That shield and jigged bone are so cool. :cool::thumbsup:

I can't help it... it's just too nice not to carry. :D

I see you have your own Micarta beauty today. :cool::thumbsup:

That's cool too Mike :) :thumbsup:

They're easily confused ;) :D :thumbsup:

Thanks John and Jack! I’m really impressed by this smallish Queen-made pen knife.

Well, I got some of the white :poop: on my car:

That was about midnight, but it's still there and we are without power in 19 degree weather. :eek::mad::thumbsdown:

Best wishes to you and others in the path of this one, hope you all have a way to stay warm, and hopefully they can get your power back as soon as possible.

I grew up in TX, and remember a time in the early '70s when we would get at least one ice storm a winter, often times 2 or 3, and lose power. I still hate ice storms with a passion to this day.

Easy to stay warm with so much love in one house. Enjoy your time with the girls!
So true! It’s tough to have 3 grandkids 800 miles in one direction, and 2 with a third on the way 1000 miles in the opposite direction. And we can’t leave here because all four of our parents~all in their 80’s~ are here.
I see the day coming when one or more of them could be moving in with us.
But whenever the girls in Georgia have week off of school, I’m likely to head down and get them! And pre-covid, we flew and got them, then all flew out to Colorado to all be together. We’ve done that twice, and had a third planned for last year that we had to cancel.
French Toast - easy, good, and fun to eat! I like your NYKC edition of the Schrade Scrimshaw. OH
Thank, Bruce!
Carrying my little Otter hippekniep again today.
Took this pic yesterday on our walk.
The chickadees all appeared healthy and well fed. :) ( plenty of folks bringing them lots of food this winter )

Of all the freeloaders that visit my feeders, the Black Capped Chickadees are the friendliest. They’re the only ones who eat while I’m right there, but never got one to land on my hand!
This year, unfortunately, we have not seen our usual Rose Breasted Grosbeaks! We usually have four or five pairs all winter.

Very good... repeat as needed. :D
But we've run out of football for a while, right? ;)

Thanks. It was the first thing that popped into my head when your question made me stop and really look at the sheepsfoot. o_O

Thanks! I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that it was weird rooting for Brady at first after rooting against him for 20 years, sports can be weird!:D
Ain't that the truth! :eek::rolleyes:

Today’s favourite, the warmth of a red bone canoe.

Have a great day all:thumbsup:
Sublime old canoe! :thumbsup::cool::cool::thumbsup:
I have one very similar, and I think it's the only knife I own that I can't bring myself to use (yet). ;)

Thanks for the kind words my friend, the Bantam was a gift from former member @scruffuk, who lives near me :) Makes for a very slim package :thumbsup:
Thanks for the story, Jack. :):thumbsup:

Today I carry this Portuguese Curel "Bandido" in acrylic.;):thumbsup:
The acrylic handles are very handsome, José and Mike! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

Safe travels and good times with the kids! :):thumbsup::cool: Do they have winter coats??

Superb pair, Steve; unbelievable bone on your Case! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

By special request (of JohnDF JohnDF ): SAMMICH CLEAVING!! :D ;) :thumbsup:

Thanks Gary, I reckon it's always been a Spearpoint, but just a little longer and fuller :thumbsup:
It looks good! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: I was hoping for an exciting story on a cold winter night, but life doesn't always provide those "on demand". ;)

Nice Viper, Dan. Mine was gifted to me by @Fixall. It's going in my pocket today along with my HHB.

This is an old photo, but I’m carrying this single-clip #15 today. Something red seemed appropriate. :thumbsup:
Rousing, Cupidy red, Barrett! :cool::cool::thumbsup:
Glad you enjoyed my "cries for help"! :rolleyes: Shoveling snow has rattled my brain, and too much cold drives a man insane. ;) Of course, you've been having much colder weather than I have. :eek:

Hunkered down waiting for warmer weather. Might be a while.:eek:

First-class Barlow, Les! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

It's Katalox, or commonly called Mexican Royal Ebony.
Thanks, John; I learned something new! :)
