When I was a young fellow in High School [1950's] I used to go, at every chance, to the local "well to do" Golf Club and caddy for extra dollars.There was a bunch of us kids lined up on the bench in the caddy shack hopeing to get selected by the caddymaster for a loop.There with us was always Larry,the most senior caddy ever invented ,funny,friendly and an all around good old guy. Larry could not always walk straight and for safety reasons,no one ever would get too close with a lighted cigarette if you understand. Larry shaved with a straight razor only because that is what he had.We were forever asking what happened to his face and kidded him about pet wildcats etc,.One day he came in with a big gash right over the main plumbing lines on his neck.He had a big bunch of toilet paper packed over it and then taped it up with that old fashioned white adhesive tape.Thru all of that the blood was still bright red and not quite stopped off.He wasn't talking and nobody was kidding with him. We all felt terrible for him. Even the caddymaster told him he could not put him out until he healed to a presentable condition. All thoughts I ever had to shave with a straight razor left me forever at that moment.I am sure Larry is no longer having to worry about a nasty slice anymore,so to Larry- Thanks for the memorys,you gave us kids a lot of real life wisdom,probably saved all of us caddys from a visit to the emergency room, and gave us a few laughs too. Mike P.S. DE Gillette or Shick single edge injectable razor works for me,use them both.Thanks to Larry that's the extent of my razor inventory.
