I had a devil of a time uploading this picture, something is hindering the upload. I got it on the fifth try. I can’t tell if it’s my ISP (which has been acting suspicious lately) or something wrong with WordPress.
At any rate, this is a selfie I took today just to show how far I’ve gotten with the beard. The last time I tried it, the itching was to the point of being painful. So this time I changed the type of soap I use. It’s Mrs. Meyers Body Wash; it doesn’t dry things out so bad. Also, after washing I rub in a mixture of olive and coconut oil. I mix the two oils half-n-half and heat them just a little until the coconut dissolves into the olive oil. It will stay liquid after that. We’ll see if I can grow hair on the top at all.
