@JAHE sorry for your loss. I'm glad that being part of this group has helped a bit.
With today being the last day of January my first GRUME comes to an end. I believe that I may make it an every other month endeavor to take part in this event. This allowing myself an opportunity for a few indulgences along the way this year.
Preshave: Cremo daily face wash.
Brush: Shavemac Beagle fan.
Shaving cream: TOBS Eton College.
Blade: Dorco Prime Platinum (5).
Razor: ATT Windsor CR plate.
Excellent shave to finish the month. Smooth two pass.
I may take the opportunity to thank everyone who got back to me here and with pm. Your heart-warming messages have given me a lot of strength. This is another proof that B&B is a very special place.
