Not a Tango, nothing to see here

May 4, 2012

As I promised my wife… I’ve started my project.

Before I left for Boomershoot, I said that I wanted to start a project.  So, here’s a picture.  This might look familiar since it was in my Beards of Boomershoot post.  Nice, full, red beard.

What project is it that I’ve decided to do?  Often, people ask me “OMG!  How long did that take you to grow???”  and I could only guess and tell them “Ummm…  I dunno.  6 months?  8 months?

So now I will be able to tell everybody exactly how long.  Last night, my little boy and I took care of some business.

Day 1

I know I look crazy tired in that picture.  I was!  I’d only gotten about 4.5 hours of sleep the night before because I’d just gotten back from Boomershoot.  Well…  why is that picture labeled ‘Day 1’?

Because for the next 363 days (today is Day 2), I will be taking a picture.  For 1 year from that Date, May 3rd 2012, I will not shave, trim, or clip my beard or mustache.  In addition, I will take a picture each day.  At the end of the year…  we’ll see what I get!



  1. You need some Turtlewax…

    Fun Project! Also good on you for including the kid! Knew a guy who grew a beard in the winter and shaved in the Summer….One day his daughter ran screaming out of the house because of the strange man!

    Of course I know of people who did exactly what you did, and got the “Mommy, who’s that man at the dinner table” anyway.

    Be interesting to hear your kid’s reactions!

  3. I would not even recognize you now, even if you walked past me and said, “Hey, Scott, it’s me, Tango.” Wow, you look so different!

  4. I haven’t been completely clean shaven in almost forty years; I’ve always had at least a mustache.
