Seasonal beard

I grow a full beard except for my lower neck for the Wisconsin archery season. We close up deer camp before the gun season so by mid November it comes off. By that time I’ve had enough of my beard and so has my wife. It’s not much fun shaving when all I’m going after is my lower neck and upper cheek bones. I never imagined I would enjoy shaving some day and miss my daily shave. 3EC87542-F7AC-4E63-8AF1-6A52FDF8B102.jpegI’ve aged since my thumbnail photo was taken.
 
I normally sport a goatee mowed down to about 1/8 inch every other day. I wanted to shave that off under protest by my wife. I figured I’m missing more of the fun by not shaving my chin and under my nose. I’ve always been a wet shaver of sorts. ( gel and multi blade razors)
With all the DE blades and razors available what’s not to like? Not to mention all the soaps, aftershaves, balms and brushes to try.
 
I've been DE shaving since 2014. I have rarely skipped a shave in that time.
Recently I came down with Covid and I went a week, then shaved and then went another week without shaving.
I thought that I looked like a hobo.
I now have pneumonia, and I still don't feel like shaving but; I feel better after I do!
Now, I shave every few days. I'll be so glad when I can get back to normal.

Brother, I pray you get well soon.

I had Covid in the late winter/early spring. Not fun. And right now is the first day in a week that I have not had a strong suspicion that I had pleurisy. Or chostocondritis again. Ugh.

My theory is that every time I am exposed to Covid my body kicks in the immune response, and I feel like garbage for a bit.

But a good friend is presently on a ventilator fighting for what life he will have after it's done. But short of a miracle, he's just waiting on God right now. Ugh.

So get better soon, @modyblu !

If I looked that good with a beard I'd do one of two things:

Hunt deer year round, or become a Santa for rent.
