She’s great. I knew she was a keeper when the turtle didn’t scare her away. 😀
I was on “a walk in nature” a few months ago and found this next to a creek. I didn’t realize until I picked it up it was just a shell. Now it lives on a shelf in our house.
Do cows count as nature?
That’s exactly what I mean. I had an emergency appendectomy in 8th grade. On the way home from the hospital we stopped at the pet store and my parents got me a turtle. He even survived coming to college with me. Unfortunately I don’t have a picture of me with him when I was a kid (I’ll have...
It’s the Grouse Ridge trail head. There’s an old fire look out up there and I guess that was their outhouse.
Thanks. Yes, it is a Tenkara rod. It packs down small and is quick to set up so it’s handy for camping or to have in the truck if I have a little bit of free time. Do you ever use...
My wife and kids and I really enjoy hiking and camping. I generally only take knife pictures when I’m by myself at work or around the house, but I managed to take a couple on a hike to Fallen Leaf lake with the family this winter.
And if we’re doing outhouses, we took the kids on their first...
I’m fortunate to be able to spend most of my days outside for work. Here are a couple shots from today.
There are acres of purple vetch blooming in the pasture right now. (The pictures don’t do it justice)
There were turkeys running around with the cows this morning also.
Sounds like a perfect day. Hiking with the dog, power tools, beer, beef, and a movie. What more could you need?
That also looks like a great day. Any fish on a fly rod is a good one to me. I need to find some time to get out to the bass pond.
I’m carrying this one today. I went to the...
Thanks, John. The lathe is relatively new, so I’m still figuring things out. I’ve been playing around with yo-yos since I was a little kid. It’s fun to mess around with them with my kids now. I guess the take-apart design makes these “modern traditionals”.
Another thing I started doing with my time at home is making yo-yos on my lathe. It’s pretty goofy but it’s been fun and an interesting challenge.
I’ve used mostly wood, but the white one is made out of a chunk of plastic from a water tank we cut up. I made them with a threaded axle...
