More mojo for Movember

I don't quote English proverbs very often, but I found one I like:
"A man without a moustache is like a cup of tea without sugar."

And since I consider myself to be a Buddhist, here's something my favorite Thai Buddhist, Ajahn Chah, once wrote:
"Looking for peace is like looking for a turtle with a moustache - you won't be able to find it. But when your heart is ready, peace will come looking for you."

Y'all might recall a little over a month
ago, I told you about my Uncle Matthew's plan to grow a moustache as part of a fund-raising program for the Movember Foundation. Recently, Mattie emailed me a picture of how far along he is with his moustache endeavor. For your viewing pleasure, I put his latest photo alongside a picture of what he looked like before he started growing his 'stache. As you can see, he has quite a baby face underneath that facial hair.

About This Blog

THE SAHD CLUB - A rip-off of the letter written by the kids from the 1980's blockbuster hit, The Breakfast Club.
