Traditional Saab driver?
« on: 02 June 2020, 07:15:19 PM »
Well at the start of the lockdown, with a bit of working from home, I started to let myself go a bit.

I didn't shave, and the stubble grew. As time went on, as I threatened to tidy myself up and shave it all off, the wife and kids told me to leave it!!

Now imagine if you will, the patchy and straggly beard and moustach hair, in many areas greyer or whiter than my barnet!!!!

I've only once before tried to grow facial hair for Movember one year, but I was glad to get it off at the end of the month!! This time I have persisted for 3 months now, and one of my colleagues saw me for the first time in months online, and said I looked like Captain Birdseye :D

The question on my mind though is, do I now finally have the appearance of a traditional Saab driver? :D :D
