    Today's buys:
    I might have a new favorite deer spear. Also a knife that I don't know what it's for, but I'm sure it's a good one, and three old files that will become knives.

    Looks to be a corn knife.

    Interesting hall

    Thanks and thanks for the ID.
    I know so little about farming, I had no idea that much of the corn I've been driving by is sorghum until Mom mentioned it a couple years ago.

    We had a good day yesterday. My parents, grandparents, sister, a few aunts & uncles, together we made 50 gallons of apple cider on our old family press. That's a record for us.

    May be the best Shakespeare film I've seen.

    I had to google it. I'll see if I can conjure it up with my firestick.

    So did anyone else know that this is referred to as a "rafter" of turkeys?

    I hate to admit it. From a book my son gave me one Father's Day.

    I learned recently that a group of pelicans can be called a "squadron", that's about as cool as it gets :cool:

    On a side note, my wife and I have now spotted 72 different species of birds in our backyard :eek: Green Bay is a migratory route for many. The latest two I saw a couple weeks ago were an Eastern Towhee and a Yellow Rumped Warbler. Not my pictures but really pretty birds.

    I got some nice stuff today: a Frontier Las Vegas money-clip, so the babes will think I'm a high roller; a folding spoon (never saw such a thing), a pinned-through solid bolster Colonial Forest Master with pen instead of awl (never saw such a thing), and a Schrade-Walden H-15. I have an H-15, but for $35, how could I not get a spare. I love that knife.

    A Question for the clothing designers, tailor's, seamstresses, and others involved in he clothing industry that frequent this forum:

    Why ... why ... oh why ... don't coveralls and overalls have belt loops?
    It would make it ever so much easier to carry a sheath knife (either (to use the old terminologies) a "hunting knife"/"skinning knife"/"belt knife" or a "large" "folding hunter", such as a Old Timer 25OT/6OT/7OT, or Buck 110.)
    (particularly when the overalls/coveralls in question are (a) insulated and (b) camouflage, intended to be worn when hunting.)
    Even the "tube pocket" (for lack of a better term/description) on the left shoulder of coveralls, and/or in the center of the bib of bib overalls that could accommodate a folding hunting knife (or other tool), are becoming almost as rare as rooster, guppy, and goldfish teeth :(

    Carry a Mora. A lot of those pants will have one or more buttons which will hang a Mora sheath.
