From MSN's analysis of Facial Hair:
 
"If your guy is a mustache-man, he deserves major props. The 'stache is the only difficult part of a beard, making it hard to eat, kiss, etc. ... For a man to voluntarily take on the hardest part of the game ... it's a sign that he bows to no challenge, least of which being the number of negative stereotypes that so unfairly haunt the mustache."
 
'Nuff said.
There was a day Scott had no 'stache.  Check him out and follow him, too, as he tries hard to match the old man.

Week 1 and, as always, a weak one.
Week 1 and, as always, a weak one.
As a group we may be meeting virtually, but there's no way to virtually grow a sweet 'stache.  But already I'm 'virtually' kissing Barb as she repells from the bristles.

Now, if you think about it, our fund raising has always been essentially virtual, as we solicit largely through e-mails and donations are mostly done online.  So, together, Lets (virtually) Grow This Thing!  Help me help the kids of Richmond beyond what we did last year.  And that was $360K!!!  Let's Grow This Thing!

 
Week 2, and it's still barely there, but coming along...?
Week 2, and it's still barely there, but coming along...?
Week two and the 'stache is coming in but, as usual slowly.  The good news is I've had complements already, and some...from women!!  Usually at this stage I get what I got the other day from my daughter:  She stopped dead in her tracks and sad:, "Oh, God, there it is!"  I guess being in public with a mask keeps mothers from pulling their kids closer, as has happened in the past.  So maybe just a sliver of a silver lining in this Covid mess.

Let's help give the kids a silver lining.  EVERY dollar of your donations goes directly to our charities thanks to our sponsors that cover our meager admin costs.  Last year that was over $360,000.   Help me keep that up.  Thanks in advance.  It's For the Kids!!


 
Oh, the Itch!
Oh, the Itch!
Week 3 and damn, the itch!  And, damn, the recoil when I approach Barb for a peck!  I will admit it kinda sorta "catches" in her hair when I give her a hug in lieu of kiss.  But...  It's For The Kids!!   As in years past it sure as hell doesn't look too great, as I think I've said before masks a silver lining in this whacko year.  Not as self conscious in public. 
Believe it or not I'm smiling.  That's why the 'stache is crooked!
Believe it or not I'm smiling. That's why the 'stache is crooked!
Although people probably do wonder why I'm sporting a mustache on my mask...   But you know, and thanks to many of you look at my total!  Blew through my original goal, and on to beat my second goal.   THANKS whether it's for your monetary or moral support.  Both mean so much.   Let's Grow This Thing!!
