That's twelve hundred!  That's how many posts I've made to this blog, including this one.  Hard to believe.

And time marches on.  One could call this "What a difference a day makes."

Actually the two pictures were taken about 3 weeks apart but they show the contrariness of my mind.  SWMBO says she can't understand it.  I started growing the full beard at the height of the summer heat.  Then when the weather cooled off I shaved most of it off back to the goatee. 

The weather did not influence my decisions.  I don't know what did, really.  Curiousity, more than anything.  I wanted to see if I looked like Hemingway yet.  But, no, not white enough yet and since I'm now 72 it probably never will get that white.  So it goes.

I've had facial hair for 40+ years. Once on a whim I shaved it off and scared myself. And my wife. And my kids.

Yours looks excellent. And conrats on the 1200 posts. :)

Yes, congrats on 1200 posts. I've yet to reach 300. Tip: if you smile more your pictures would look less like mugshots and more like the most interesting guy alive in those commercials.

Steve, I don't know nor do I know how to find them.

Scott - I think the last time I was clean-shaven was in the early 90's when I was an extra in a movie in Austin.

Stephen - I'd like to be the most interesting guy but my silly grin would give me away.

1,200! Good it means your blog is well established now and there is no fear it will end.

Wow that's a lot of posts! I only have 874 (yes, I checked).

Mike has had facial hair ever since I've known him (married 22 years in December). I probably wouldn't recognize him if he shaved!

I think that 1200 is fantastic! So why so grumpy? Congratulations!
