My excuse to talk about Magnum, P.I.

I’m happy to welcome in the month of April. This month will bring signs of spring. But, more importantly, it will bring an end the to the torturous “Moustache March,” a terrible tradition among some military men to sport bushy moustaches on their otherwise nicely clean-shaven faces.

Thankfully, Husband did not participate in this tradition. Our neighbor, unfortunately, did. I’m sure this neighbor has a very nice face, but it’s hard to tell, since we’ve only seen him with an outrageous moustache. Same goes for the male church-goers we’ve seen on Sunday at the base chapel.

I’m not against moustaches. Just look at Tom Selleck (aka Magnum, P.I.) Never has a moustache – or a Hawaiian shirt – looked finer.

Maybe I just have a thing for Magnum, P.I. (It’s my dad’s fault for showing me so many episodes of the show when I was a kid.)

Hypothetically speaking, I might have made Husband take a picture of me in front of a “Magnum, P.I” poster when we were in Hawaii. And, he might have complied, after asking repeatedly if it was really necessary. (Of course, it was! Hypothetically, that is.*)

Anyway, so let me be the first to wish you a Happy Moustache-Free April! Unless you are Tom Selleck. In that case, please keep that healthy moustache in April and beyond – and please reconsider my autograph requests.**

* Ok, so it all really happened. I’ll understand if you stop reading my blog.
**I did not really ask Tom Selleck for his autograph, but perhaps I should.

This is kind of funny. By the way, I started running again after a way too long break. Hope yours is going great.

I've never heard of this! DH can only not shave when he's on the submarine. I have yet to see a picture of this, either, because last time I sent him with a disposable camera and, although he took the whole roll of film, he never used the flash...Next time he goes with a digital.
