    Thanks, Jim! I will not get them until next week. Sometimes, the prices on these razors are ridiculous, but I couldn't pass this set up because the price was beyond fair for 2 shave ready razors. The seller had 3000+ reviews with a 100% rating so I feel very confident about the quality of these razors. I really only wanted to get a nice Filly and maybe a custom razor, but the asking prices are beyond ridiculous on Fillys and Customs are always expensive.

    I broke out of the routine and enjoyed a late afternoon shave with my focus gear. The C.O. Bigelow will be finished in one or two more shaves. My Bride and are joining friends for dinner. Let's see, I think they'll be here in a few minutes.

    I've had this trusty quartz Swiss Army watch for nearly 25 years. I purchased it in 1995 on a Caribbean cruise. How do I remember? Well, it was the same cruise where Tropical Depression Opal paid us a visit. Our ship actually crossed the path of the storm. The Captain said that would be the safest and most direct route to good weather. It was still daytime, and we headed into a pitch black storm. I went inside and probably ate too much ice cream to relieve the stress. Thankfully, he was correct. We stayed on the ship in Grand Cayman as they had just received 10 inches of rain. We missed another stop, and the passengers became irritated until the Captain provided everyone with free liquid refreshments. That's one sure way to prevent a mutiny. The storm later made landfall on the Florida panhandle (where we had just spent a few days vacation prior to the cruise) as a Category 4 Hurricane. It was a memorable trip, and a very unfortunate time for the good folks living on the Gulf Coast.

    Hembree Not as pretty smelling

    Been a busy day. I will be out the door in a few minutes to take mom to see dad. I just got an awesome shave in. How awesome do you ask? Let me just say that this one was in Mr. Primo mojo territory! Oh Yea! I wanted to amp the Gem/Karve shave up a little from the last shave. Easily accomplished when you substitute Stirling for Arko. Y'all have a great weekend!

    Clove is very very strong in the Ogllala line. If clove bothers you, try PAA Atomic Bay Rum. It say he uses no clove. I like the PAA too.
