New Picture Thread

Wow he, how nice of you to hang out with your daughter? Niece? Such a nice guy!
Hey I get enough of that in real life, I don't need it here.

She gets carded buying liquor, I get offered seniors discount. And at school all our kids friends thought she was the cool hip mom who lives with her dad.
She gets harrassed by weirdos all the time, but they rarely harass us when we are together.
clearly its the cut of your jib. No one is gonna mess with the grizzled dude who looks like he eats black iron spikes for breakfast. :3

So one thing I've learned about mask-wearing when sporting a beard in the Summer: It sucks.

Hence why I went from this:

I gotta tell ya, it makes a hell of a difference.

Last year, we were pretty sure he wasn't gonna make it to his 14th birthday following a broken back and a series of ear infections on top of his existing health problems (an asymptomatic heart murmur he's had since birth and some eye troubles), but he's tough as nails and doing great!

Your head looks so small compared to the way it was. I'm the opposite. When I have a beard I look my age but fairly slim. I shave and I lose 10 years and gain 10 pounds.
Here, by way of comparison, this is what I was rocking before I went back to work and it was suddenly necessary to wear a mask for three hours every day (that's my commute, round trip):
