I met Roger on a recent fishing trip in the White Mountains. He told me he was a long haul trucker, who escorted NASCAR great Jeff Gordon around the country for 11 years, before he was fired out of jealousy, because his mustache pulled more tail than Gordon. Roger's next career move was hauling loads for the Barnum-Bailey Circus, where he met the love of his life, The Bearded Lady. The two were married 3 days later, and as they were taking off for their honeymoon Roger backed his 18 wheeler over her, grinding her whiskers into the pavement and killing her. Roger said he and his mustache now live up in the mountains, isolated, and living off the land for fear of ever hurting the ones they love again.
