Old pictures

Mary's often wondered out loud what I looked like with long hair. Here's the answer, plus a blast from the past for some of the old friends who read the blog.

Patrick, remember this beard?

I rememeber it. I get to remember it at least once a year with the annual beard-growing experiment the purpose of which is to discover if the beard looks any better *this* year than it did the last. Somehow, sadly, it does not. And on its way out, it goes through "mustache phase." Egads! Will we never learn?

Christie commiserates. The only bright sides for her is that it rarely lasts more than 3-4 days, and I never go through a mustache phrase.

And if I did, you wouldn't be able to see it from more than a few feet away.

In fairness, the "mustache phase" (or on occasion the "soul patch" phase)goes some like this

Patrick: (exiting the bathroom) Hey, Dawn look at this!

Dawn: yikes! make it go away!

Ian: Papa, you look like an idiot.

Dawn: No, son, papa IS an idiot.

Patrick goes back into the bathroom to get the caterpillar off his lip
