Adams…Grizzly Adams

With the holidays, I have been pretty absent from all things Internet.  We’ve had family in town and really enjoyed our Christmas celebrations.  Last week, I mentioned one of my Brother’s traditions in which I participated this year.  We grew beards from Thanksgiving to Christmas, then shaved them off in pieces.  I had never grown a beard before so this was a new adventure for me.

So, without further adieu, here is a pictorial record of the transition:

Where I started...December 20, 2009
Gee whiz, my chin was cold!
Check out the handsome guy on my brother's left!
Perhaps a future in pro wrestling?
Yeah, I can't explain it either...

So, when Abigail finally saw me clean shaven, she told me she liked me better the other way.  Lots of people did in fact and that sort of gave me a complex…don’t you like the “real” me?  Do I need to hide my face under a beard?  Oh, the blow to my psyche!

  1. Yep, I already added to the psyche problems over on Facebook. It’s just hair though, man. It’s not like we told you that you’d look better if you lost a bunch of weight or pierced your eyebrow or got a full tattoo of Mickey Mouse on your belly.

    Oh, don’t bother clicking on my blog. It’s just me whining about the fact that I can’t load pictures. iPhoto is being a stinker and I can’t figure out why.

  2. You can pull of both looks, just not the chunky half gone look (sorry). There is something kinda rugged about the beard look…

  3. I like the beard too, but as a hairdresser, I always say it’s a nice change. It’s not that we don’t like your face, it’s just a nice CHANGE!
    Honey Butch shaves and grows his whiskers so much I don’t always even notice!
    Warren, were you hugging/touching your brother?

    Hey, you came up in conversation at the New Years party last night. It was a question in a game we were playing. Something about bees. I whispered to Honey, “we should ask Warren”, He said that’s what HE was thinking!!! LOL!!!

    Happy New Year to you and Emily! Many Blessings in twenty-ten!

  4. Ok, here’s my thing…that top photo is my favorite because it’s just…you…no thumb-sticking up or silly faces, just you…your eyes are twinkling and you’re smiling a genuine, warm and handsome smile. Maybe you could give us one of those types of smiles without the facial hair (and the thumb) and we can all take another vote?

  5. Hey, I haven’t stopped by in forever! Sorry. I’ve been sucked in by that evil Facebook. I did like the beard on you, but I’ve heard they can be itchy. The pro-wrestler look was the best.

  6. Pro Wrestler and some tats all down your arms! I do agree with the comment about the first picture. It would probably look good with or without the beard. It is just a good picture. Well, after you shaved the beard, I broke down and shaved my legs. I feel much colder now for some reason.
