For only the second time in more than forty years, I am without my Van Dyke. I had to shave in
preparation for surgery yesterday. It creeps me out to look in the mirror and see a stranger. It will grow back of course, and I do have the oxys to ease the pain in the interim.

11.  I have had a full or partial beard ever since I left the Corp.
I doubt that anybody would recognize me if I shaved it!

19. Oops-too late to edit, but just saw that the OP is from a couple of months ago,
so I assume everything went OK and you're well on the way to recovery if not even beyond that.
