Well I’ve owned this amazing straight razor for a number of years now. It’s a vintage Filarmonica Doble Temple. It’s in perfect condition, as its NOS (new old stock). I have a fascination with straight razors, and this is a very in demand razor. I normally shave with a razor from the early to mid 1800’s. I’ve decided to sell this one. Sad to see it go, but I just don’t see myself ever using this one since it is NOS. So time to let it go. This puppy should fetch about $300 or so. Anyway, have a great night. - Withoutink 💚
Happy Birthday to my little spring roll. Yup, my son turns 6 today. Can’t believe it. We adopted him from China right at the start of the 2008 Beijing Olympics. What a great kid. It’s great seeing him grow up. I love him dearly. Currently I’m heading home from Florida early so I can make it home by dinner. Tomorrow the Atlanta Zoo! Today, i also remember his birth parents, and i know their hearts are breaking a bit today. i hope god comforts them today… Anyway, have a great weekend. - Withoutink 💚 (at Palm Beach International Airport (PBI))
I’m not a huge fan of posting food photos. Although, I do consider myself a foodie. Today I will make an exception.
Last night, I had the best Chicken & Waffles ever. Actually, I’d say this was the best fried chicken I’ve ever had in my life. Seriously.
You may have never had the honor of experiencing this dish. If you are ever in West Palm Beach, FL. You have to stop at Bay Bay’s Chicken & Waffles. This will be a defining foodie moment in your life.
For those that don’t understand. I say to you, the uninitiated… Don’t knock it until you try it. The combination of sweet and salty, soft and crunchy is ethereal. This is a really dynamic culinary match. Try it some time. Note however, all instances are not always perfect examples. Many times I’ve had mediocre variants of this dish. But when you find a place that specializes in it. You truly will strike gold. Bay Bay’s knocked it out of the park.
Anyway, have a great day. - Withoutink 💚 (at Bay Bays Chicken & Waffles)
Open yourself up to things you are afraid of. Stand tall, resolute and brave. Worry not about the past. Just look straight ahead into the present and the future. I will not fear the flight I must make today, even though the last flight could have been my demise. Anyway, I will be away for about a week. Have a great Sunday. - Withoutink 💚
Well we had some crazy storms last night. Our house in south Florida is a bunker made from poured concrete and cement block. The house up here is made from sticks basically. It’s strange thinking about those facts when an insane storm rolls through late at night. Specially considering the vast amount of huge trees on the property that could easily slam through the roof. We have one massive tree that needs to be cut down, as it was hit by lightning twice. Anyway, all is well… here is a shot walking the dogs this morning. Nice calm after the storm. Have a great day. - Withoutink 💚
Sunrise. Warm me. Show me your light. Bring to us the spring, the birds that chirp. I feel the cool breeze blow across my face as I gaze transfixed upon your glow. Rise high through the tree tops. Shinning down upon those that are lucky enough to see you and thoughtful enough to thank you. Come to us each day. Don’t ever let us forget your beauty. Have a great night. - Withoutink 💚
So after a long bit of searching… It was determined that I would never find that perfect farmhouse table. So I commissioned a local wood worker to build one. This is what I call upscale farmhouse. It’s using antique reclaimed southern walnut wood planks. Is should be done next week. Oddly enough it was less expensive to have built, Then to buy from a store. Plus it has some custom features. Specifically the size. And the legs are inset deeper. Anyway, have a great Sunday. - Withoutink 💚
Meet the famous Google bikes. They have tons of these bikes around the Google HQ campus in Mountain View. Since the campus is huge and has a large number of buildings. Google provides these bikes to their Googlers. So if they have a meeting three blocks away at another building. They take a bike and ride over. They then leave the bike out front and the next Googler that needs it just takes it. If your not on one. It’s free game. No assigned seating so to speak. Anyway, have a great night. - Withoutink 💚
