After 19 months of various stages of hair and wax, I've decided to let the upper lip out to play for a while. It only seems fitting. I joined this party for the first time last year, after a couple of years of toying around with various stache styles on my own. I had hit a fairly low point in my personal life, and had originally planned to sign up simply as a means of distraction. Now here we are, over a year later, and I'm still distracted. Only now, I can say that I am the happiest I've been in years. This site, and my stache, have served their purpose. As painful as it is to give this up, I'm doing it with a smile, knowing that I've crossed paths with some of the most amazing and talented people I will ever meet.

A quick thanks to Chalkdog for this year's amazing clamebute. I was surpised to hear such kind words thrown my way from someone I've never even actually met. Your pics have inspired me to explore a creativity that I never knew I possessed. You've set the bar high, and I hope, one day, to catch up.

A huge thanks to kimmie for the encouragement and support that allowed me to lose the stache without feeling too guilty about it. (I didn't cry at all!)

Infinite thanks to Death (aka mooka) for sparing me for another month. I know we'll meet again one day, but I'm not planning on it anytime soon. Sorry.

Thanks to my Droid for taking and uploading 95% of my pics this month.

Thanks to everyone who grew a stache and shared it with the world.

Thanks to the lurkers for all the love and support. You guys and gals are my heroes.

Most importantly, thanks to Mackle for making all of this possible. We all owe you so much. Maybe I'll buy you a catfish pancake someday.

Oh, and binkleberry.....this final shower curtain is all for you, buddy!

Everyone please feel free to keep in touch. I'm most easily found through Twitter (NashDoubleJ), email (halfmanhalfman at gmail dot com) or Kik Messenger (SenatorJohnson) for you mobile folks. SenatorJohnson is also always up for a good game of WordFeud or Words With Friends. I may even join the 21st century and get a Facebook one day. If I do, you all will be the first I hunt down.

Be seeing you.....

MrsPip says:
Secretly, I think you are more handsome without the moustache. I would never admit that on this site though.

Not going to say any mushy goodbye stuff here. I'll be seeing you so soon, it's not even worth it.

Thanks SenatorJohnson I enjoyed yours also ! Sad that you shaved, but you now look so much younger, I guess that's good haha. Can't wait to see the future of moustaches also.

Ozzy Nelson says:
the fellow was quite handsome with the moustache i'd say.
no reason to feel guilty. kimmie is right.

Chalkdog says:
I have to admit I let out an audible gasp when I saw you'd shaved that signature stache! But, that's obviously still you there, and from my limited experience of knowing you, any decision you make for yourself has got to be a good one. (Not to say you may be getting occasional messages from me encouraging you to bring that stache back!)
Thanks for the kind words above. You already know I found you to be a defining personality here. I'm glad to have had this adventure last year and this year. I'm glad you were here.
I wish you the very best.

Can you keep wearing that shirt now?
Yes, I think you can.

I'm glad you've found a measure of joy. That's no small thing in a world that tends towards chaos. Be well.
