    First knife of 2021. I love the 119 and always wanted a brass version. It’s noticeably heavier. But definitely beautiful.

    Picked up a couple of these Cold Steels. I am 100 percent impressed. Sturdy, well made, and high value.

    Eldest son called this abandoned little gal in from her hiding spot. Momma left her, as it’s very dry and her milk is dry. We tried to nurse her with warm goat’s milk and wipe her rump to encourage. She lasted two days. Life is hard sometimes.

    A bit of dunking after work. It’s Friday! So far, so good. Put this eye candy in a tide pool to preserve the meat. A blessing for sure.

    Today is my youngest son’s 2nd birthday. After the party I took my two daughters to shine light at 11:00 to scoop crab. Crabs were all too small so I scooped a few Weke instead. Used the Kansbol to scale and clean them.

    The sharp spine makes scaling super easy.

    Nice and easy cutting to remove the gills and guts.

    This little cutie is a rescue also. We have had her for almost three weeks. So far so good. She is pretty strong and mobile.

    Now the next question is what to do as she gets older.

    My eldest making hat bands. She is learning from her Great Grandmother while Gma is still coherent. She has dementia and it’s a crappy degenerative thing.

    Sorry to hear about the dementia, it's an insidious ailment.

    As for the fawn, put a fluorescent collar on her and let the neighbors know she's off the menu. A friend of mine rescued a fawn 8 years ago that grew into a healthy doe and drops twins every year. Now she and her family group hang around and harass people for treats. Those rascals are picky - they'll do anything for corn but scoff at carrots. Sorry to tell you, you might be stuck with her for a while.

    I think you right!

    I will try. So far so good. She’s in her little corner of the house, and we take her outside to exercise.

    I think you may be right. My wife’s mother raised a doe and kept her for many years. Most everyone knew it was tame, as it would walk around town. The tourists loved it.

    He must have raised you right. It’s an honorable thing to take care of your parents.
