Tonight's the night I shave

So, it’s been decided. Tonight is the night I lose the last vestiges of our trip on the John Muir Trail. Since we left in late July, I haven’t shaved my beard (other than to cut the nasty neck scruff) and it has gotten BUSHY AND LONG.

I’m done. It is actually more work than my normal look. I find myself looking at my face from different angles in the mirror every morning to see how the shape is holding up.

Yes, I comb it.

I even pull at it while I work. I hate to think about the super long hairs now taking up residence in my keyboard. My nephew and niece also pull at it… sometimes also while I work.

So it’s gone tonight. Sorry to all you who can’t grow such a thick, plush beard but really want one, but believe you me — it’s not all it’s cracked up to be.
