So, I guess I could also have titled this something like “Wet Shaving – The Adventure Continues” and it would have worked  It’s definitely different from electric shavers and nowhere near a cartridge system.  It takes skill, patience, persistence, and no little bit of courage as you put a really rather sharp and minimally protected […]

18 April 2014 – Fishing – Keepers and New Gear

So, I had yesterday off from work for a couple of reasons.  One of them is that daycare is closed Friday and Monday for the Easter holiday.  I had Ember all day long and we had a pretty good time, but I’m not quite up to taking her somewhere like a lake to go fishing […]
