    A couple hours honing and my arm is bbs... the beer and lack of stubble on my face has convinced my that only my arm gets shaved today.

    Great posts everyone!

    I know what you mean. Not many people have a folder called 'shaving related stuff' and 'SOTD'. Sometime when SWMBO comes home to find creams and aftershaves and a razor all arrayed on the dinign room table with me bent over it all with my digital camera she just sighs and says "for GOODness SAKES..."

    LOL yeah. I usually take my photos in the bathroom, mainly because it has the best light in the apartment. But the camera actually belongs to SWMBO. I try to get her to help me pick which shot is the best one, at which point she rolls her eyes and says "yeah, that one" without really looking. I have a folder called "shaving" on my computer which already has "daily shaves", "brushes", "gear", "razors", "scales", "sharpening", "strop sanding" and "other". Does this mean I have a problem?

    Results: As some of you guys may know, back in February I wrecked my foot and suffered 25 fractures in it. My surgeons told me that I would never be able to run again. Well, yesterday I stepped up on my treadmill. Six kilometers later, my surgeons were proven wrong What a great feeling to get a proper run in! I'll be pacing myself, but now my lost goals seem achievable once again. A celebratory shave today completes my perfect weekend
    Have a great week guys!!

    Good job on proving them wrong, I've been there. It's good to see that you've re-gained function of your foot. Good luck finishing the healing process! BTW, beautiful razor.

    Razor: Boker Red Injun 102
    Brush: VDH Boar

    Psssst! They're called SWMBO's 'round here! I think it's like a 'manly man' thing, you know, like when we all get together and complain about lack of sex and beer and scratch our genitals while chewing baccy, honing razors and rebuilding big block Chevys....
