I hate spending money

…..and I sure spent a shit load this week. What did I buy? A better question would be “what didn’t I buy?”

For starters, I added to my shaving collection. I switched to wet shaving awhile ago. Nothing beats it. Not only is it a much better shave, but it brings back the tradition of shaving like a man. No longer do I rub crappy gel shaving cream into my face and drag a Mach III across it. Now I take the time to work up a lather with shaving soap and a badger hair brush. Then I strop my “new” (circa early 1900’s purchase #1, no picture) straight razor with my new (purchase #2) The Well Shaved Gentleman four sided paddle strop. Wow. What a shave.

I also bought tickets to the Faith Hill/Tim McGraw concert next month. I probably would have saved myself a ton of dough had I not waited until the last minute. I still managed to get great seats, but I sure paid for them.

Then, today, I picked up this:


I’ll be keeping my wallet closed for some time to come.

  1. Sweet. Would appreciate comments on the truck as you get used to it. Quality, ride, any transmission problems.

  4. My sister went to the Faith and Tim concert and loved it – she said her $89.00 per person was well spent.

    Nice truck! Ouch on the gas mileage, though.

  9. And I thought I was broke after buying a new washing machine!

    As for the shaving thing, my great granddad always used a Clydesdale Strop for his straight razors. I had it in my basement until a few years ago, it got wet somehow, and got nasty gray and green mold all over it. I wish I still had it, a good reminder of a good man.

    Good luck with the truck, and be careful never to shave with one of those things if hung over.
    All the best,

  10. Where did you get the straight razor? I myself don’t shave, but I’d like to get a classic one for my son, who currently uses a modern straight razor which takes disposable blades.

  12. Gordon, must you be such a twat?

    BTW, the Preble Street yard squirrels still want their acorn back from your SVO. Ha!
