All good things must come to an end. I've said from the start of my third tour of duty here on the Whiskerino that I grew a beard for the sake of the Throwdown. When I discovered (to my dismay) that it was scheduled at a time when I would be unable to attend. Surely I could have keep growing — but it all began to seem pointless to me; to keep doing a thing (that had grow to be more and more pushed to the background, more an effort, more a burden) without the final payoff, which now won't come.
All good things must come to an end, and my friends, this is the end.
I'm not sure if I'll see any of you again, and some you never get the chance to meet; and for that I'm most sad. I've made friends for a lifetime, which is the greatest gift a site about growing beards could give. I'm indebted to @Mackle
for pouring his heart and time into a thing so absurd and perfect.
All good things must come to an end.
Farewell bearded brothers.
