A new ride = a new mustache.
That's right, my Mr. Pilot "gets" to rock the mustache again for the Lip Jacket ritual...
Bouncing in the Growler starts right after Christmas (that is jet pilot talk for practicing to land on the ship) so all the guys start letting their mustaches grow now, just in time for Christmas pictures.
They don't get to shave again until they successfully land on the ship, at the end of January. The kids sure get a kick out of this, and some of the guys look really funny.
Mr. Pilot says pictures of awesomeness soon to follow.
