So this is it. The end of the road for Whiskerino.

I'm probably going to repeat what many others have said here but I have to say that I never thought that a beard growing contest would have had such an impact on my life. In 05 I signed up thinking it would be fun for a few days, maybe a week, and then I'd be done. I'm so glad I stuck around and each time it has gotten better and better for me. I've met some awesome folks here that I will probably never loose touch with. That in itself is a profound statement.

Thanks Mackle for putting this thing together.
We all owe him a debt of gratitude.

Beard on brothers.

I'm really glad I met you here. You and Cindy are great folks, and I'm pretty sure we'll be pals for a long time.

Be well, and stay in touch.

"Beard on brothers."

I like that a lot.

It's been great to grow with you seeing as you were one of the ones that I thoroughly enjoyed watching in '07. Your beard is strong. It's been fun.

I don't know if May is ready for that moustache. It's gonna be awesome.

These last few years have been amazing, thanks for being a part of it. Take care, friend.

well said. glad to know you and glad that it's through this place. belonging to this collection of folks is like a calling card. it's says, i'm dedicated, i'm creative, i'm a gentleman (with exception but usually it's just a front for the sake of humor), i can multi-task, i am thoughtful, etc. now, that's true for the most part. anyway, you sir, fit that bill to a tee. hope to see you again soon in some sort of nashvillian gathering.

Phil says:
Paragone. You are awesome. A staple and a legend.

I want to apologize for our short conversation at the Throwdown. You were complimenting my art and telling me nice things and I was all, "Meh. Tired. Go sleep now."

What I wanted to say was that making your Valentine's Day Whiskerbear was a special treat. It was the first time I ever made wings and I discovered I very much like making wings. I since have put wings on many creatures.

So thanks. Truly.

Farewell. See you in the future!

wondermade says:
You have one of the most intense beards.
I'm glad your business is going so well, because among my favorite things about Whiskerino is the volume of people involved who are pursuing their dreams at significant risk. When I talk about that element with friends and family, you always come up. Thanks for the encouragement in that regard, and I hope you continue to find success and satisfaction.

Sorry we didn't connect much, but your beard is one of the iconic beards of Whiskerino for me. It was a privilege to grow with you during this final chapter. Hope to cross paths with you again some time.

You have been a fixture on here since before I ever even heard of the place. You pretty much invented a theme day and that's awesome. And you live in Nashville, which is really close to Kville. I hope we meet again. Until then...

mackle says:
You rule. You brought us beard ghosts. How could we ever repay you for that?

Hopefully our bowling nights will continue ad infinitum; an eternity of rolling.

I am completely blown away that Whiskerino has brought me so many legitimate friends - you being way high on that list. I won't get all gushy because I plan to see you very soon but just know that I appreciate you joining in 2005, sticking around for as long as you have and being a generally fantastic person to know.
