  Movember - Day 1

Just in case anyone asks, I shaved this morning. Got a little 5 o'clock shadow going already.



Just FYI:

During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men's faces, in Canada and around the world. With their "Mo's", these men raise vital funds and awareness for men's health, specifically prostate cancer.

On Movember 1st, guys register at Movember.com with a clean-shaven face. For the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts.

Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November. Through their actions and words, they raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men's health.

My donation page is at http://mobro.co/dmckee. If you like to donate to a good cause, this is one which satisfies your need for philanthropy as well as your need to see me in an awesome moustache.

If you'd also like to get involved, sign up with my team, the McMoBros. There's still time.

I'm just thinking out loud here. Cat's eating all she can and it *still* isn't enough.




  Some Nice Riding Weather

Well, no, not today. But earlier on, it was really great weather for the bike. Everything seems to be running smoothly; all I need are some new tires.




  The Cat's in Charge

What is it about cats wanting to be in the highest spot in the room?



  Cold Cat

Mini was outside today, and got to see how cold snow is.



  Kill the Beard #10

Last (and least), the Chaplin/Hitler/Hardy. Kept this one just long enough to take the picture.



  Kill the Beard #9

Very close to a 'Poirot,' but needs some wax, and maybe a twist.



  Kill the Beard #8

I like to call this one 'The Higgins'.



  Kill the Beard #7

Ladies and gentlemen, the Honourable Jack Layton.



  Kill the Beard #6

Down to the redneck/gay biker 'stache. Good to know I can pull this off, but it may have to stay on my face until Sunday.

R said this was the worst look yet. But if I shave any more, it'll end up disappearing completely.

I might still be able to do the Magnum P.I., and the John Locke. Maybe even the Hercule Poirot. Stay tuned.



  Kill the Beard #5

Interesting. A little Ra's al Ghul perhaps. Might make an interesting Halloween costume.



  Kill the Beard #4

The magician? Not bad. Not good. R doesn't like the look, so I need to go further with the trimming.



  Some Ugly Mugs

Figured this would make a good intermission from the other ugly mugs on here.



  Kill the Beard #3

Left the sideburns on. Not particularly thrilled with this hipster-biker look.



  Kill the Beard #2

Cheeks cleared. Still a ways to go.



  Kill the beard #1

Movember draws to a close, and I'm attending a wrap-up party. Even though I didn't build the beard expressly for Mov., I will be donating part of the proceeds of the silent auction to Prostate Canada, so I feel like I need to be in moustache mode. So, over the course of the week, I'm whittling down the foodcatcher to a more Movember-friendly lip lid.

Here's the starting product.


  Eye Doctor

A little wobbly right now. Doc put too much of the dilation drops in my left eye. Now everyone I talk to thinks I've been hit in the head with a piece of pipe.


  Shhhhhh

Cat is hiding.




  Sea Captain

Actually, my costume personna tonight is Midshipman Tobias Ferdinand Crunch. But one day, I'll be a Cap'n.



  It's Thursday

I'm at Coffee Culture, with a cup of dark roast. Going to do some writing today.



  Down to one bowl

Athena passed away yesterday. I'd say more, but there's something in my eye.



  Snowboarding Lesson #2

Instructor says I'm a damn speed demon. But it's so much fun going fast.



  New Roof

Getting a new roof for the old homestead, along with some useful maintenance information which the previous owners obviously never heard.

  Cat Train

Ok, so it's maybe only a two-cat cat train, but at least the cat with the big caboose is at the back.


Friday Cat in Sink Blogging - Uploaded by Zuckervati.

Found this little furball clogging up the sink this morning.

  New Heating Pad

Bought a new heating pad for the cats. Figured it would be good for them in the colder weather.

Honestly, I don't think they like it. I wonder if I can get them to share.


About Me

I suppose if you've been reading my site for any length of time, you're probably curious to know who the blogger is, and why he hasn't posted in such a long time. Is he dead? Busy? Lazy? What's his...
