Goatee or no Goatee


Ok here's one of those major decisions a retired person must make along with what to eat for lunch, Goatee or No Goatee. After 35 years of clean shaving every day in the Police Department,and five years before that in the military resulting in rashes and razor burns just to adhere to the simple rules and regulation of those departments to keep the supervisors happy , I must make the decision on should I look like a retired cop or should I let my hair down and be a regular joe. My Anna seems to like it and most feedback from family and friends seem to be positive. I think I like it and will keep it, I will try different looks like soul patch, no soul patch, chin hair, no chin hair that I am growing as I speak...

NO Goatee

Well Harry, I grew my "stash" 21 during my last days in the AF....I only shaved it off 2 times in the 37 years since...I donned a Goatee from 1998 thru early 2008....before going back to the Mustache only, I still feel kind of "Neckid" without the Goat....but while donning my umpire mask, it is much easier.

Keep Plugging Along...I will add you to my "favorites" list on my blog, and that should get you a few visits.



PS...Check out that photo of you and me on my blog(the one you sent me)....Hell I don't think we have change much at all in 40 years....LOL!

No goatee, yuck! It makes you look MUCH older!!! I didn't recognize you at first.

Love your Baby Sister!

PS...this is what happens when you invite family to your blog!


Hi, Harry here, welcome to my Blog. I'm a bit illiterate when it comes to spelling and typing but I am learning every day and with the help of my beautiful wife of 43 years Anna, I am getting better at it. I am a retired Philadelphia Police Officer but seem to be busier than ever trying to get things done I couldn't get to for thirtyfive years. I never know when I can get to my blog but I will make an effort to get it done at least two or three times a week. I am sure some will like it and some will fined it ridiculous but thats ok. Well welcome and I hope you enjoy......
