Whiskerino 2009

No trimming! No shaping! Embrace the Whiskerino!

As i have said before, this has been a rough whiskerino for the Danimal family. This weekend, my wife (Danielle) was rear-ended and pushed into the back of a truck. Thanks to the grace of Jesus, she walked away with little more than a concussion and sore neck. I feel that the other details of the wreck are far too trivial to list, as the only part of the story with any importance is that my wife is still here with me.

In her concussed state, she requested that I trim my beard back down. As much as I love being bearded, I love my wife more.

As for Whiskerino, you will be missed. I want to thank you all for the thoughts, prayers, and companionship. I also would like to thank Mackle for reinstating me, though I did little with my second chance.

I hope my wife and I will see each and every one of you at the throw down, and never hesitate to drop me a line at enmonstro/gmail.

despite bowing out and forfeiting my candidacy before ever winning a king beard, I humbly request that @jnonfiction let me have a cut-out cameo in one of his future wins.

Sorry for the run of bad luck but I'm so happy to hear everything is ok! Really puts things in perspective doesn't it?

On a lighter note, my real life name is Daniel as well and we are neighbors on your last day.

Stay strong.

Thank God she is okay. I don't think you need to apologize about the beard.

I second your decision.

I'm very glad she's alright, and I hope that can mark the final bad event in your recent sequence. I look forward to meeting you in Nashville, and perhaps your wife as well. (Mine will be thereā€¦)
