Hey guys i have been really slack with the Journal... We have had a few dramas here but things are generally good but I have been active in the Great Southern Lands board doing Steward stuff.... trying to get conversations going, leading threads go totally off topic .... usual stuff.
Drop in and say "Hi..” we love visitors..... There is alway room and a chair by the open fire... Just between the Taniwha and the Bunyip ... just keep an eye on the Drop Bear, he is up in the rafters somewhere and he bites..... and will also pinch you beer if you put it down.
I have been shaving with loads of different gear that was in the Aussie Pass Around box and had some amazing shaves.
Today’s shave was Proraso Red Shave Cream and Preshave with a Proraso Blue Aftershave Balm chaser... it was lovely.
I am still really digging my 1920’s Gillette Old Type Open Comb with w Perma Sharp Blade .... The best most consistent shaves I have ever had.
The drama that we have had is that a few weeks ago our 2 year old Doberman Grimm turned on and nipped my 9 year old daughter, It wasn’t a Put to Sleep offence (it was close) but on advice from our trainer and breeder we rehomed him (with full discloser) to an amazing couple who can’t have kids and are into IPO training and sheep herding and live on a farm. Grimm gets on amazingly well with their Shepard so in the end it worked out really well as he will be getting the training and exercise he needs and that I couldn’t give him recently.... So we are all rather sad about it... but is was an answer to prayer. If Grimm does well he will be competing all over Australia..
Many years ago we had King Charles Cavaliers so we got one of them and my wife surprising us all yesterday with this wee guy Maestro.... who is 8 weeks old sleeps through the night and hasn’t so far pooped or wee’d inside... also an answer to prayer... my daughters...
Oh almost forgot apart form the occasion sore day where i can work form home I have been pretty good the last week or so.
I have been dreading the after affects of this but I have been assured that because I was one of the lucky ones that pulled up a bit rough after the first one. The surgeons will handle me a bit different this time.
1 in 1000 (that makes me special) have issues for as long as I did. Most guys get over it in less than two weeks.
Also my youngest daughter now knows about the cancer so she is chill about it so that's a relief.
Any hoo ... not being allowed to eat makes me super hungry even tho sometimes I skip breakfast... go figure.
I also get to spend the afternoon with my wonderful daughter In law Jess who will be picking me up.
And I always feel pretty good straight after a general anaesthetic ... Saturday I will possibly feel crap but I get pampered for the next few days.
Today I think I will shave with the St Charles Check 6 soap as thats exactly what the team at the hospital will be doing. [emoji15]
Oh well better get back to bed I have had my antibiotics and my tiny glass of water
See ya on the flip side. [emoji854][emoji106][emoji1604]
Reporting in the day after ... virtually no side affects this time I am a bit tender but no blood where it should t be.
So thanks God and you guys for upholding me in prayer and good thoughts. It has paid off... [emoji106][emoji1604][emoji1604]
On a side note it was Fathers Day here recently and I was given $50 and I was going to buy a heap of soap but I brought this Zenith 28mm Boar Brush it's a special order. I am looking forward to receiving it.
It's model name is Big Scrubby
