The only time I've experienced that was when I had a full beard and was taking it off, in which case I now usually cut most of it off with scissors first.

Our youngest son Nash taking a bath on our porch a couple weeks ago. Our septic is having issues, and the repair guy can't come out until later this week. So all laundry/dishes/baths are done outdoors at the moment. Fortunately the younger kids absolutely adore taking baths in laundry buckets/bins on the porch while looking at the view and listening to the birdsong.

Was that a comment on my photo? Because I can't actually see the photo I posted, can you?

Yup, if you click the place where the broken-image icon appears, you can download the pic. Or at least that's how it functions in my browser.

Makes sense. I thought I'd ask someone who shaves that much area what works best. I've bought electric razors in the past but I seem to be just too thick- and coarse-haired for them -- maybe I'm doing it wrong.
Buy a safety razor. It's both the cheapest and the most efficient option.

Self-emasculation is a tricky business.

Rockin'.

I'd think Escape from Baltimore would be a scarier theme than Escape from New York.

I didn't, but I recall when you posted wrong name it on another occasion.  :laugh:  Both my first and middle name are older and less common orthographies of common names, so people get them wrong consistently. My last name is often written wrong too, but then I blame functional illiteracy. :p

Do you mean a double-edge safety razor? I bought a DE last year along with some quality blades. Tried it once or twice but need to get back to it.

It's been a while.  From this past weekend.  Eyepatch being worn for costume purposes as our upcoming scooter rally in Baltimore is Escape from New York themed.
Iron Maiden shirt, the eyepatch, the gesture... It looks, let's say, strong.

Thanks.  It used to be wavy but diabetes took it out.  At least that is all I can think to blame. :)

My mandolin skills are mostly playing tunes I know from violin/piano/guitar by ear. Some of that is the traditional American songbook, some is old shape hymns and some is the standard classical repertoire. Same for the strummed dulcimer.

So I guess the answer is sorta. I can play along with real bluegrass musicians.

If only I were half so young, good-looking, and musically accomplished.

You're looking appropriately sober for the location.
