I don't know if your husbands have a similar tradition, but mine assumes that he has the right to grow a beard every year just before deer and duck hunting season. Now, if you happen to have a husband who is not interested in hunting, you may ask 'Why the Beard'... Well, he tells me it is because his face stays warmer when he is out there in the early hours of the day.
So, ok...fine...but....For my sacrifice having to put up with facial hair I should at least expect some dinner meat in the freezer? Don't you think? Well, I do.
So, this year, I have come up with a new concept and it is called "EARN A BEARD". What that means is...you get to grow a beard, if you have brought home something that can be prepared for dinner the previous year - you know, otherwise it can't be called HUNTING, can it, because then it should be called either DUCK WATCHING or DEER WATCHING, right? Well, that's just my perception, but I may find some followers who agree to this posting, who knows?
