    Thanks Gary, but it seems to me that this goal (28) is difficult to achieve because it would be very expensive and not have so much Lambsfoot variety!;):thumbsup:

    Another day of great pics on the Guardians site - grats and thanks to all :thumbsup:

    I get more than a little slow on the uptake at times and find myself puzzled with understanding the meaning of your sentence.
    The context was with regard to graduation, so I'm assuming that you were referring to overseeing and organizing the ceremony.
    Am I correct?
    If not, and since I'm always interested in learning something new (to me, anyway), I'm hoping you or someone will enlighten me.

    Apologies for the blurred pic

    Thanks Duncan :) :thumbsup:

    Thanks buddy :) Me too! :D :thumbsup:

    You're not alone in that Vince! ;) Bring back :grumpy:! :D :thumbsup:

    Beautiful Dwight :) :thumbsup:

    A pleasure my friend, I know more about the history of the Barlow family than I know about my own ancestors! :thumbsup:

    Great to see you here Dylan :) Good to have your opinion on the Kupilka my friend :thumbsup: Yes, my kuksa is smaller than I would have liked. It is OK for coffee in the woods, or miso soup which I have grown quite fond of, or tea if you have a pot to pour from, and certainly for a dram, but a bigger one would have been more useful :thumbsup:

    Sounds like you are a pretty proficient fiddler Dylan :) Fine photo too :) :thumbsup:

    Good lads :) Excellent pic Joshua :thumbsup:

    Good stuff Vince :thumbsup:

    Sorry to hear about your father Harvey, they were certainly an incredible generation. My grandfather was definitely quite a character, I think he may have actually been sorry when the fighting was over! My other grandfather, by contrast, never left England during WW2. My grandmother's brother probably had the toughest war experiences of my immediate family, as he was already in the army as a boy soldier when war broke out. He was a tank driver throughout WW2, at Tobruck, Monte Casino, El Alamein, and also at Dunkirk. He was blown up 3 times, and each time had to crawl out through the corpses of his comrades. When I think of that war though, my thoughts are often drawn to the American troops, partly because those boys came so far, often from farms and small towns, and for many, D-Day would have been their first taste of battle - a hard start :( :thumbsup:

    :D :thumbsup:

    Some vacation eh John?! :rolleyes: I hope you get a bit of free time at least my friend :) :thumbsup:

    Ace pic :) :thumbsup:

    Sorry. I thought processing looked a little funny. What I meant was I took part in the procession of graduates, for that ceremony only.

    Well the thing about the grandfather who didn’t leave England, as others, had the War come to them. I admire the spirit of the British People as they dealt with direct attacks.

    My Father, like your grandmother’s brother was also a tank driver. All the experiences your grandmother’s brother had could fill a book.

    If you haven’t seen Ken Burns, seven part series, “The War,” and wanted an exceptional view of those “Boys,” I would highly recommend it.

    Carried this one today for luck, but England needed more than that! Baked baguettes after the disastrous extra time.

    My father and your uncle were in at least one battle together, Monte Casino. My father was in artillery observation and went through North Africa, southern Italy through Rome and then Monte Casino. Then went up through southern France up to Alsace Loraine and ended the war in Germany. One of my memories as a boy is that when he would get to close to the edge of the road he would swerve to the middle; a habit he developed to avoid land mines. He went into the war as a First Lieutenant and came out as a Lt. Colonel. He stayed in the reserves until he had his twenty years in.

    Been a while since I stopped by. Nice to see the usual suspects!

    This one has become a standard daily carry. For some reason, I prefer carrying this over a GEC. I think because it wasn't built so perfectly... it's more apparent that human hands built it. Even the pins have a hammered look to them. They match my rough hands.

    Anyways, just wanted to stop by and say hello to everyone!
