New Look...Maybe

I never thought this would happen, but it did. I always enjoyed having a beard and not shaving.
However, after several cooler than normal summers in western Washington, in a row,  I knew we were due for a warmer than usual summer.

And thus it has happened. Hey, I'm not complaining, it could always be hotter, and, compared to the south, this ain't nothin'.
However, I'm not used to it, so I'm looking' for ways to be cooler.

Cooler than I already am, that is.
Well, it is possible, theoretically.

I will let you, dear readers and fellow Raccoons, be the judge.
Should I stay with the clean shaven look, or should I go back to the clean bearded look?

Works for me. Good to know what my fellow Raccoons look like. I shaved my goatee a few years back, really freaked out my youngest daughter, they were much younger then.

Thanks John,
It sure feels weird after having a beard for so long. On the plus side, no kids will mistake me for Santa Clause now.

Thanks Julie!
I think it makes my nose look bigger, but I'll defer to your better judgement. Besides, with all these hipsters growing beards now, I feel more like an outlaw without one. :)

When you are incredibly handsome, why add distractions? Looks good.
