    Thank you Harvey! :)

    Thank you Jack! :)

    Thanks my friend! :thumbsup: :)

    :thumbsup: :D

    :thumbsup: :D

    Those beautiful Queen Barlow’s look great in your photos Stuart! :thumbsup: They look soooo much better in person my friend!!! :cool: :thumbsup: :D

    Thanks for the compliment Gary! I’m honored to be mentioned in the same sentence as Dwight. I consider his photos to be top notch. I suspect that like myself Dwight takes most of his photos outside. What I consider my best photos are always taken on my back deck. I usually try for the time right before sunrise. :)

    Thanks GT! Yes Pujols was well received Friday night, the baseball fans here are a cordial bunch. I am still celebrating our Stanley Cup victory, I am an admitted bandwagon Cardinals fan :)

    My blue Pioneer X was helping me on rib duty today, they turned out pretty good.

    Just beautiful work by Jeff. The colors and texture of the horn makes it truly one of a kind. I'm hoping one day to have him make me one of his Navajas. Until then I'll gaze at photos and admire the coin knife he made for me.

    This is coming together. Nice Sunday. John Lee Hooker and grinding puukko oval handles. Cheap therapy. Basil Haden bbn single bbl 50/50 with selzer goes perfect with truoil 50/50 with mineral spirits and a dash of acetone. Crusty when dry

    Blade is scandy 62mm. Still striving for perfect pocket puukko.

    Wood is Russian Karelian Birch and Scandinavian Curly Birch. Dry and absorbent so it’s sucking up the truoil, now on 7th coat. Goal was functional blade in 6” for pruning figs. After Basil I’ll call this the Perfected Pocket Puukko Pruner and it cores apples too man

    Happy Sunday to you

    Man, my pulse is racing and my "like" button finger is plumb wore out! So many gorgeous knives up today. Took this with me to the Houston Fiber Arts Festival today. Stag handled 1095 knife and spinning your own yarn. Doesn't get much more traditional than that. Also means spending on Kim's hobbies this week outstripped mine, so doors have been opened! ;)

    I went actually to a few places nearby that were listed online but they only had a few models, none that I was interested in. I also wasn't too worried about the quality, there I would have trusted Amazon's return policy. But with the BoneStag I was very picky with the color and texture of the handle.

    Awfully late and way behind today.
    I went with these two eminently totable jacks today, had a loooonng, but enjoyable day with my wife’s maternal side of her family, and time to wind down in the hotel room with an unplugged guitar. FB8E18D1-9F00-4723-AC61-F1DBE0AB1C02.jpeg

    I have a straw cowboy hat that I bought in Mexico. The latigo decorative braiding is latino latigo, verdad?

    Ha ha ha. That lock never did do much good. What it really means is there were a few things Kim wanted, but she felt she’d spent enough already. So I snuck in and bought them for her before we left. The lock to the husband points has been opened and I’m rolling in them right now! :)
