The beard is its own person, we are merely its life support.

I am bearded country fella from the Carolina’s. I work as a wildland firefighter. In this job, beards are the norm. I am an avid sports fan. As a graduate of the University of North Carolina, I am a die hard Tar Heel. Born and raised in the South; hunting, fishing, cooking, and anything outdoors.

My intrigue with beards began when I first saw the movie Jeremiah Johnson in the 8th grade. Yeah, I know, damn shame no one showed me that movie before then. It wasn’t until after I finished college that I decided to grow a beard. There was a lot of opposition from family and friends, which drove my desire to actually “grow” a beard. In 2007, began my career in wildland fire. This is where my love and embrace for my beard took an unmovable foothold. This, is when I decided to be the beard.

I have a beautiful, awesome understanding wife, Sara. She birthed our beautiful daughter Audrey. Besides the quasi unibrow, Audrey is the spitting image of her mother. She gets the brow from me. They both embrace my beard, even though Sara let’s me know when there is too much to embrace.

On May 1, 2014 we welcomed the little Beardlet Carter Oliver Roberts.  Our first boy.  Happy to have someone I can teach how to pee outside.  Good times shall ensue.

I will write about whatever interest me. I will strive to be entertaining and funny. My mother is an English teacher, so at times I will purposely butcher English grammar for comical intent. I hope you enjoy the blog and all my musings. I encourage commenting and banter!

Awesome is bearded! No Shave Never!

    Thanks so much hoss! The only inability disabling you from growing your beard is the ability to shave. Throw the razors away, let it grow

    Best way to grow a beard is to quit shaving. A buddy of mine had to google it to find that out. I saved you some time

    No SHave Never

    Thanks for reading. Eviction for house finches is useless. They will always come back to squat.

    I’ve had a beard for 40 yrs now. Used to be long and bushy until I had to evict a couple of house finches building a nest in it. :wink: Now I wear it much shorter
