Eddie As Fisherman Friday

I wanted Ed to try on this wool coat and cap because I just knew he'd exude that Maine fisherman look and I wanted a picture of it. Boy, was I right!

This is the last known picture of Ed in his beard. I've been at him for months to shave it and he kept saying he didn't want to, that he wanted it to get longer. Longer? Like ZZ Top longer?? But no matter how much I begged and pleaded, he wouldn't do it.

Then...we got a call for a load. And wouldn't you know it, one of the requirements for taking this load (since it was going to a power plant) was to have a clean shaven face; their safety department required all people to be able to fit a mask snugly to their face, against their skin. Having a beard wouldn't make that possible, so Ed had to shave it.

Bwah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha... <--- My evil laugh. So he shaved most of it off, leaving just a little goatee. He is now once again SUPER cute, instead of just regular cute.

Hey! Remember me? I'm Lulu...the one who sent you the MAC cosmetics about a year or so ago...maybe longer? Well, my blog is officially zapped from the internets after taking a very looooooooooooong break and accidently letting my web hosting account lapse *poof*, but I wanted you to know that I just started following you again!

Funny story about poor Ed and his beard. Even funnier, because my husband sports a goatee himself, and he knows that I am not partial to his clean-shaven face. So, I know if he's mad at me, because he uses that stupid goatee as his "getting even" tool. If he's pissed, off it goes. Men.

Lulu - Yes, I remember! And I'm STILL using those MAC colors! The purple one is one of my favorites!!

Aren't men something else? WTF? I guess they have so little they *actually* get to control, the least we can do (I suppose) is give them control of the facial hair on their very own face. LOL
