This has been a tough week.  Nevertheless, there were a few bright points for me.  My birthday was yesterday and I ordered a soap and aftershave bundle that arrived a couple of days ago.  I never tried Tallow+Steel and the idea of a Rainforest scent sounded very intriguing.  I think I will break it in next week.  I was also given a vintage razor from my mother-in-law.  It belonged to my wife's grandfather.  It is GEM "Push-Button" in very nice condition.  The picture shows a water spot, but trust me the razor is very clean and I accidentally put the spot there after cleaning!  I never used a "Push-Button" so it makes a nice addition, plus it includes family history.  I told my son he could have his great-grandfather's razor and he likes the idea - he is a wet shaver too.  I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy.

Monday I received a little late B-Day present - A NOS 1973 Schick Grip Tennis handle L Type Injector.  I'm not the biggest tennis fan, but really like the look of the handle and heard many say it feels good in the hands - plus I really dig Schick Injectors.  The razor is very cool and will be put to use soon.  A little fun during these trying times.  I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy.

A Defender cartridge razor.  I'm going to give it a try once, and if it shaves reasonably well, I'll use it for travel once we can go on trips again.

Acqua di Parma Colonia aftershave.  My skin didn't tolerate it before, but in my insanity I am trying it again.

Received a package a couple of days ago with some new stuff from PAA.  Something to look forward to during the lock down.  I can't wait to break it in tomorrow starting my fourth week of using my straight razor daily.
