    I finished this one over the weekend. I thought it was very entertaining! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    My plan for this summer was to read Asimov's Robot novels, then his Empire novels, then his Foundation novels. I've now finished the 4 Robot novels and the collection of robot short stories that precede them in fictional time. But it's already mid-July, the 3 Empire novels are proving somewhat challenging to find, and there are 7 Foundation novels on my list. So I've decided to skip the Empire novels for now.

    Thanks, Dwight. :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:
    (My decision to skip the Empire novels was based more on availability of time than availability of the books themselves. And I didn't have the self-control to get started on the Foundation novels that are all related, as opposed to the Empire novels that are independent of one another, as I understand it.)

    Looks like the Cat's taken up reading and fancies a fish supper:D:cool:

    Good Coco pairing, different blades and frames, which do you think works best in the hand?

    Regards, Will

    If love is going to be dangerous, then I definitely prefer that it also be elusive! :eek:
    And, for that matter, if a novel is haunting, then I'm moving!
    Who writes these dust jackets??

    Will,
    Thank you. I really loved the 73 fit but the pull was so hard I never used it. The guy I sold it to cleaned it up beautifully and says he might be able to lighten it up some. I got one of the jigged bone 93s now and absolutely love it. I also have an ebony lambsfoot on the way. For a pushing cuts the 73 for sure is better, for pulling the 93. The 93 won't pierce full blade length like the 73 but the tip is actually pokier for a shallow cut. I actually use the Meher &Grosh 15 most.

    Almost done! I'll let the epoxy sit over night before I start hacking away at the handle.

    So I couldn't stand to let the epoxy sit overnight. It'll be fine.
    This is as done as it's going to get, for now, at least.
    I didn't make this sheath. I think I bought a really cheap knife that didn't suit the sheath at all, to get the sheath. And it also will do for now.

    I like to think it looks marginally better from the other side.

    This is a suuuuper late response but I wanted to thank you for a very enjoyable read last summer!

    Based on y'all's posts I was able to get this one from the local library. Thoroughly enjoyed it -- she made me literally laugh out loud.

    Maybe it's the diabetes that has me thinking about food so much.
