So this is the end, right?

The story goes: In 2009, Renaud, jnonfiction and Sethro convinced me to participate in the last Whiskerino. We attended the Throwdown and I met some cool people that I never expected to see again IRL.

Last year an unofficial lurker found my photos with some friends and followed the link to my facebook page to message me. I consulted with Andrew and he advised I just go with it.

And much like these facial hair expos, I did just that. I tried to 'bring it' as much as I could and almost a year to the day later, I said my sad goodbyes to my Detroit friends and moved to Nashville where I've since re-connected with those familiar beards and moustaches I thought I'd never see again.

So I'm starting a new life with these friends and most importantly, AliciaRosie & her daughter Charlie and I have every one of you to thank for that. Mackle thanks for this crazy, creative exercise thing I got to be a part of - so many great and unexpected things have come out of these experiences.

Renaud, Andrew, jnonfiction Sethro I miss you guys like crazy and thanks for everything. I think you know what i mean.

And yeah, I got a little choked up writing this.

p.s. In a shameless plug, you can follow the further online adventures of Myself, Andrew, Davis, Renaud and a bunch of guests over at Boss Battle: The Comic

Well, sir, Nashville is glad to have you. Thanks for another month of killer pics. Most importantly, thanks for making it acceptable for grown-ass men to rock shorty shorts in a public forum. You've earned my respect.

while dokcrush and i didn't meet over mustache may, it's been such a huge part of our relationship(just click his name or check out his stuff from last year). which is why i vowed to not let it die. join us over at CLAME, it's not as awesome as this site, but creativity and staches and love will still reign.

Man, it has been a real pleasure sharing w'rino and mm with you. You are a hilarious and good hearted person. It was a pleasure to meet you briefly at the beard bash, and since n'ville is much closer than detroit, we may cross paths again. Great to hear about the addition of aliciarose to your life. It's been a pleasure meeting her thoughout the month as well. Good luck in your new adventure. Hope to see you again. PEACE.

You are one of, if not, the biggest success stories of this site. So awesome that you met your lady via this forum.

Not to mention, you stormed in outta no where and started blowing our minds with photos, then totally hogged ALL of the awesome on GGD.

We will hang very soon.

Mackle says:
I am pleased beyond words to know that I helped cultivate (in some tiny part) the bonding of you two. I hate that I took you away from Team Renaud but I think you're reaping the benefits.

You always brought a phenomenal, zany, over the top creativeness to this whole thing and I was always jealous that you had such great ideas.. with such perfect execution. You win at this and I look forward to follow along on the BOSS Battle.

Hit me up for beers sometime.. we need to make your Nashville residency a great excuse to hang out!

I was confused when you showed up and were not the Miguelito that came before, but that was soon replaced by delight and bemusement at your photos. You've added yourself to my list of reasons to visit Nashville, and I hope to make the trip someday sooner rather than later. You're a very reliable source of ridiculousness.

I'm so glad we got to bro out in California. The transition from internet friends to real friends is always a treat, unless things get weird.

No weirdness here at all. Just regular dudes.

Anyhow, I look forward to hanging out again (hopefully sooner than later). Feel free to bring the rest of Nashville with you next time you come out. I can arrange for some bunk beds.

Take care, bro.

Yes, I was just hiding around this year, so sorry I couldn't be a part. You know how it is, just trying to keep titties on my titties, and titties on my d***. You killed it this year though, I stumbled onto many of your photos in the brief moments I could check in. Take care dude, keep being awesome

Andrew says:
You know, it's interesting that we have these farewells on whiskersites every time they shut down. And yet we keep talking IRL every day even if it's just on the internets. Never mignored. Not never.

You're real AND good people, and talented as shit. You know it, and so does everyone who gets to share even a few moments of your time. I'm glad I'm able to monopolize those spare moments with the most ridiculous inane shit and you seemingly can't get enough of entertaining my insane whimsy by drawing what probably seems to most like it comes from someone in the depths of depravity.

We both know we're going to keep talking and hanging out and we're both going to be better for it. Even if we're in different states and places in life, we're always going to "get" each other. We're like brothers except I'm part Jew and you're part Mexican. It makes for a good team. Spicy matzooooooos and manischewitz sangrias.
