Torn on shaving

Argh... I think just about every day I say that I'm going to shave my beard off...... tomorrow.

The last time I shaved was Nov. 2, 2012. That was the day I turned 50. I was going to try to go one year without shaving - though I didn't really expect to. I've actually trimmed it a couple times, but not a lot (mostly the sides and the mustache part).

I can't decide if I should shave it off or let it grow. Part of me is really tired of taking care of it. It's kind of a pain. I have to wash it and blow it dry and comb it. Plus there is always the chance of getting food stuck in it. But on the other hand... the wife and grandkids like it; and I've always wanted to have a long beard.

I have to say, I have a lot of admiration for guys with really long beards. It is a lot of work.

So, I don't know. I was planning to shave it off today. I took these pictures for a keepsake. But now I am torn again.
