    That brings to mind another - Look out for Heidi Hummell because she'll hit you on the head with her lunch box :eek:
    In the nurse's office, it was explained to me that she did that because she liked me o_O
    Probably had a lot to do with my later confusion re: the opposite sex :rolleyes: :D

    A few years ago, there was a march here, with school teachers and college lecturers demanding more pay. I kept shouting, "WALK! Don't RUN!" I was the only person who seemed to find it funny! :rolleyes: :D :thumbsup:

    When I was in High School, used to write to aircraft manufacturers for literature and photographs. Then just used to put America on the envelope. They always seemed to get there.

    Missed that Duncan was visiting the UK, have fun!

    I get a gold star for not thinking I live in the center of the universe. :p

    Okay, now you made me curious, so I looked up international postal codes. South Africa is "ZA", and the United States of America is "US" :confused: I don't think adding the "A" at the end can hurt, though.

    Anyway, thanks for all your hard work, @Jack Black , and have a great visit with Duncan next week!

    I have been at Rae Lakes a few times, but never in winter conditions. Cool picture. Where exactly did you hunker down?

    Today in the pocket:

    Great to see you posting here, StoneBeard! I've been scarce 'round these parts myself, so it was a special treat to see you post when I came to check in.

    I'm so glad you continue to enjoy the pattern!

    That's very nice of you to say, Jack. I'm still here, just haven't been able to keep up with drinking from the fire hose of posts that this thread has become. ;)

    Some of the things that have been keeping me away from the forum should be winding up over the next few weeks. Hopefully after that I'll be able to strike a better balance between keeping up with--and participating--here and keeping up with other parts of life.

    In the mean time, a quick experience report. As long-time guardians will know, I'm very partial to the standard A. Wright buffalo horn model that I've had for a few years and was my first lambsfoot. After I received my polished-blade rosewood model and sharpened it up, I made an effort to carry it a fair bit as well. Now I find that it's in my pocket about as frequently as my buffalo horn one is. They both are splendid work horses and some days I find myself wanting the smooth horn and some days I find myself wanting the lighter rosewood. It's nice to have the two, knowing that either will tackle whatever task I put it to.

    Tomorrow I have a several cardboard boxes to break down to put out with the recycling bin in the evening. I'm not sure which will do the honors, but I can guarantee that it will be one of those two lambsfoot knives.

    I hope everyone had a great weekend and has a safe and fulfilling week ahead of them.

    You’re kind of a legend here. The index you created is first rate. It has helped many people, myself included, in acclimating to the whole idea of the Lambsfoot. Nice to hear from the real you.

    Great Eastern Cutlery announced that they are making a Tidioute #93 Ram's Foot Natural Oily Creek bone knife on their web-sight. I have been bugging GEC to make an #86 single blade Smooth Oily Creek Bone with a guitar shield knife. 4/12/2019 "Rock Around the Clock" is 65 years old. Guitar shield or not , I will be so thankful for this knife.
