    If comic books were still just .25 cents, I'd read a lot more of them. :cool::thumbsup:

    Nice gravity defying Lamb. :cool::thumbsup:

    Looks like a great place to spend some time. :cool::thumbsup:

    Putting it right to good use. :cool::thumbsup:

    That does look relaxing. :cool::thumbsup:

    Beautiful sunset. :cool::thumbsup:

    That's amazing, I'd like to see it work. :cool::thumbsup:

    Yes, it was mostly French Canadians and
    Irish that build the canal working side by side in very hard working conditions.

    Their heritage lives in the area as many were given some land and settled in it.

    I look at what they did and marvel.
    ( and the fact that I have an easy and privileged life as compared to what they endured does not escape my thoughts. .. here I am enjoying all this while so many died building it )

    Cool pic John :cool: :thumbsup:

    Here's a fast version! ;) :D :thumbsup:



    A huge number died here when the railways came along a few years later. They are largely forgotten, but here is a Navvies Memorial in a small town close to where I live. It is tucked away, on the edge of the churchyard, and almost as unknown as the workers it commemorates.

    I noticed that a small takeaway curry place up the road from me had become a small Thai restaurant during the lockdown. It has covered outdoor seating, so seeing the prominent 'Thai Food Now Being Served' sign outside, I thought I might call there for lunch. Turned out 'Now' was an exaggeration, they only serve food in the evenings, and just coffee during the day o_O

    Glad I was able to console myself with a piece of pie (even if all the apple pies had been snaffled again - this one is cherry) :rolleyes:

    Hi John, very nice photo of your lamb foot knife. The stamps remind me of the series "The Mandelorian" that I just enjoyed watching.

    Thank you, Jack. :)
    That is my entire stamp collection. ;)

    That's very cool. I guess it runs in reverse going back up?
    Going back up must take forever!!!

    Cherry will do in a pinch. ;):thumbsup:

    Great series, we watch it too.
    The stamps were a gift from Jack and most cherished.

    I'll do that... :D:thumbsup:

    I have had this one and others like it a long time now. :)

    I wish I had a dollar for all the 10 cent comic books I read. :p

    Wound Care morning today.:eek: They changed it from Tuesday to Monday. Maybe they think it'll make it feel better - yeah right.:rolleyes: Buffalo Horn covers on this knife. By the time I get out of Wound Care, it'll feel like I've been run over by a buffalo.:(

    :D :thumbsup:

    Yeah, it runs both ways. I think it takes around the same amount of time going both ways, but at the weekends, to try and speed things up, and avoid queues, they have a team there to do the work :thumbsup:

    :) :thumbsup:

    Good luck Ed :thumbsup: How much longer now, do you know? :thumbsup:

    It's 8% Bill, a pair of these is all I need:)
    I'm with you Bill, I like em all :thumbsup: I like the Islay offerings too, I like Laphroig quarter cask a lot, it's more complex than their 10 year old. Lagavulin 16 is a good one, very smooth and not as in your face with the peat, sometimes I prefer the stronger peat of Ardbeg or Laphroig. My personal favorite Islay is Talisker 10 year. Just right for my taste buds:thumbsup::thumbsup:
    The 20+ year olds are just too expensive:thumbsdown:
    Nothing like starting at the top with your first lambsfoot :eek::thumbsup::thumbsup: congratulations and welcome to the Gaurdians :thumbsup::thumbsup:
    Haha, as were the contents of the glass :) thanks for your compliments Gary:thumbsup::thumbsup:
    It's fun to visit his house, it's impossible to sample everything so I just pick 3 or 4 and have a sip or two:D
    Thanks Jack, appreciate the compliment :thumbsup::thumbsup:
    Beautiful countryside Jack:eek: thanks for the pictures :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    I am also a Talisker fan Rob, but I think it is from the Isle of Skye rather than Islay :)
