To Scruff Or Not To Scruff


So,  it’s not something I really have to deal with,  other than I am the person looking at him,  but the question was asked.

“Do I  shave it all off? ”

He was a bit bushy there after Punta Cana and I had mentioned it was time to trim it again. He unearthed a clipper set he has had buried for a bit,  clamped on the guide and began to rid himself of a bushy beard, except, he went a tad farther than he’d expected with the first pass and was therefore committed to this new length.

To say I was a little surprised when he walked out is an understatement. I just stared at him, which of course made Mr. Self Conscious squirm. So, I stared. And he squirmed. Stare. Squirm.

What he didn’t realize was what I was seeing. He’s had some kind of facial hair in mass quantities for years and years and years and years and years – ok, you get the drift.  So long that I had forgotten that little dimple he has on his right (left in photo) cheek. Seeing that little dimple there brought back a wash of memories from our ‘beginning’ when he was but a young lad.

Perspective is an interesting thing.

I think I like it short.


I believe you make your own reality whether good or bad. Thus, my favorite saying is, "Say what you mean and mean what you say."

Well, Sharon, if you wanna know what I think....
