Went down to NYC yesterday and stopped into Pasteur's. I kept myself in check and only grabbed a few things. I have to say, without all of the scented soaps alluring me, it was an easier shopping trip (for me and the wallet).

The two bar soaps smell great, and I was running low. The wife came along and approved of both, as she uses the soap too.

The Aspen Parkland is definitely my current favorite shave soap, so I figured I should have a bit of extra stock (2 unused tubs now). They definitely go fast.

Finally, I decided to grab the T3 brush, as some folks really enjoy them and the color options for Simpson appear to be harder to come by. We'll have to see how it works for me. [Image: a3eae35a3553f18e44381ac17139e703.jpg]

Aspen Parkland and a lovely looking Simpson! Nice work, my man!

Haha. Am I becoming that predictable Dave? You aren't wrong, my friend...

Looking at my shaving den, it's basically nothing like what it was a year ago... and the same a year before that. I hope by the 10 year anniversary I'll get some level of normalcy. Lol.

We'll see how this one holds up, but I'll let you know first if it's not my cup of tea.

Have a great rest of your Sunday.

Thst T3 is sweet. I’ve been debating that one from Pasteur. They do have some nice ones, I got my emerald one from them. In my opinion, the Trafalgar brushes are an amazing value based on price/performance. If for some reason it doesn’t work for you I’d be happy to pick it up from you if you decide to sell. I’m not betting on it, though. I’m sorry I didn’t buy a couple of really nice limiteds from Simpson directly. I just didn’t have the money at the time and then they were gone. I haven’t seen them for sale anywhere else new or secondhand.

I meant no disrespect, sorry. I meant it to be humorous but not at your expense. Sorry

Hey Dave in KY, I got the humor, and knowing we are both of the same generation, figured you'd get a kick out of Rodney! Paul can take the kidding, is my bet, and can give it in his unique and polite way, too. But if I am wrong, then Paul, I meant no disrespect (no pun intended, given the meme!). But I do have to ask: is Mr. Dangerfield in your memory, too?

No worries Dave... I took it as a joke and even attempted to play along.
