Ancestors of mine?

Someone commented the other day that I look like one of the Smith Brothers of Cough Drop fame. A Google image search confirmed that the Smith Brothers have excellent taste in facial hair.

I've also been compared to Sam Elliott, but I haven't found a picture of him with a beard, only a bushy mustache. Soon, my bushiness will have served its purpose, and my face will take on a new form....


  1. Come now, why shave when you can keep it going until you reach John Knox territory? I say go for the gold!

    At the very least, you've got to go Grizzly Adams style before you shave.

  2. BTW, here's a picture of what you could look like on Sunday mornings if you keep growing your beard and borrow a hat from one of the ladies in your home:

  3. I am looking forward to your creativity.

  4. Jeremy -- I'm afraid John Knox, Grizzly Adams, and Jack Passion will have to wait for another day. In the meantime, I think you could pull off a pretty impressive beard if you put the time into it. Real men don't prompt their buddies to do something they wouldn't do themselves....

    Jared -- I hope to either post an image of the peak of my 2009 bearedness, or link to an image somewhere else

  5. I knew I recognized you from somewhere!!!
