Northern Beard

In the marvellous city of Manchester up in the Northern Quarter you'll find this beard (Andy) working at Trof... it's been a 5 year effort and frankly a worthwhile one! What a fine beard served me my Sunday Brunch this last weekend... thanks for sharing Andy :))

why do i love beards?

i thought it was only after bearing witness to the fabulous 2007 World Beard and Moustache Championship that my beardy love was born but in fact in 1983 my dad sported this fine gingery beard! :D and what fabulous evidence is this??? NOW we can all see why I love beards! ;)

musical beards

this weekend I treated my ears to Threshold Festival in Liverpool... I cannot tell you exactly how many beards I spotted in all - just too many! but I pinned this couple of muso types (Ronan and Sam to be specific about it) for a double beardy pictorial... they later performed a sterling set at a freezing cold New Picket in their band*, which I'd plug but is yet to be officially titled! But search for Ronan Boyle Music and you'll find them :)

*I must mention that they have a non-beardy member called Anthony but what he lacks in beard he makes up for with proper rock hair ;)

fresh crop

This is Mark. He has his beard in a wee beardy ponytail (that doesn't feel like the right word and yet there it is...) to 'protect people from the beard' but I asked if I could see the beard in its full glory and he obliged kindly... but not after him and his pal did a little bit of fluffing and preening to try and get rid of the wrinkle caused by the beard-band...
This entry has to be my best beard blog experience so far.. not only did I get beard fluffing but Mark's friend asked me why I beard blog.. a fair enough question..
And let me tell you too... I went along to the 2007 World Beard & Moustache Championships in Brighton and had such a great day I started taking pics of lovely beards while out and about purely for my own enjoyment... my friends got wind and said really I should share my beardy pics.. and so this blog was born... I didn't really take much notice of it for a while there but now it's my favourite pastime for 2012! #whoknew as they might say on Twitter ;)
