    Probably TMI but......
    22 years ago, I went through a divorce, bankruptcy, all the terrible stuff, had a the clothes and belongings that would fit in a 10 year old Ford Escort wagon.
    I decided my life up to that point was not what I liked and set out to start from scratch, a complete do over, down to the people I hung around with. If they were a negative influence, they were, well less visited.
    I looked in the mirror and tried to the best of my ability to figure me out. Just how did I get here and how can I stop a repeat.
    Well....
    22 years later I went from a rough marriage to a wife that loves me till the end of time. 22 years later I went from working 2 yes, 2 full time jobs just to make ends meet to one job that pays well and have been able to change it into a great job. 22 years later I went from living in town on a small lot that I could barely afford to 45 acres of woods, streams and a hunters delight. 22 years later I have 2 daughters 3 wonderful grand children, 2 of which stayed the nigh. My house and property is payed off, A pick-up truck, 3 cars, a travel trailer, a new tractor with back hoe and all the implements.....
    I could go on but I think you get the point.
    When I said go for it..
    This is what I meant!
    Go for it!

    Let’s do it! Maybe we could meet in Cullman. Or we could go to Ardmore and visit Soap Commander. Ardmore is close to Huntsville.

    Good morning guys!
    Shavette Shave #99
    Dovo Shavette
    Polsilver 1/2 Blade (1)
    Semogue OC Super Badger
    Stirling Satsuma SS and AS
    Clubman Styptic Pencil
    Well, I decided to make it a Stirling Satsuma Sunday Shave. Bloomed the soap and used the water as a preshave. Built up a nice, wet, slick lather with the Semogue. Put in a new, different blade in my shavette. Now, I learned not to go for BBS with a new blade, but I decided to live on the edge, pun intended. Two and a half passes gave me a smooth, comfortable BBS. I didn't have any irritation, but a very tiny weeper appeared. It disappeared on its own on my second pass, but decided to use Clubman styptic just in case. Topped the shave with the matching aftershave. Have a great Sunday fellas! 20190825_091351.jpg 20190825_091351.jpg
