SOTD "Free Week" 16-22 March 2015

Not open for further replies.

This week is a "free" week, where you are encouraged to post whatever strikes your fancy. I always look forward to the creativity on display here each week.

Next week's theme is going to be "Shaving on a Budget". The object will be to show the best shave you can get while keeping the cost down. Lowering the expenses of shaving led many of us to B&B, and I think that new members could learn a lot by seeing what inexpensive products work for us.

My shave today, while excellent, won't be an example for next week's thread:
