The Deliberate Agrarian points to some sermons by Michael Bunker in which he makes the Biblical case for wearing beards. Now before you scoff recall it isn’t hard to make the case for head coverings (see my post here on that sticky subject), Michael might have a pretty good argument.
Well I don’t need convincing because I just bought this book by Dick Fegy. My flatpicking has improved but more importantly the picture of Dick on the cover brought back a lot of memories and has inspired me. I grew up in the 70’s and a number of important men in my life wore beards and on occasion smoked a pipe. I am all for more beard, I have some already, but I need a pipe, I long for the smell of pipe smoke wafting through my beard.
