Yes, this picture was taken on November 1st.
Not only is he not shaving his beard, he is not cutting his hair. I haven't fully decided if that's because he doesn't have Chloe (his trusty hair cutter at the Beauty Bar. Yes he feels weird and girly going in there, but he loves Chloe!!) and is nervous to get anyone else to do it. Needless to say we are anxious to see what he is going to look like at the end of this month. Since he doesn't have his fellow no shavers here, he tried to convince some new friends to join him. Apparently people of the Asian descent have no interest in not shaving...or maybe it's because Gary would put them all to shame with his beard. So, this year Gary grows alone in a country full of clean shaven men!!
Maybe in December we can experiment a little??
Stay tuned for the finished product!
