Ever had a really bad idea? Like grow a beard?
 
In bathroom brushing my teeth and looked in the mirror. Face looked like a thousand miles of bad road. Time to knock off 5 days of face fuzz.

So much for looking like 'Old Man on the River.'
:(

even though beards attract everything (dirt, lint, toothpaste, food, etc etc) there is no shame in having one, it adds character !!

Actually wish I could grow one, especially during the Winter. I get some whiskers on my chin and mustache but that's about it.

But on the flip side, I don't have to spend a lot of money shaving accessories.:D

I hate to shave...so I do it about every 3-4 days, so its always knocking off a thin beard, minus the gotee, that part stays. However, wintertime is offical beard time. November to march sometimes April is beard season. I dont care what the wife says :P

Ladies love a nice beard, and especially a nice mustache. Back in the day, nothing said "distinguished" like some facial hair.

I grow a beard 10 months of the year. July and August I have it shaved off but the rest of the year I let her fly. My wife has gotten used to it now and complains less and less.

I have been married for almost three years, and have known my wife for about 6. I don't think she has ever seen me clean shaven. She will not allow it. I do not complain one bit, I hate shaving.

I grew one while moving to Colorado, actually grew in in Wisconsin :) My wife likes it and I love not shaving everyday. Many benefits to a beard. That said, I've got some friends who shouldn't grow one, just doesn't come in right.

The whiskers grow whether I want them or not. Almost every picture of me has the 'you need a shave look'. Every winter when I come home from the cabin I have a task cutting the gray fur from my face. I would be happy if my face went bald rather than my scull................
