    Yikes! :eek: Stay safe Ron :thumbsup:

    Raining again here, and heavier rain forecast for tomorrow (and the rest of the week) :( I'll be off down to the market to see my pals. Have a good day everyone :thumbsup:

    Bedtime reading to my boys is about to commence. This is our second trip through this series as we refresh our memories for the most recent and serially releasing 4th book!

    How old are the boys? I used to love reading to my children (six sons, one daughter). I especially loved reading the Oz books to them. L. Frank Baum wrote many sequels to the Wizard of Oz. And when they were younger, the Robert McCloskey books. And Beatrix Potter, of course. And Alice in Wonderland. And T.S. Eliot's cat poems. Many more. Bedtime reading is fun.

    13, 12, 9, and 6 (7 on the 30th). They all love it and it is great. We started with little books when the oldest were young—Arnold Loebel, Bill Peet, C.S. Lewis, as well as some simple series like The Magic Tree House. We have also enjoyed the Redwall series, the Chronicles of Prydain series, all of the N. D. Wilson books, and my favorite—Tolkien. A surprise was Andrew Peterson’s Wingfeather Saga, which was really good.

    My wife reads to my daughter (4) while I’m reading to the boys and my youngest son usually goes with her and then comes in with us. I’m looking forward to when my daughter is old enough to join in the bigger books, as she LOVES to be read to. She loves Beatrix Potter and pretty much any animal book.

    Good ages. My wife read to them also. One of my granddaughers is turning two Friday. Maybe I can read to her and her sister soon. Hey, we're both celebrating birthdays on the 30th!

    Jack, thanks for your kind words my friend. I am ...uncomfortable but the drugs they gave me really helps. Going to be home bound for two weeks. I will be keeping my HHB close to me as you have suggested. My good luck charm.:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    That's a nice thing to do with your children Joshua :) :thumbsup:

    :cool: :) :thumbsup:

    Sorry to hear about your discomfort Bill :( I hope that you are a bit more comfortable today than you were yesterday. Rest easy with your Hartshead Barlow :) :thumbsup:

    Glad you're staying dry with Rosie Ron :) :thumbsup:

    That quote is more than two years old @Canfield! :eek: :D But since you ask, the covers on that knife are jigged bone :thumbsup:

    Hope everyone is having a good day :) I was down in the market for 7.30am today, and it has rained all day, but it was good to get out of the house and have some social contact :) :thumbsup:

    Thanks Jack! The storms have moved on for the most part. Now the colder weather is coming our way. That’s a great photo of your Hartshead my friend! :) :thumbsup:

    :D

    Thanks Dan.:)

    Thanks Jack.:)

    Thanks Kevin. I believe you got me started with your VW shots. I always like your creative composition.

    Jack I miss the early days when I would get so caught up in the archives like that. It's so awesome to have a few hundred pages to peruse that you have never seen. :):):)

    Have a great day y'all. IMG_5409.jpeg

    Good luck Chuck :thumbsup: Leeds just got moved to a higher restriction level, starting on Monday. I'm not actually sure what difference it will make to daily life :thumbsup:

    Me too Dwight, some great discussion in the index :thumbsup: That's a really cool pic my friend, it shows your Damscus Lambsfoot off to perfection, and reminds me of my days as an appentice 40-odd years ago, when I worked on a lot of machinery (we call it 'plant' here) like that :) :thumbsup:

    You're welcome. You're a new poster here @Canfield, why don't you introduce yourself? :thumbsup:

    Good evening Guardians. Finally finished up on my eye surgeries. Go back to the surgeon to have stitches removed, etc. Thank God it's pretty much over:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:. A couple of posts ago I asked if anyone knew what this plant (below) was. I figured it out...a Confederate Rose:D. Not a rose at all but a member of the Hibiscus family.:)
