Steve & I - bearded and not

I made an excursion down to Phoenix last night to take in an Arizona Diamondbacks game with my buddie, Steve. (The D-backs won 6 to 1 over the Washington Nationals.) But I was stuck by our changing appearances. Steve and I, that is.

You see, for many years, Steve had a full beard. A few years ago he looked like this.

Looks happy, doesn't he?

At roughly the same time, I looked like this.


Hmmm, I appear concerned, don't I?

Well, as I have said, times change. This is how Steve and I looked last night at the ball park.

Steve appears unsettled while I appear to be proud of my foliage. (Even though it's white.)

I think Steve needs to grow his beard back again. He says he doesn't think he will. That may have something to do with his wife telling him he looks younger bare-faced.

As for my hirsute appearance, I say I'm modeling myself after the late Jerry Garcia.

'Course, he had better hair than I do. But he's dead, too!

Anyway, here's my goal.

Yeah! Z.Z. Top! I have the dark glasses already. I don't know about that cap, though.

  3. Move over Z.Z.!! You must keep us posted on the progress of your whiskers, Mr. C. You're right, your friend Steve does look a bit unsettled without his beard!

  4. I love men with hairy faces - btw your friend does look more content when he had one - but that one with squirrels nesting in it does nothing for me!

  5. Love your whiskers- regardless of colour!
    You are a handsome man. SWMBO can be very proud, of her man.

  6. Steve looks a little like Kris Kristofferson in the old photo. You look a little like Kriss Kringle in the new photo. Wish I could have been at the ball game.

  7. We all need a goal to keep things interesting. You have a good start but I think it may take a while.

  8. Keep the beard, but ZZ's hat looks like an infestation of maggots. Not a good look!
