    Monday, September 5. Good Morning!

    Have no idea why I'm up this early on a holiday, but I am. Nothing better to do this time of morning so might as well shave. That will sure wake you up.

    And, I don't own an adjustable razor to show. I am a creature of habit, so what you see everyday is pretty much what I have.

    Morning Coffee: Hills Brothers
    Prep: Hot shower, wash face with Musgo Glyce Lime then hot towel with Proraso Pre Shave Cream
    Razor: Edwin Jagger DE87
    Blade: Feather
    Cream: Proraso
    Brush: D.R. Harris
    Post: Cold water rinse followed by some Speick After Shave Lotion

    Have a GREAT day.

    Footnote: When you are retired, everyday is a holiday. So, I have absolutely no excuse for being
    up at 4:30 in the morning other than old age is creeping in.

    Menthol Monday:

    Omega Wooden Handle
    Super Speed/Personna day 6
    Noxzema SC :love029::happy108::happy108::smiley freezing:
    Keri unscented moisturizer
    Pinaud Bay Rum AS :love029::love029::love029::love029:

    I admit that today my shave was not the most mentholated, but it's because I was more interested in an "old-school" barbershop set-up from the 1950's or 60's. The Noxzema cream, which I love so much gave me the lather, scent, and still enough of a cooling effect that I like. The Pinaud Bay Rum is one of the few barbershop aftershaves which my wife likes! ;):biggrin:

    Coffee: BJs Kenya AA, BLACK
    Cream: Brut Classic + 3 drops M Bomb
    Brush: The Dridecker

    So, I like Brut.
    Fantastic shave today. I don't say it often, probably because my standards are high and it doesn't happen often, but this was a BBS shave. Simply FANTASTIC. The Brut was nice, too;)

    To start adjustable week I chose my father in law's 1960 Fat Boy set at 9 and loaded with a Treet Dura Sharp blade. First time use of the Dura Sharp blade and I'm very impressed with it.

    Followed it up with a healthy splash of Aqua Velva.

    I have not used Osage Rub in years. That is a pretty good description on the label " Invigorating Splash".

    I think your Viking Sensitive cream is from Bulgaria, yes? I have the version from Russia, which is marvellous. (Lots of menthol) Here is a photo of it.

    Heyyyyyyyyy, you once sent to me a tube of the older Viking stuff. The Blue Ice cream in the tube wearing the denim shirt, with the matching aftershave balsam. That was from Bulgaria, and very good. I still say the Russian version is WUNDERBAR!
