Sigh


Freckles, they are good.


My business partner visited his family cabin in North Tahoe, and saw these lovelies hanging around.



Probably hoping to catch a tasty human unawares and weaponless.



More Democratic lies revealed.

Remember Sarah Jeong, the sickening racist hater of white people hired by the New York Times?

In a hugely ironic development, the management there, which is certainly nearly 100% white, has forced her to sterilize her twitter account to the extent that she's only commenting on the joys of drinking cold water, and how wonderful autumn is.

This must be eating her seething, hate filled soul alive.

It also means her bosses at the Times must be getting big feedback on their decision to continue to employ someone so poisonous, and are censoring her public content.  Contemplate that, a pillar of the MSM, censoring their own board member's public communication.

The comments on this situation are hilarious.  Over at Ace there's this sarcastic howler:

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens 

Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens 

Brown paper packages tied up with strings 

Wishing whitey was dead 

These are a few of my favorite things


Other good ones over at Ace:

Nothing like some cool water on a hot day, amirite you YOU FUCKING PIECE OF SHIT WHITE MEN!!!!


"Strong, proud, fierce AZN Womyn!!!!! Hear me roar!!!!!" 
... but new boss man says STFU….



It's a lovely day with bright sunshine and clear skies. Absolutely perfect for KILLING WHITE MEN!!!

Rainbows are what happens after it rains. Another thing that happens after the rain is that white people smell bad.

So, any bets on when she cracks and goes postal?

Mud and Roaring Engines.



Thanks for sending this over Robert

Scouts and Aspens. Good times long gone.

Well done indeed!


Shave of the Day



Man, that Rockwell with a fresh Derby blade is a rip roaring monster. Two passes and it's a better shave quality than most of my straights give. The cost is a bit more blood than I'm used to. A mosquito bit me on the neck, I forgot the little bump was there, and the danged razor took the top off it. Ouch.

The A&E Summer Fig made a superlative lather, rich and creamy, but had little to no scent. The Damp Cellar horsehair whipped the lather up nicely. The Summer Break Teacher's Pet is about my favorite aftershave right now, a crisp apple scent really tops off the shave nicely, and makes me look forward to Fall.

Trump approval among African Americans hits 36%.








Preach it, sister!


These look very cheerful

Shave of the Day

Interesting story behind the Shave today.

Mrs. CW made me a gift of this straight razor.  It's handled in Brazilian Ironwood, and the blade is made by the Germans for the Turner Hardware Co. of Muskogee.  Everyone knows that old song "Okie from Muskogee,", but this blade has the abbreviation I.T. , and no mention of Oklahoma.


That's because it stands for Indian Territory, which was what Oklahoma was before it became Oklahoma.  Every Oklahoman knows the five civilized tribes of the territory are the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek, and Seminole.

And my grandpa on my mom's side.  His birth certificate lists "The Indian Territory" as the location of his entry into this world, although he wasn't Indian. He was plenty civilized and one tough hombre. To make the circle complete, on the other side of the family, they married into the Choctows.

It's a blade that could have been owned by Rooster Cogburn.  Gotta have true grit to dare use it.

Now, thanks to Mrs. CW, I can shave with a cut throat that was likely in use at the same time my grandpa roamed the Ouachita country, the banks of the Poteau River, and old Fort Smith, Arkansas. 


Today's shave is made of Local Gent California Barber soap, the Lava on Ice two band badger brush from Wild West Brushworks, Barrister and Mann Le Grand Chypre aftershave, and of course the edge provided by the Civilized Indian Territory Turner Hardware Co. straight.

Sand Shark on the Hunt


The Sacra di San Michele, sometimes known as Saint Michael's Abbey, is a religious complex on Mount Pirchiriano, situated on the south side of the Val di Susa in the territory of the municipality of Sant'Ambrogio di Torino, in the Metropolitan City of Turin, Piedmont region of northwestern Italy.



Amazing that such places exist.  Looks like something out of the LOTR.

How about a Trump wallet?  He looks mad.
