Just today I did a self cut, with the wife finishing off the fine details around the ears and neckline.

I do hope you only mean in terms of haircut.

AG is going to press me into that duty shortly. At least she's much less touchy about it than most women.

PM me for offer details.

That could easily be classified as terrorism, actually. :eek:

Yeah. He is totally NOT a skinhead. He's just bald for a few weeks now.

Good for you. I canít imagine what a self haircut by me or my wife would look like. :twitchy:

Ingrowns are much less likely with safety razors. I think that I shave every three days or so. Stubble is acceptable right about now.

wut.

They're called "safety razors."

Oh wait - I forgot who I was talkin' to. :o

Much better than cartridge/disposable razors. Smoother, doesn't clog as easily. It just takes a little time to remember to let the weight of the razor do the work - if you press, you'll draw blood sooner rather than later.

Tonight my wife and I went on our first ride together in over a year :love:

Riding this evening and it came to my attention that my rig has been making a lot of noise lately.

I conducted an exhaustive investigation and discovered that one side of the base of my water bottle holder is broken.

:wtf: I barely even use it.

They don't make things the way they used to. SMH.

So, this water bottle holder was a recent purchase?

Nope, it's original to the bike.

They used to make them at the blacksmith's shop, with horseshoes and wagon wheels.
