It's official. After 23 months, I am no longer bearded. I realize that to those who don't appreciate facial hair, these so-called non-beard pics look pretty much like beard pics; but no, it's back to a goatee - a very full, long, and sometimes scarey-looking (just ask the small children in the neighborhood) goatee. But despite that, the few who have managed to have a seat on this face know that it's a very soft, yet lively ride. Applications for the next ride currently being accepted.
