Congrats Bama. I'm in my 21st year at the job I'm at. It takes a lot to stay in the same place as long as you have. I have the same facial hair philosophy and am the northern equivalent of redneck. A Swamp Yankee.

Congrats Bama, great milestone. I would have the facial hair if they allowed it in the oil patch.

Thanks guys. I donít know if I was smart to stay or too dumb to quit. Last place I worked for 11 years before I became self employed. Learned a lot over the years, some things I was told before I bought my first truck were true, a lot of them werenít. Made some screwups along the way, had some hard times, but wouldnít change much if I could. I have always been an independent cuss, so this lifestyle has suited me well. The company Iím with takes care of the legal stuff like highway taxes and they get the loads, I haul the product and get it there the way I want. I had several opportunities to go to other companies, but I hate to change, Iím a slave to routine. Pretty good combination, I get to do what I like and not deal with the legalities.

So now, I get to wind down a 36 year career. Really looking forward to more home time. Seems like I never have time to do my stuff because Iím doing other peoples stuff. Iíve got enough stuff to do to last a long time, and the wife keeps coming up with more!

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

Congrats on the 25 Bama. I made 30 before giving myself a break. It's been 18 years of actually accomplishing more since I retired. When they started messing with me about my similar appearance standard I let them have it. Haven't looked back.

Speaking of personal apperance... When the company I worked for announced that they were "embracing diversity in the workforce", I just said, "I can help with that." I can't grow a righteous beard, but when I retired about three years later, my hair was some of the longest in the office. Nobody said a word.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

My beard is pretty long right now, I usually shorten it up in hot weather. I’ve got a new hair dresser, she cut my hair about 15 years ago then she quit to take a post office job. Lady I started going to after her I stayed with all this time, but she is having health issues and I can’t get to her shop the two days she is open. So when I found out the other lady was back cutting hair, I went back to her. She hasn’t cut it back quite as much as I normally wear it yet.

The beard is part of me.Wife talked me into shaving it off on our 25 th anniversary, I started growing it back the next day! Other than that few days, I’ve had it since about 1985.
