Today we lost one of the members of our party. My beard. It was a hard decision, but his lack of pedaling ability and knack for disgusting Sarah outweighed his ability to keep my face warm, so we decided to part ways.

Here is a little photo montage of the good times we had together.

Mugshot-esque photo for documentary purposes:

Absorbing a little New Zealand history together:

Basking in the sun and taking in the scenery:

Side shot to display extraordinary puffiness:

Beard + gobs of sunscreen = great times

    This is brilliant. You look good all cleaned up, yo!

    The before and after photos are brilliant indeed! That was one fine beard Jamie. All in all you clean up extraordinarily well. There is a handsome young lad under all that hair. Beards come and go but Jamie; you will always be timeless in your humor and good nature. Safe travels to your new destination. God speed. Middle English: God spede (you). May God prosper (you)

    And so, let this be the end of The Fellowship of the Beard.

    Sans beard you’re so skinny. Are you eating? No worries, Robby (formerly known as Robo) is eating for two. We think he’s pregnant.

    Har har. That’s the funniest thing I’ve seen all day and very possibly all week. Perhaps even all month.

    Enjoy the easy life for a bit.
