For years, I haven't given much thought to growing some facial hair to promote Movember since like so many of us shaving geeks, well, I love to shave.

Well this November (even though I started mid-month), I decided what the hell and started a full beard. And it's still around. November ended when it was looking real and I figured "why stop now!". I haven't had anything resembling a mustache, beard, long sideburns or anything more than a weekend stubble patch for decades so I have this crumb catcher for the sport of it.

Now, I have no intention of keeping it - because my wife said so - but should I be shunned from this fine forum or directed to the penalty box?

I beg you for guidance and/or penance. Rolleyes

Humbly,
Billy

I hear you, Billy.

I grew a beard 4 years ago, and actually liked it ... alas, my wife insisted that I shave it off.

Nonetheless, my opinion is that you should not be reprimanded in any way from our forum of wet shaving enthusiasts ... you're still one of us, regardless of this recent behavior. Biggrin

Glad to know I'm not alone, Ravi! We do all have mental lapses, eh? Tongue

Exactly why I may be wise to limit the beard's existence! Confused

As long as you are shaving some part of your face or neck, Billy! No need to put all of those wonderful brushes to waste, my friend! Biggrin
Personally, I have never enjoyed having a beard as it itches too much, especially, in the summer! Biggrin
