When the Lenten Beard started, I knew it had to come to an end. It still made for a tough event at the end of Lent. It was sad. It was heartbreaking. And I had to name some of the pit-stops along the way. And on top of that there are creepy (and sometimes helpless looking?) faces to go with it.
This one goes out to the 8th President of the United States. Oh, Martin van Buren, you hugely sideburned man! And did you know Benjamin Harrison was the last US President to sport a beard while in office? He was the 23rd president of the United States, holding office 1889-1893. I am still reeling from the knowledge that the US had no bearded President in the 20th century. Conspiracy?
Bet you didn’t think you would get a short lesson on US Presidents.
And there it is. Good-bye, Lenten Beard. You will be missed!
