Well I casued some confusion with my cryptic comments about beard growing and the like.
Well you can rest assured that I am no longer on the path to shaggy beard-vile and I’m veering back to the land of the neatly trimmed. The whole saga, that went largely undocumented on this site, cuminated yesterday with me giving a Valentines card and little bear to a womyn at work.
This got me a hug, a kiss, a (relevant) phone number and a promise of a ‘date’ next week.

Life is good and I am happy!
