Again, Generosity Rains Down...

16 Jun in Good Friends, Good Stuff, Shave Soap

You know, if I keep posting about the great stuff that happens to me, some people might think I'm boasting....Screw 'em.

So a member of a couple of the forums I post on messaged me with some questions about hones a while back. I did my best to answer him, though I am no expert, and gave him all the information I had gathered in my own research into this subject. We went back and forth for a while, exchanging emails and sharing info, and I think he felt satisfied with what I had to share. I hope so, anyway.

Well, a couple of weeks or so ago, I got another message, saying something like "I'm sending you a present because I want to. Keep an eye out for a package..."

Now, we all like presents, so of course I was excited...I didn't feel I deserved anything but then, who ever does?

Well...last weekend I got a package. I very excited opened. What did I find?

The

Holy

Freaking

Grail.

Amazing. I've not had the opportunity to shake this man's hand, or even see his face! But when I do, it will be a hand well shook, let me tell you.

It's odd for a man who doesn't believe in God to use this word, but sometimes I feel really blessed...

Anyway...yeah. Someone (He knows who he is, and if he reads this THANK YOU!!!) GAVE me Penhaligon's English Fern SHaving Soap in a wood bowl. I'm still in shock...

You are a lucky man Jim!

Please give us a report, the-whole-nine-yards, on the Irish Fern.
Fragrance, ease of shave, etc. Does your wife like it? All those things.
We eagerly await.

Thanks, Luxlover, I am indeed a lucky man.
My wife seems to like the scent well enough, but she's not a big scent fan in general...she says everything I have smells like her grandpa--which is not a bad thing.

As for the shave and whatnot, I believe I already wrote about that...

Hi Jim. I know you had already received a puck of the EF, but now you've got the beautiful bowl to go with it, and you've got a backup. I've been wondering, and maybe you've already posted about it, but how's the big beautiful custom brush coming along?

Hey Brothers, how's it going? Thanks for read...

Hey Brothers, how's it going? Thanks for reading!

Yes, I am well blessed with English Fern, and boy am I happy. It is a wonderful soap!

The custom brush--do you mean Betty the Beautiful Boar? She had to be sent back for refinishing--there was some "peeling"--but she just came back today and got me all lathered up with no trouble! A lovely brush, indeed.
