Shorter handle with a lot of grip makes the shave more enjoyable. Berkeley 46 is an amazing little brush produced a very good lather with wilkinson. Lanolin and tallow combined wilkinson is a very good choice for a slick lather.
I played it a lot back in the day. When I saw the remake, I had to buy one to play with my kids! I always bring it on trips to play during quick breaks. BTW, dig the Avatar. I grew up on the east coast and a Yankee fan. Too bad they were bumped this year. My wife and I were married 27 years ago on October 15. During our first anniversary we went on a trip up to Mackinaw Island in northern Michigan for the fall colors and I got her interested in the Yankees as I watched them make their first return to the post season against the Mariners in 1995. Every year we would go up afterward and were lucky to watch the boys in many post season games. Once our kids were born and started to get older, we kind of stopped going every year and the Yankees stopped going to the post season every year. Now that my youngest is a sophomore in HS, we need to start going back and the Yankees need to start winning again. Have a great day.
Steve that’s a great story! Happy Anniversary!!
The Yankees are my team. Championships are super hard to come by but I’m glad that they’re consistently competitive. They have some things to address in the off-season so I’m confident they’ll contend again next season.
Take care and have a great evening!
