    @JohnDF, @CelloDan, @WHT, @Modoc ED, @cudgee, @mitch4ging,
    @cigarrodog, and @r8shell, thank you for sharing a bit about the motivation for your first lambsfoot. I'm struck by how many referenced the community of the Guardians thread. It seems that the community is bringing folks to the knife rather than the other way around. That's pretty cool and speaks volumes about the character of the folks who frequent this thread.

    @Jack Black, thanks for the impromptu giveaway. It was fun seeing the nature photos fly in. @5K Qs, congratulations! A deserving winner, for sure!

    @cigarrodog, happy early birthday! I hope your whole birthday week is splendid beyond all expectation. And, that you keep getting more cake. ;)

    Edit: Ack! I noticed at least one mention that somehow got missed regarding lambsfoot origin stories. I apologize if I've missed anyone else.

    My interest in the lambsfoot actually predates the Guardians.

    https://bladeforums.com/threads/i-wish-gec-would-make-a-proper-lambsfoot-knife.1078126/

    Still, I have to give Jack the credit. Were it not for his efforts, I doubt that I would have ever been aware the lambsfoot even existed. His enthusiasm is infectious, and that's three knives now -- the British Army clasp knife, the lambsfoot, and the Aitor Castor. I need to stop opening his threads, that guy's a menace! :D

    We don't have chipmunks around here, I mistook him for a baby squirrel.
    Chippy isn't just cute. He's adorable.

    This picture isn't helping my hunger either.
    I want Jack's pie for lunch and Harvey's cake for dessert.

    It being Thursday tomorrow, I'll be out of the house early, and headed to the market to help my pal out (I don't do much apart from swap jokes, go and buy cakes, and pass him a carrier bag now and then!) :) Think I'm going to carry this 'un tomorrow :) Have a good day folks, and once again, thanks to everyone who has helped to get us to 1500 pages :thumbsup:
