    Friday shave 9/2/22. Last shave was 8/25/22 so I had plenty of beard to plow through. This Friodur was like a squeegee and gave a nice comfortable shave.

    Touron-Parisot ready to travel, but I usually stay home on holidays! Soap was La Toja lathered with a Zenith boar and a splash of Myrsol Plastic Shave finished up.

    Exactly, The Swedish language has very few words compared with many other languages. Contrary many words have several meanings depending upon the pronunciation or the context,
    Examples:

    Tomten
    Means both Santa Claus and also the yard outside the house… with a so small difference in how the “o” is pronounced.

    Bord
    Means both a table and the outside of a boat, same way to say it.

    Lager
    Means both layer and also a bearing.

    Then we have the most ultimate word:
    Lagom
    Means actually not to much, not to little just precise without precision (depending on how the person that makes the statement thinks…)

    Å
    A small river

    Ö
    A Island

    Short word’s indeed
