I think this pic is a fitting bookend to my first post of the month. Thank you for visiting!

Where to begin? For the past 3 years I have looked forward to May and displaying my moustache, much to the dismay of my wife (even though she has participated a few times!) This year has been especially important to me because we packed up and moved from Texas, my first time not living there in almost 27 years. This made it easier, and I thank all of you for that.


I would drop names of everyone who meant so much to me on this trip, but there isn’t enough room, and I am sure I would leave someone out, so instead I will just say “Thanks!”

They say all good things come to an end, but I don’t see this as an end. We have had marriages, proposals, births, graduations, birthdays, deaths, journey’s into manhood, little one’s fighting for their lives, lurkers, yeards, stripes, orange soda, face paint, photoshop, Mayor’s, Kings, groundhogs, shames, travels across the globe, theme days, chats, CLAMEs, Butes, and one Bad-A movie Trailer! But the one thing that tied it all together was the Moustache and our collective love of Moustache May. And for that, thanks Mackle, and Derble and everyone else.

Hit me up on the Facebook, or email me, or send up smoke signals, or learn semaphore. I will respond!

Every May I will be sure I sport some type of stache. And since we are Master’s of the Universe called Moustache May, I will end with this:

“Don’t say good-bye, Say Good Journey. Live the journey, for every destination is but a doorway to another.”

Ok, where do I start.....I don't know it got started but you and I immediately hit it off. We spent many late nights as "rookies" to this site shooting the breeze and having a good time! You have truly been my favorite on this site for the entire three years. I admire and respect you as a friend, a husband (obviously not mine, haha), but mist of all a wonderful father to Jake. You are an inspiration to all and I will always look at you in admiration for all if your great qualities. One of these days I will make sure we get together for a long overdue meet up. I am proud to call you a friend, wish you the best, and look forward to seeing you soon!

This was a great end. I have enjoyed your photos. I would have liked to do something similar in Dublin, Ohio, but it would have only lasted one day. I have really enjoyed your work over that past 3 years, and hope that you continue to inspire others in all that you do. Later, my friend.

miguelito says:
thanks for the clamebute man. i really appreciated that. people tell me clamebuting me isn't easy. maybe they're right. maybe they're crazy (lazy?). either way, you stepped up. i don't get many clamebutes, because at the end of the day i usually think that my stuff hasn't been that memorable to warrant them. but someone someday pulls out a clamebute of some ridic photo of mine, and this year that guy was you. so thanks again.

Good bye to my friend Stachetastic .... You have had a missive influence on me, even if you didn't know it. Sometimes the greatest impact comes from the most subtle of things. I am hoping that your future will always be bright and that we will touch base again!
