My brother stayed with me the other night. He had a flight out of Austin to Lubbock. When he arrived he gave me beef steaks, hamburger meat, deer sausage(link and patty), round for stews and eggs. He has a 100 acre ranch outside of a little town called Cuero. Anyway, he sits down on the couch and we start talking. I asked him, since he travels a lot, what he had in his shave kit. He sort of looked at me funny with raised eye brows and said, "what I have in my shave kit?" He told me he doesn't use shave cream just the soap at the hotel. You know, the little bar soap. I said, "really?" I said, "How about I show you some real soap." I brought out Arko, Palmolive and Speick shave sticks and told him these were perfect for travel. You need to pamper yourself a little. I told him how to use them, with and without a brush. We left it at that and went on to other subjects. Yesterday he called and said, "I thought you were going to send me some links to the shave sticks?" I about fell out of my chair.

That would be a fare swap, beef steaks for shaving equipment. Wink

Many, many, many years ago I use to go hunting down around Cuero. Small world.
