    Labor Day Flea Market!
    $25 four-line Camillus. Bill isn't a "Priced to sell!" kind of guy.

    And for $2, how could I not? Even though I had to add the rubber tip.

    My yard at 3:00 this afternoon.
    The skies are pretty smokey and dark.

    Looks pretty ominous, John. :(:thumbsdown:
    Best wishes for the safety of you and your neighbors!
    (Is that a little propane tank under the tree?)

    It's actually a very large propane tank under a massive Oak tree.

    Thanks for giving me the correct perspective, John! :thumbsup::thumbsup:
    I think my perception of the world shrinks later in the day, as I start anticipating going to bed.

    Mine looked about like that last night. Ashes galore and needed to sleep with the windows closed due to the reek of smoke, even though it was cool last night.
    Here's the current fire map posted by Cal Fire.

    It's been pretty smoky in Oregon this weekend both from home grown fires and fires in Washington.

    To everyone affected by the fires, stay safe and look out for one another and your families. It has been an eventful year. Take care.

    Every year I marvel that there's anything left to burn.

    On a lighter note...
    I often get a chuckle when I read knife descriptions on eBay.
    For instance, today I saw an obvious Trapper described as a Half-Canoe. :D

    My thoughts and prayers to all those in the areas affected by the fires. Please be safe out there! The meteorologist on my morning station was showing how the smoke from the western fires were actually affecting our air quality here in SE Tennessee. The smoke is actually changing the colors we see in our sunrise.

    I hope all of y’all on the west coast are able to stay safe! Those fires seem to get more frightening every year! :(

    A bit of good news (which seems to be in short supply this year), my wife was finally called back to work this week after nearly six months on furlough due to the pandemic. :thumbsup:
