously. My beard is never more than 6 months old, as I shave it off completely every 6 months. That said, it grows back almost instantaneously.
So here's pictures from the last time I shave it off...

Suave, no?


The, umm... Chaplin!

That was shaved off on 01 Aug 13. And here's a picture of me today!

This is a rather lame entry in comparison with the others, but since I did have a bit of hair on the face earlier this year, I'll add my pics. (I now have more closely-trimmed sideburns and goatee.)

It's been years since I wore a full beard - but I compensate by letting what's left run wild. And I get to claim some man points by shaving with a double sided razor.

A session of make-up for a future cross-play as Jon Snow. I was in desperate need for a beard! So:

OK, I doubt I'm going to be able to compete with Ms. Jon Snow up there, but I'll put my bearded mug up for folks to judge. This picture was taken two days ago:


At the time, it was 25 days old, and it's the first time in my life when I've had a beard. I tried growing a goatee when I was a senior in college, but I kept having issues with keeping it even on the sides. Then, after I got married, I tried again. It didn't take. I tried a soul patch, but I kept fiddling with it too much. I even tried another goatee last year when I was out of work for a week because I was on bed rest, but it looked too messy.

But the fifth time stayed up! seems to have taken. I think I was getting frustrated with how messy it looked in that in-between stage, and I would just shave it off so I wouldn't have to look at it. Once I let it grow out, though, I liked it. In fact, once I get to the end of No Shave November, I'm planning to hit the barber shop up the road to get some advice for how to trim it and deal with the left side of my face, where the hair seems to grow straight up, while it grows down everywhere else.

Incidentally, this picture was taken the same day I returned from BGG.con. My wife was surprised at how much it had grown out in just a week's time.
