Ok, no problem.
Looking spiffy, Tech! You shine up like a new penny gold eagle!
Yes, now if I could just get a haircut I'd look better in person too!

Excellent. The coin looks better than ever.

Haircut: now go for the opposite strategy. Don’t let the outer edges get transparent.

Tech,

I bought a $30 Wahl haircutting kit from Amazon.

Pretty good as long as one's wife wants to take a chance.

Small possibility to get it wrong, though, and with nobody else around, it will grow back unnoticed.

With my 4th cut coming up my barber is getting really good.

And the haircut kit paid for itself after 3 haircuts.

This Wahl kit has a cord- important to me. There are other, more expensive kits, if you wish.

This post may be better in a new thread: "Personal care during the virus."???

Cheers.

We had one of those but got rid of it. We may have to get another one if this keeps up; I don't want to risk my life to get a haircut.

I'm switching it out. Ribeye, Niagara Falls, tonight.
That tomahawk makes a good picture, but it has painful memories.

A tomahawk is always $100, plus. I ordered that in Catania, Sicily while on a volcano trip with my gal. Medium rare - to make sure all of the fat was hot. Standard procedure: the kitchen will sear it on a blazing fire and then put it in a slow oven for a half an hour.

After almost an hour, I asked the waiter what was up.

Then a guy in a suit, who was clearly someone's nephew, brought my steak. It was obvious that they had forgotten about it - and had just left it in the oven. It was visibly inedible. Destroyed. Mutton meat.

(Remember, this was Sicily) Then the nephew says "Enjoy!". No sane person would have served that steak.
My response was. "Thank you. Just the way I like it." Then we paid up and skedaddelled quick time.

In retrospect, I should have said. "I would like to pay for this steak as a gift to the kitchen. May the chef enjoy every bite."
That would have been the Sicilian thing to do.

😂 You can only enjoy a good steak once, but you can tell great stories about a bad one forever.

Add that one to the book - Famous Dualstow Quotes!

It will appear in the next edition of the book. What edition are we now on? 5th? I've lost track.

I hope everyone is vicariously enjoying Mark’s meals as much as I am.
