what was I THINKING?!

In 1993 I started growing a 'stache, which I wore for ten years (surprising the happy wife who had never said anything against it, but….).
I grew this thing because I was about to start teaching high school, and even though I was nearly 30, looked younger than the students.  Plus I had loved Magnum PI when I was a kid.  This pic was taken outside one of the dorms we lived in while teaching (it was a boarding school) and was posted in the yearbook…which I happened to be faculty advisor for.  Petey is our little dog there, Jack the lab….this pic from 1996.

Feast your eyes on a couple of my pigs and planes, cute, eh?

Is a mustache for men the 902 equivalent of big hair for women?

My brother in law had the big "stache" for many years, can't remember when he ditched it.
