Before Daddy Papersurfer invented himself – with (Quite a lot of. Lo,TG Ed) help – nay, even before the Interweave consisted of loads of string and cocoa tins, my mother-in-law bought me a razor for Christmas.

DP Razor [Not the original razor]

I had been married to her daughter for about ten years or so, and had sported a full beard for the duration.

I wondered if it was a hint.

I asked her.

“Oh, no. I like your beard.  I thought the razor might come in handy in a few years time.”

She was a bit like that ……….

(I take exception to that – she was a LOT like that! Lo,TG Ed)
