Well, I finally did it — I cut off my beard-braids. Or rather, three raffle-winners came up to cut them off at a fundraiser (a “Fun-Razor”!) we held at Art by Inna in Murrieta. My fiancée was never fond of the longer beard, so it made sense to let them go and return to my old, shorter beard. The event itself was fantastic, with a large turn-out, and excellent management by the “Fab Four” event planners from Temecula Valley Democrats. Carl Kravats took a lot of great photos, and we shot a video of both Bill Jubran’s comedy set and the beard-shearing festivities. When time permits, I will get that video uploaded to YouTube and update this post with a link. For now, here is a group photo taken at the end of the night.
