Words fail me. I can't imagine what you're going through at this time.
I wish you well as you deal with this sad situation.
Shave of the week: 15 March through 21 March 2020
Back on track for S of the W (I think) so here's what is up for next week:
Hybrid razor = EJ head/Scotch & Stowe handle
Vie-Long Silver Tip brush
Viking "Citron" SS
Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe & Viking "Citron" balm
I like all the individual parts and hope they all like each other. We'll soon find out.
My shave for this week: 22 March through 28 March 2020
Soap: RazoRock Don Marco
Brush: Semogue 620 boar
Razor: Fatip Grande
Blade: Gillette 7 O'Clock (1 - 7)
Aftershave: RazoRock Don Marco
Had a rough weekend in the hospital, found out I have an ulcer on my colon. Not sure if it's cancer or not, waiting for biopsy. Regardless, going to have to have surgery and that sucks.
But my Shave of the Week will be:
Gillette New razor (short comb)
Astra SP blade
JR #85 brush
Zangari Man "The Wanderer" Shave Soap
Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
The Zangari Man is new so I chose other tried and tested items to eliminate any problems. Looking forward to this. The scent of the SS is marvelous and I'll keep ya'll posted.
Man, you're being asked to carry some serious weight. All the best with the outcome(s).
Yeah, things are a little rough right now. Fortunately I have my 4 children very close by and they are all wanting to help in any manner needed. Blessed that way.
Dude, you let us know how it goes. Might not be anything we can do for you physically, but we're here if you need someone to chit chat with.
Thanks y'all. Like I said, a little rough right now. And with this corona virus thing going on it's nice to have a place to go.
Sorry to hear that. I had pretty much the same problem about 18 years ago. I'll be praying for you.
Here's praying I get another number of years. Got a great-granddaughter I want to see graduate from college. That's at least 20 years from now
I didn't even have kids when I went through it. I have 4 now.
So life is good for you and I'm glad
Just received the TAR razor pair in the pass around going on now. So I will stop my SotW and start using these 2 razors tomorrow.
Mostly satisfying, BBS shaves with this gear. It seemed like the blade was beginning to fail on Thursday's shave so I replaced it for Friday & today. I'd not had that happen in years with those blades as I change out blades every Saturday and am good to go for the week. Finished up the week with 2 nice shaves.
The RR Don Marco soap and AS splash have a delightful scent that is long lasting. As with all RR soaps, the performance is top notch.
I haven't picked next week's line-up yet but will post tomorrow morning.
SotW (29 March thru 05 April 2020)
Figured that while under "House Arrest" I'd use my strongest scented soap and aftershave splash this week.
Deeeelightful! Two pass, minor touch-up, BBS shave this AM.
Soap: RazoRock Tuscan Oud
Brush: Omega 10065 synthetic
Razor: Fatip Grande
Blade: Personna red (1-7)
Aftershave: Pinaud Clubman Special Reserve
Nice choices there.
Thanks Paul! Should be a fine week....of shaving that is.
