This: I have had some sort of facial hair (mostly this, but a goat as well at times) since October 1981 - except for about 3 days. Once I cut it off because my wife had never seen me without it except in a photograph. She just said "grow it back" so I did. Did the same thing one other time when we went to see her family-two days that time might be pushing it. Both were in the 1980's. Probably mid 80's.
