  •  I quit shaving 15 years ago (0+ / 0-)

    after a serious bout of food poisoning laid me out for a week.  My beard finally came in soft after 2 more weeks.

    I bought a hair/beard trimmer from someplace back then ($25 with all the attachments) and just give myself an all-around trim every month or so.  I just shampoo and rinse everything to keep it clean, towel dry and brush/comb out to keep it untangled.

    I still have my dad's old Shick safety razor in case I decide to get rid of the beard.  But, I've had the beard for so long that no one would recognize me if I did get rid of it.

    The Golden Rule isn't so golden if you don't bother polishing it with every soul you meet. (-6.5,-4.1)
