Whiskerino 2009

Smurf

does not believe in itch.

Written over the past couple of days as Whiskerino was coming to an end and a lot of drinking lol.

My time here has been great even if I didn't participate as much as I would have wanted to this has been the best four months of my life, growing a beard, talking and meeting up with other people who were growing a beard, and seeing all the pictures posted on here every day has made the last four months one of greatest things I have ever taken part in. But sadly as they say all great things must come to an end and Whiskerino is no different, at some point it must end.

As for my beard it will not end, not yet at least. For me the next eight months will be my real challenge, because I plan on keeping my beard until the next Whiskerino comes around and I feel if I can make it past the one year mark for not shaving then until Whiskerino comes around again will be easy. But even if Whiskerino does not come around again I will be shaving at least once more, because come November 1st of 2011 I want to shave again and do it all over again just to see how much more "better" of a beard I can grow without having shaved for almost two years.

So to everyone at Whiskerino and to @Mackle for making this wonderful thing, my beard, my hair and myself say goodbye and so long and thanks for all the fish! (lol) and for everyone who completed this Whiskerino

"So raise your chin and raise a glass
Say here's to winning this again and again
Say I don't care what it costs"
-Evans Blue -Shine Your Cadillac


And for the thing the got me into Whiskerino

"And we'll ride,
and when the engine gives out we won't worry
we know how we'll get by
We'll catch the wind with the hairs on my chin
and then we'll take to the sky
we'll say hello to the angels in heaven (sup girl)
and then we'll pass heaven by
we've got better things to do with our lives
then shave our faces and die!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Don't give up
Don't give in
Without a beard you will never win"

@OzzyNelson Ya I think I was when I wrote the majority of it, but after reading it a couple times over while sober that was the best version I felt the most comfortable posting lol.

i agree with @mattyc, that hair is still unbelievable. absolutely unbelievable.

take care and thanks for growing with us. it has been a treat and a pleasure.

your plan to keep Whiskerino alive by shaving clean on Nov 1 is an admirable one.. I hope it becomes a worldwide phenomena.
