    Kindness is never lost - it is absorbed and transcended into the world and time.

    @Misplaced Hillbilly and @chuck4570 very sorry to hear about the animals. It absolutely crushed me a couple of years ago to put the family dog down, that’s why I’ll never have another pet.

    Always hard to lose a friend, whether four-legged or other. I'm sorry for the loss of your friend.

    My wife and orchids is like me and knives. We don't collect, we just kind of accumulate.
    My wife keeps them on in the kitchen by the sink. We have a window that extends out. The plants seem to like the gentle northern light and the moisture from the sink. They normally bloom once a year and it's usually in the January-February time frame.

    I said all that to say that that five of them are currently in various stages of blossoming and it's pretty. I managed to get four of them in the same shot.

    Today is going to be a good one. I’ve got three packages out for delivery featuring three distinct type of knives. An addition to one of my passions, a gift, and a beautiful little stag custom.

    No new knives, but a lot of us are gun guys & gals too, and I just nabbed a Smith & Wesson 29-2 4" nickel from 1979 in beautiful, lightly fired condition. Going to the range in about an hour to test her out. I'm pumped! I'll post some pics later today.
