    Going for my 'Larry' look

    Haven't grown a beard in 15 years and haven't mostly because the girls I dated then didn't like them. I grew it out for the halloween party and my wife says she likes the look. It's now 7 days old and starting to get past the prickly stage. It used to be reddish in color back then, but it's now mostly gray...what happened? I suspect it's been the 2 kids and 3 mortgages between then and now that is the culprit.

    Not fair, Larry would win...

    So, as far as contest rules, would it be existing beards? Shave and start a new one? Interesting idea...

    Larry would win the scragly beard contest but I think I could give him a run for his money for the greyest.

    I nominate Brent to come up with the rules for the contest. Oh and we will need a bearded smiley.

    I'm game.


    1. On the contest start date, all contestants will post a picture of themselves, clean shaven, with something that clearly identifies the starting date. Acceptable verification of date would be a newspaper, or their cell phone showing the current date and time.
    2. The contest will run for 3 months.
    3. At the end of the 3 month period, prizes will be awared for:
      • Longest Beard
      • Most Creative Beard
      • Grayest Beard



    Just a start, any suggestions?

    Nov 1 start date? It is a Monday.

    What do we do for the ladies in the house? Maybe we can let Cynthia and Carrol be the judges?
