    Hot Water Wash, Victorian Scuttle, C.V. Heljestrand Mk4, VDH Boar, Nana June's Citrus Wake-up, Aqua Velva Classic

    I bought this Victorian scuttle several years ago in Tarpon Springs. For reasons I can't explain, it's sat quietly on the bench for a long time. I decided its time had come this morning, so I grated my remaining Citrus Wake-up into the top and took my shave outside this morning with a portable mirror. Shaving sitting down is a bit odd but I had a nice 3 pass shave just the same. The Heljestrand performing to its usual standard of excellence
    The older I get, the better I was

    I started the summer solstice off with a nice day fishing in the sun. Finished the afternoon off with a Steak on the grill (no good catch unfortunately). Moved inside for the evening and showered off the sunscreen. Decided for a quick shave and ended up having one of the best ones yet. Astringent was some Sazarac and a 2 finger pour of Thomas H. Handy. Although I think I applied it incorrectly since it went into my liver and not on the face.

    Late shave, tweaked the Grelot some, it took awhile but I think I got it nailed. The shave earlier in the day was crap. So bad that I had enough stubble to do a shave tonight. Despite the multiple passes my face was holding up well. Not really any burn when I splashed on the ASL.

    Less is more.
    From their stillness came their non-action...Doing-nothing was accompanied by the feeling of satisfaction, anxieties and troubles find no place
