Scruffy McGee

Here’s a picture of my daughter at her birthday party, checking out the awesome coloring book my wife made for all the kids. I lead with this picture because the one that follows is not quite as cute.

Also, my latest Sippy Cup Book Review is up at BeAGoodDad.  This week’s book is Cat’s Pajamas.  Check it out and let me know what you think.  Any constructive criticism is welcome as always.

It’s been a while since I posted any updates on the playoff beard. Our camera has been on the fritz, we’ve been planning our daughter’s birthday party, and so on. Last night, I finally decided to get a picture. As you can see, this one is a self portrait. I really wasn’t in total darkness when I took the picture, just so you know. I had to do some Photoshop magic because the flash was too bright on my face. Also, I’m wearing my glasses. It’s coming along pretty nicely, huh? Should I use this one when my novel gets published? 🙂

Here is a link to my last picture, for comparison purposes.

My wife has taken to calling me Scruffy McGee and pleading with me to shave every day. I tell her I’ve come this far and can’t shave now. I’m no quitter! 🙂 The funny thing for me, not for her, is that she keeps asking people what they think of the beard and they all keep telling her they like it. My grandfather, who I though for sure would be against the beard said he liked it. This weekend, my wife’s two sisters both said they like the beard.

Plus, the Pittsburgh Penguins have done quite well in the playoffs and are up 2 games to 0 against the Philadelphia Flyers. The winner of the best of 7 series will play for the Stanley Cup!

As soon as the playoffs are over, though, I’m shaving the beard. It is just too itchy for me.
