Do you ever wonder if your parents are starting to lose it? My Dad (who is turning 70 this year) recently started sporting an Amish beard. !!!!!!! My sister and I were discussing his stupid beard, both of us being MORTIFIED by this beard, as our family is not Amish. I think the Amish beard is quite possibly the most unattractive of the male facial hair options. I told my sister that I couldn't believe our Mom hadn't pitched a fit about the hideous beard, and my sister said my Mom certainly HAD pitched a fit about the beard, and that was precisely why my Dad hadn't shaved it off. HA!!!!!
