    Ok. I'll try this again lol. Just realized I posted it in last weeks thread accidentally.

    A wonderful Saturday evening shave. Very relaxing with excellent music and the start of a hopefully relaxing two week vacation. Just as I was finishing up my third pass my wife came in, kissed the back of my neck and whispered "I love you" in my ear for no apparent reason. A shave just doesn't get much better than that.

    This was the first time shaving with my Bill Ellis 12/8 in quite a while. I think she will always be my favorite. A very sentimental item of mine. Air Coder honed her up for me perfectly!!!

    My five days of growth was just getting too irritating this afternoon so I had a spontaneous mid afternoon shave.
    The Invicta is one of my best shavers and delivered an amazing 2 pass BBS.
