“I've been bearded for 48 years and have had full beards, close cropped goatees and now I have a 83 month old goatee which I have had trimmed 3 times during this period.
“I enjoy all types of music from classical to blues and rock.
“I enjoy a drink of beer and am partial to real ale, and also enjoy a glass of whisky or rum. I play golf and enjoy reading when time permits.
“I have only shaved my beard off once in 48 years, and being as it was a source of merriment for my better half and children to see me beardless, started growing it back the very next day!”
