I’m trying a new look!


Simon 25 years agoI wondered what you thought of my new look… well really it’s an old look! I discovered this photo which was taken about 25 years ago and it really made me laugh. My friend and I were travelling round the world and during the first couple of months I didn’t shave and grew something of a beard.

It began to really irritate me and so in Hawaii I decided to shave it off. Unfortunately I only had two BIC disposable razors and no mirror so as the blades got blunter and blunter I had to just leave some bits until I could get a new blade. My friend ‘guided’ me to the finished result, which was very… Village People!

Funniest thing was, I then had to go to the shop and get a new razor and the guy who worked in the shop (who we had come to know quite well) was insistent that: "there was a bloke just like me staying at the same youth hostel – and he was Scottish too!"

What d’ya think? Should the "we want you!" look make a comeback???

    Simon, you don’t seem to have changed much in 25 years although I suspect any facial hair now might possibly have a silver tinge to it. Don’t worry, I think a good head of grey/silver hair makes a man look distinguished!

    You have definitely got better with age!

    Ahh, thank you girls! I do believe if I grew the Califonian Highway Patrol look now, I would be called Badger Boy! Perhaps the clean shaven look is best.

    HeHeHe! That pic made me think of John Conteh, who I used to think was ‘a bit of alright’! – think I prefer you now, though…
