Changes are Comin' (I Hope)

I reckon I will have to change my profile photo.
Went in this evening and trimmed off my beard. Gotta clean up for a job interview on Wed. morn.
I reckon it's short enough. I think I scared the lady when I walked in her office and handed her my resume and application.
I hope it pans out.

How could you scare anyone, Hoot? Loved your beard!

Good luck with your interview!

Can you change your name to Richardson and be the long lost Duck Dynasty relative?

Hoot, wishing you all the luck in the world for your interview

What is the position you are going for?

You would look great with a long beard or a short one, dont you worry about that...although it must feel a bit strange for you after having it so long for a big amount of time

Obviously you are not applying for a position as ZZ Top's road manager then.

Good luck.

Hoot,

Shaving seems pretty drastic for a job, for your sweetie maybe, but for a job!

I wish you the best of luck!

Thanks, everyone!
The fact is that I have been unemployed since 2010. Went back to school and have graduated with an associate degree in Information Technology.
The next county over is looking for an IT coordinator. I reckon I coulda left my beard, but seein's as I am nearly 60 years old, I figger I need any edge I can get to compete for this job.
As it is county government, I 'spect I should look as much as I can like a professional.
We will see how it goes. I am optimistic about my chances.
Thanks again and I will let y'all know what happens.
