@Poe every day gives me a little more coverage than the last. This still isn't the longest I've ever grown it, and at the end of feb, it still won't be. Each day, shaved or grown, I think positive thoughts to help convince the follicles to produce.

@wondermade only one wall is red, so it's not really a red room. lol

@revgoomba HAH! I've never been to Aberdeen. Now, my niece and nephew lived there for quite a while, and maybe that's where I get that from. Their father was a fisherman, and maybe that's when they lived there. Of all my family there, they were who I was closest to. Both brothers were born (i think) in Ayr, and lived around Ayr and even up towards Glasgow most all their life except they both came back to live in the states many times with my father. My oldest brother lives here in Texas near me now, but he was still in Scotland well into the 90's, and lived in London a few years before moving back here. Mostly my family is from points south of Edinburgh, historically. After all, Scott Monument is in Edinburgh, and I forget how we're related to him, but we are. As I get older I become more interested in my family history, but it's difficult at this point as my grandfather is already past, and he was living in canada and america most his life, and was apparently embarrassed by his heritage so much he worked hard most his life to cover up his accent. My father is born in Texas also, but moved to Scotland just after completing school and lived there quite a while before he moved back to texas and met my mom. The rest they say is history!

My friend is from Banff and he talks a bit like that. It's a dialect called "doric" - CLAME (though you probably know that already).

I don't know if you are familiar with SirKevin from the last two Moustache Mays.

@revgoomba Don't know SirKevin, and only became aware of Moustache Mays after registering for Whiskerino this year. I know there are many scots dialects, but I don't know one from the other just by reading or sound, mostly. My father first got me interested in scots, he'd read robbie burns to me for bedtime stories when I was very young, and when I was 5 my late brother Robbie stayed with us 2 years. At first I didn't understand a word he said, and then by the time he left my father started noticing I was saying things like "cannae be bothered". I'm fascinated by it, in part because it truly is its own language, but deviates enough from the "queens english" that I can truly dumbfound any american I use it on. Then again, I guess I sound like I'm from Aberdeen. ;)

Most likely. Haven't made any arrangements yet.

But for clarity, I undoubtedly sound like a Texan. I guess what I was trying to say is that my caption must "sound" like I'm from Aberdeen.
