Bill, love, marriage

Just a quick check in today…

It’s a nice Saturday, and I’m hoping to get out of the house for a little while. But it’s already just after 11:00am, which means we need to get a move on if we’re going to go anywhere or do anything.

Bill lost his brand new brown cap (pictured yesterday) while he was gone on his trip. I ordered him another one, plus one in olive, since he liked the first one so much. Maybe I should put his name in the caps, too, since it looks like someone made off with the last one. It would have been nice if the person who found it had dropped it off at the lost and found.

While Bill was away, he quit shaving. I think it was because he worked overnights, and shaving was just a chore after a night of working. He is currently sporting facial hair for the first time since 2016. Bill actually looks really good with a beard. He grew one before we went to Ireland for the first time, around the time of our 14th wedding anniversary. But I don’t really like kissing his beard, and I guess he prefers the clean shaven look. He got rid of the beard and hasn’t grown another one until now.

Last night, I joked that he looked a bit like the old cartoon character, Snuffy Smith. I used to love reading Snuffy Smith in the Sunday comics. Looking back on it, I’m not sure why I enjoyed reading the comics so much when I was a kid. It probably had to do with the colors and simple language. 😉

Looks like 8 o’clock shadow…

Bill says he’s going to make a video for younger daughter, so she can see him with a fuzzy face. After that, he’ll probably shave. Below is a photo of him with a beard, back in November 2016.

He wears it well…

Not everyone can pull off a beard. I have to admit, I think he looks debonair with facial hair, so I won’t protest if he keeps this look– even if I prefer to kiss him without the hair. It’s his face, so whatever he wants to do is up to him. I just look forward to seeing him looking a little less unkempt. A good night’s sleep has already helped, though. He was pretty tired last night.

Anyway… I know this isn’t the most exciting blog post. I don’t have time to do a deep dive. It’s Saturday, and I desperately need to get out of the house for awhile. So I think I’ll close this post and get on with the day. Enjoy your weekend!

  1. Bill looks like a writer or artist with a beard!

    I’m not surprised that someone stole his new brown cap. There are people, no matter where you live in this world, who will gladly steal something (even a hat!) if they believe they can get away with it. The same thing happened to me not long after Mom died in 2015; I wore one of my fave caps (given to me by my filmmaking partner in crime; he was a supporting cast member on Spielberg’s “War of the Worlds” movie, and he mailed it to me back in 2010 cos he knows I’m a Spielberg fan) to a restaurant. I, of course, don’t wear headgear at the table, so I placed it on the empty seat to me while I ate dinner with one of my high school classmates who was kind enough to invite me to get out of the house and socialize (I was still living mostly alone then). When we were on our way out to my friend’s car, I absent-mindedly left my cap on the empty seat, and didn’t realize it till I was about to buckle my seat belt. “Hey,” my friend said, “where’s your cap?”

    “Oh, I must have left it in the restaurant,” I replied. “On the empty seat next to mine at our table.”

    “Don’t worry, I’ll go get it,” my friend said. He walked back into the restaurant, and, after five or six minutes, came back to the car empty-handed. “Well, I asked the staff if they’d found your cap, Alex, but it looks like someone stole it, because it’s not where you said you left it.”

    Ugh. Putting Bill’s name on any nice headgear you order for him sounds like a great idea.

    I hope your Saturday is going well. Mine just started – I woke up super early (it’s almost 7 AM here), not exactly by design, so I’m off to eat a quick breakfast (cold cereal, toast, and coffee) and then decide whether I want to loaf or work on “The New Story.”
