Mr. J and Jax, you guys are too kind. This kind of conversation does show us that the feelings and perceptions we experience are all more common than we're likely to think if just left to ourselves. That's one of the greatest things about this board, in my opinion.

Mr. J, I think you're probably right, even though we've gotten used to wearing our beards, we are still probably our own worst critics. Wanting some things about ourselves to be different when we can't change them seems to be a universal part of human nature. I'll never like the way my sideburns are, but I don't let it bother me very much anymore either. At this stage, I've pretty well accepted that they're not going to change, wispy things that they are. I know I can attribute them to genetics, as they are pretty much the same as my Dad's. It's good when we can accept those things that we aren't completely happy with and enjoy them anyway. Thanks for the positive vibes!

Jax, I see no reason why you should envy me anything. I like your idea of taking some pictures to evaluate a self-trim job. It could give us a more objective view of what we're doing. Thanks for a great suggestion!

Absolutely nothing looks wispy about your beard, sideburns or otherwise. At one stage or another i think we all tend to focus in on our so called weaker points or least favoured areas. You can bet that no one else is noticing though that's for sure! You and your fine beard deserve all the plaudits and superlatives that come your way.

Wow your beard is magnificent. Cool pics of Seattle. I'm just a little north in Lynnwood.

Your beard is amazing! And your head head is also looking good. Beard on sir! It's always a pleasure reading through your thread, it being bumped up always reminds me to stop by and see how you're doing.

All the best

Hey guys, Thanks as always for your thoughts.

Mr. Oak, I can always count on you for some uplifting words! I'm afraid I have to tell you that our weather has turned from summer to fall now, and that tourist season is definitely over!

TSK, Thanks for stopping by. Guess I gotta show off some of the good stuff about our area! Looks like we're neighbors. You're off to a good start; I'll keep my eye on your updates. Enjoy the grow!

Woody, Thanks for the cheer! I've looked in on your journey here & there, but need to get busy and go through it more thoroughly. We're both proof that gray hair doesn't mean the end of life!

Rumen, Always nice to bump into you. I hope you're finding time to relax and admire your beard now & then. It's a student's obligation to show off his best scholarly look!

Val, Thank you so much. Cool new avatar! Ice cream cone season is over, at least where I live. Are you going to grow longer again for the winter?

Good Beard Day Today!

Hey Everybody! Seemed like I had a good beard day today, so I shot a quick picture after I got home from work, and just wanted to share it. I liked the way my beard looked with my sweater, too.

Days like today help to make up for those days now & then when things don't seem to work out quite the way we want them to.

So, anyway.....
