    Thank you, Clint! It's been nice so far, but it's going way too fast. We took Wilson bowling this morning for the first time. Had the bumpers up and he used the really light bowling ball and the toddler launching ramp. It was a lot of fun!

    Thank you, Adam!

    Thank you, Jim!

    Great shave, Andrew, and TGIF!! As Clint says, now it's officially Friday.

    @Primotenore - What lavender scented soaps and aftershaves will you rotate through this month?

    I have some Vulfix Lavender shave cream in a tub and I have the Fine Lavender in both soap and splash. The Fine version is really more peppermint with a lavender base but the Vulfix cream smells almost medicinal. It's not a favorite.

    That about sounds like the typical fair for the shoppers drug mart here also. Not the cheapest place as the jean coutu has same stuff for $1-2 cheaper per item. The wilkinson blades are ridicously priced at both places though.

    Great picture, Andrew! A day at home with the kids sure beats a day at work!

    I got to be home with my kids more than expected today to take my middle daughter to get a few stitches after a spill off the bike.

    Question: My mother-in-law has asked me to find a razor for her husband's 60th birthday... My first thought was a 1958 of some sort. Are there any particularly good razors from that time that are worth looking to get hold of? Or would a ball end tech be a good idea?

    Any input/thoughts/ideas would be gratefully received!

    A Flare Tip is always great. Of course the Fatboys were out by then as well.

    Are they pretty mild? He is a cartridge razor user, and since hearing about my shaving the mother-in-law wants her husband to shave this way too!

    The Flare Tip is mild. The Fatboy is adjustable so it goes from very mild to moderate aggressive.

    She's fine. The stitches in the chin were a little scary for her but she made it through.

    Oh man! The chin... Not a great deal of padding there! Hoping she heals quickly (children always seem to)!

    A Shick G1 or a Gem Featherweight are nice . Lots available too.
