Congrats! And when you show the pictures, we hope not to see the little guy next to a MWF dish.

Hey, it's never too early to introduce the kid to the proper way to shave, even if you don't put a blade into the holder. Maybe I should bring him a strop next time I pass through Bolton :D That will introduce the kid to the best.. Who knows, maybe Tony will start making baby-sized strops :twisted:

Don't worry, I already have all the gear x10. I am told I have to move my straight razors from a shelf in the bedroom that will be near the bassinet. Even though the baby isn't close enough and is too young to grab them... Ahhh the lifestyle changes I will have to suffer through! :lol:

It will be worth it though!

The girlfriend and I when I had a goatee (a few months ago). (I'm 30, she's 20. Life CAN be good!)
It is now gone and I am learning to shave my chin through trial and error!
I OBVIOUSLY had a bad shave that day!
I think it was a feather and this was like ten hours after I shaved.
(that's my excuse anyways! A five o'clock shadow!)

Here's a recent one, taken on February 22, 2007.
I'm on the right. The legendary Jello Biafra is on the left.
He's seated, and I'm crouching down to get in the shot.

And here I am at a June 1999 DNC fundraiser. Clinton was still in office.
I was an invited guest (no, I couldn't swing $10,000 a plate).
I shaved twice that day: once before work and once before the event. Yowza.

I felt the same way when I met former President Ford in college. Scared shitless. I'd love to meet Clinton.

I'll say!! Isn't he pulling your hand towards his crotch??

Apologies in advance. I'm a huge Clinton supporter, and I'd vote for him today if he could run. I used to petition, BTW, for the Thomas Jefferson club in Brooklyn, and was good friends with a former chair of the NYC Finance Committee.

Well, since Gordon is a big proponent of quality English shaving products, I’ve always pictured him as an English Duke. Something along the lines of these two fine gentlemen that are engaged in a game of “You shave my face and I’ll shave yours”.
