Saying Hello from Southern California

Post by GreekGuy » Fri Jan 20, 2012 9:56 pm

Hello gentlemen,

I'm new to SMF and just wanted to say hello. I grew up in the midwest but am now living in La Jolla, CA. Ive been wetshaving for a few years and been loving every minute of it. While I have been a member of a couple other forums for some time, I just joined SMF. I really like the atmosphere here and I look forward to getting to know the people here better. I'm a mostly straight razor shaver, as thats what I learned on, but I do use DEs from time to time when I'm in a rush.

Anyway, just wanted to say hello. Looking forward to spending much more time here.
-Nick

Thank you gentlemen. And Nathan, La Jolla isn't too bad at all, although San Jose is no place to complain about either :wink:

Welcome. I have fond memories of San Diego ... I was married (and still am) there almost 53 years ago. It is a lovely city, big enough to be a city but still small enough to have a sense of community. Of course, La Jolla was only a small suburb then but has changed considerably over the years ... I think for the better.

I knew a dentist from San Diego who got divorced and moved to Key West because it was the most far he could get away from the ex.
