Blind dates and beards: one is gone forever and the other stays forever

by Ken Carpenter



Today I have a 1998 story about beards and a 2001 story about a very strange blind date.

The blind date tale is run as it was printed, and my life has changed since then. I am now married and will never have to go on another blind date. They aren’t all bad though, for my relationship with my wife Joy started off with one.

The beards story is part reflection and part history, with a little known heart about an infamous bearded fellow. Have a nice day.
