Beards and Baseball…Life is Good!


I have a new article on Squidoo

Me in my temporary splint the day after the accidentYou may have noticed that I have a beard.  I like beards.  I’ve had a beard since the day I graduated high school.  Literally, the very first day is when I started growing my beard.

Only once, when I really desperately needed a job which required me to shave my beard did I shave the beard.  But as soon as I found work elsewhere, the beard came back.  Needless to say I wasn’t at that particular job long.  I hated not having a beard.

Something else that I may not have mentioned… I like baseball.  I’m not a baseball nut or anything but I enjoy watching the game on TV and baseball is one of the very few sports that I enjoy going to the actual event to see in person.  I’ve even gone to a couple of college games.

Of course we’re talking men’s baseball.  Not so much into the ladies baseball.  Go figure.  😉

Beards and Baseball…

Jayson WerthI was watching a St Louis Cardinals game the other day and I asked my roommate “Is it just me or is there a LOT of beards on these guys?”   So I googled it.  And I’m not imagining it.  For whatever reason, baseball seems to have gone furry!  Oh my!  This is a very good thing!  Very good!

So without further ado, I bring you my latest Squidoo Article:

“Have You Noticed All the Beards in Baseball?

See ya on the dance floor!

A Man’s Waistline(s)


Once upon a time, I used to have a 28″ waist. Of course that was waaaaaaaay back in my high school days. Now my waistline is considerably larger than 28″ inches. In fact I refuse to divulge it until I’ve lost a few of those inches! So there!

But since we’re talking about waist lines, it is not widely known, but there are actually three waist lines on a man who is out of shape…

A Man's Waistlines ©Waistline No. 1 — Pants size

This is the waist size of the pants which a man wears. However, as anyone who has ever bought pants for their husband, boyfriend or significant other knows, the inches listed on the label bear no relation to what the man’s actual waist size may be, especially if he has *ahem* a “well rounded figure.”

Indeed if he suffers from Dunlap’s Disease, where his belly dun lapped over his pants, the pants size may be significantly smaller than his actual waist.
