This week's theme is about hair, weird illnesses, unflattering pictures, imagination run riot, whatever. In my family collection I have a lot of strange hair styles and unflattering portraits.
One particular style always amuses me. Its the clean shaven above, under the chin beard. I suppose it has its uses.
1. Keeps the neck warm
2. Hides the neck wrinkles
3. Keeps food scraps on the chin and out of the beard
4. More pleasant for kissing
I particularly like the hair style in this one. I wonder what they used in those days before gel to get that effect - beeswax?
In this younger version, the hair has not quite receded below the chin and he has a slight fuzz above the upper lip.
His hair style would make Elvis envious.
Personally I think if you are going to grow hair on the face and your wife doesn't mind the tickling effect, then you might as well go the whole hog, so to speak.
