Well, another couple of days have passed and the beard is starting to grow in nicely. But, before you take a look at the photo, here are a few beard trivia facts that you may or may not know.
– Although it was invented around 20 A.D., the beard faced near extinction for hundreds of years. It was re-discovered by Sir Phillip Beard in 1679, who brought it back with him to England, sparking new interest in “facial hair.”
– Before being rediscovered, and renamed by Beard, it was originally known as a Fitzgerald, which is where we still get the common phrase, “Hey bubby, your Fitzgerald is getting out of hand.”
– Beards produce oxygen, providing over 12% of the world’s supply.
Here is my photo for today… taken in Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World.
