  •  Hair, what hair? (8+ / 0-)

    Well, you can see the skin at the back of my head.

    Totally white beard. I've not been clean-shaven since 1981 or so.

    I figure I'll let the beard grow out someday. That, combined with the ever-increasing belly, will give me a leg up on a lucrative mall-Santa position in a few years.

    On a rare occasion, I'll make the mistake of having a couple gin & tonics in me before I head to the bathroom to break out the beard trimmer. That's when other places get trimmed.

    As through this world I've wandered,
    I've seen lots of funny men;
    Some will rob you with a six-gun,
    Some with a fountain pen.

    •  I tried growing a beard in college (8+ / 0-)

      when I grew the mustache.

      Mustache came in fine, it's still in place 40 years later.

      The beard was thin and scraggly ... didn't last 6 months.  I'll never make a good mall Santa I'm afraid.  

      No belly either.

      Damn, that's 2 strikes.

      At least I can HO! HO! HO!

        you'd be surprised how much has filled in. Plus if you do it once or twice it seems to make a difference.

        My first beards looked awful, now it looks pretty decent.
