Wink Re: Ever had a really bad idea? Like grow a beard?

Started with a regular shave/soap thing and zero penetration. Had to dig out an old electric and plug it in....... Still took close to 10 minutes. Face now looks like 500 miles of rough road, but at least I'm down by 50%.

Default Re: Ever had a really bad idea? Like grow a beard?

I've had a beard for 15 years. In addition to its debatable aesthetic qualities, it saves me having to shave in the morning. My wife doesn't like it. It's not coming off unless I need surgery or something.

Beards are a sign of a rich inner life.

My beard started in '68 after living in a bunker. I went to Woodstock in "69" and it's still here. I keep it trimmed. It's grey.

Boy ain't that the truth!! Or my damn ears, Mrs Fysh takes the tweezers to my ears every few weeks to keep em in control.

I like to keep my whiskers on the short side too.

Hate shaving, so I don't. I just trimmed it after a year of just letting it go.

First time I've actually laughed out loud in days! My first 'Beard' was the result of falling off my roof. Well, the fall was nothing, the contact with an asvalt drive way was another matter. Still keep that old Costco entry card as that's the only picture I have.
