    Heh, it's funny because the few times I've joked about cutting my beard off, Mrs. Quads had a fit. She would never let me cut it off. I am allowed to keep it trimmed only.

    Beth doesn't like it because it hides my incredibly handsome face. Maybe ask Mrs. Fiskars why she wants you to keep yours so bad...lol

    haha, good one.

    my wife is the same way though, she won't let me cut it - and doesn't even like when I trim it up a couple times per year.

    HA! Well, she likes it, I think, because it does hide my incredibly UNhandsome face! That, and the fact that she likes how it tickles her legs.......

    I had a full beard for almost 40 years until 1/2 hour before my son's wedding this July. Last thing I needed to do before I got my tux on was to trim the beard. We were running late, and I forgot to put that little gadget on the trimmer than adjusts the trim length. Right down to the face in an instant. :ahhh:


    Not much choice but to shave it all or to go with something new. Check out my son's reaction when I show up with it just before the ceremony.

    BK, that's priceless. Extra funny, though, because everyone else in the pic is sporting a full beard.

    I found this a while back and thought it was pretty funny

    uh, oh. Just was washing my hands after using the washroom and noticed that some hairs in the beard are coming in lighter than normal. Definitely not the "blonde" or "red" ones that I've had in the past. Oh well, what are ya gonna do? Gray hair generally happens to most of us at some point...

    Every year in Saratoga Springs where I live, they have an event called the "Mustachio Bashio" All of the young guys (and gals) hit the bars sporting the most outrageous mustache they can come up with. This one would win hands down. :lol:
