George shaved once, every year, towards the end of autumn, to remove the twiggy remains of his most unusual beard.
He didn't use any of the usual brands of razor, and instead carefully and expertly pruned his face with a pair of garden shears that had caused not a small number of nasty accidents in his younger days.
George had honed his technique since then, however, and now didn't even require the use of a mirror.
It was only now, as the Christmas season approached, that he would visit his family and friends, and allow photographs of himself to be taken.
He felt new. Refreshed. Ready to face the world.
Until the Spring.
