It was the lumberjack jokes

My time in Abu Dhabi has been a carousel of facial hair styles. At the top of the list is the goatee (technically a Van Dyke, I learned), which I have had for my entire adult life...

My papers, and chin, are in order.

... except for November 2009, when I went clean-shaven...

Look at me, I'm 12 years old!

... and then grew what I called a "gunfighter's mustache" but that Mrs. Blog called "grow back your chin hair, you look like an idiot."

The 1980s called and they wanted their upper lip back (fourth from right).

On our recent trip to Egypt and Jordan, I did the sensible thing and left my razor at home. The result:


How do you say "take me home, country road" in Arabic (also pictured: Mrs. Blog and the Sister-in-Law of the Blog)?

But now I'm back to Chin One, a goatee. Summer is approaching, and that means too much hot, and that means I need to cut back on the amount of hair on my head. Yes, a haircut is coming too. Don't worry--I'm not planning anything radical.
