Beautiful brisk weather this morning.  29 degrees Fahrenheit and there’s still dummies walking around in short sleeves.  Even saw one jogger still in shorts!  Really? Smh.  Regardless Chico and I enjoyed our walk, both bundled up appropriately lol

Pulled out another of my “cheap” favorites..Derby Shaving cream.  This soap is so cheap (under $3 most places), and it performs so well!  Just a quarter sized dollop will whip into creamy, slick lather with just a small amount of water.  Great cushion and skin feel.  For less than three bucks!  How can you beat that?  I have two “flavors”, Mint & Lemon.  I have to admit the Lemon is my favorite as it reminds me of the candy Lemonheads.  The Mint is, well I don’t actually smell any mint, nor do I feel an “cooling” so the name Mint could be kind of misleading.  But still it’s a definite must buy!

Made it a double Derby day with a Derby Extra blade in the MR3.  Nicely sharp right off the bat.  Not as smooth as say the Astra SP but not overly harsh either.  Mowed through 3 days growth will little effort.  So couple of small patches of mild irritation is the only down side to this mornings shave.  BBS from dome to neck!
