Well, I'm finally feeling a bit better about my beard; but still hoping to let it grow and fill in for the rest of this year.  I think it will take a few more months before I can decide on a beard style that 1) I can grow, and 2) that fits me. :D 

I think I'm going to try a "detached mustache". But not sure I'll go for a handle bar. Any ideas?

Congratulations on the 14 week and the good looking beard.  I suggest you leave the mustache connected, but a handlebar would be a good thing to try.

Are you ready to move over to Established Short beards?  Just let us know and we will get you moved.  You have earned it.

Thanks so much BMWKIZ.

Plan on sticking around for a while, just usually get busy with my kids and grandkids, so hard to check in as much as I'd like. But hey, good problem to have. :D But I have to say, 58 really doesn't sound like an 'old guy' to me. :D 

As far as picking a style; still waiting for my beard to grow and fill in some more before I decide; but currently thinking of something between the following two pics. Currently thinking of trying a 'detached mustache', but short of a full blown handle bar. Any suggestions?

Sounds good to me Slybeard. Thank you. Just hope I can find it again. LOL

Welcome to short beards - this is a great beard.  I think a big stache paired with your strong beard would be a great look.  Keep doing what you're doing - it's coming along well.

Welcome sir.
Good growth from your early December showing to the present.
I like the fuller moustache look atop of a shorter/medium beard, a kind of George V look.
It's one of many you'll be able to pull off with your coverage.

Hi, just saw your thread, your beard is developing so well, getting thick and wavy and I really look forward seeing it grow on.
