Jared's New Hair Doo

There is a constant argument in our house about Jared shaving his head BALD.  While I have always been against it, he's always told me that it would happen downrange and that there was nothing that I could do to stop him.  Don't get me wrong, I do think he looks sharp with his sides "tight" and a little hair on top.  But not BALD!

Every once in a while, he will joke around on the phone and tell me he's going to get his head shaved.  But since deployment is 8+ months over and nothing has ever happened, I figured that he had backed down.  However, a few nights ago, I logged onto Facebook before going to bed and found these pictures of Jared:
Trying the bald look for the first time. Luckily i did not cut my head shaving it the first time. I didn't have to pay a barber for this look either.

Side view. My wife said i could never do this, but I'm in Afghanistan so you can see how well I listened this time.  How many shocked reactions will i get?
While it was still a surprise, I should have known he'd eventually get around to it.  My question is, "Where is the smile to go with the new doo? "  He replied, "What is there to smile about around here?  It's dirty, it stinks, etc."   All I have to say is that it WILL be grown back out by the time he comes back home!

Now that he's done it, he says that he doesn't think he will keep it.  He likes having a little bit of hair on his head.  See, he should have listened to his wife in the first place!  lol

Mauritius - R&R 2011

I know, it happeneed almost a month ago, but for those of you STILL interested, here is how our R&R went.  My postings may be longer than many of you want to read, but I decided I was only going to write about this once.  I back posted everything to the day it happened.  So it will be lots easier to read if you start with January 10th posting and work your way to forward.  Here it goes.

For those of you that don't have time to read all of the postings, I've also created a music video.  Take a look!
