Project Update

Back in July I posted about starting a new project, to wit: "We've embarked on growing a "regimental" mustache, otherwise known as a "handlebar" (or we're tryin' to do so, at least)."  This was our starting point:


This is where we are now:


And then there's a this, just a few minutes ago:



The project is coming along, albeit much slower than we'd like.  We also seem to be somewhat asymmetrical, with our left side growing faster than the right (there's NOTHING political there), which a good trimming might could fix.  I like projects like this: stuff with minimal effort, something I can do in my sleep.

  1. Oh man don't do it in your sleep. When you wake up you'll have to avoid mirrors for months.

    Trust me on this one.

  4. Just remember tho, with that handle-bar you'll have to practice the proper British Sgt Major clicked-heels w. open-handed palm-face salute! :)

    1. I can only recall rendering ONE salute since I retired in 1985, so this won't be much of a problem. ;-)

  5. I'm all for interesting facial hair. I've sported the goatee for most of the past five or six years and my sideburns have been unfashionably long since I first grew them back in the 70's.

    1. I've worn my stache nearly all my life, except for very brief periods when I didn't... measured in weeks. Beards come and go, too.

Just be polite... that's all I ask.
