    Hello kiruiz,
    Thanks for the kind words. No, I still shave with the straight, although, because of the current arthritis problem with my hands, it is on the weekends and usually one pass with the grain, two the most, finishing off with the DE. During the week I shave with the DE exclusively, although occasionally I cannot resist one pass with the straight.

    Joe, these days I grab the soap or cream that grabs my eye that morning. On weekends, however, I usually go with creams. There, too, what strikes my fancy that morning is what I reach for. Same thing with my brushes, although with creams I usually go with the softer silver tips. The boars are strictly with soaps.

    Why I'm surprised at you Obie. Those be the ugliest combinations of razors I ever did feast my eyes on. Those can do real psychological damage to you. Just mail them to me and I'll know how to make them right again.

    Which reminds me of what happened at the doctor's. I have tennis elbow even though I don't play the blasted game. I said, "Doctor, when I twist my arm behind me, it really hurts."
    "Well, don't do it," he said.

    Thanks, Obie. You saved me a trip to the doctor's for my tennis elbow, and I also don't play the game either.
