    It’s a beautiful tree Gary! :thumbsup: Yours appears to be close to the same size as ours. It’s located in the back yard close to our deck. Here’s a photo of my Ashley’s Choice Lambsfoot taken on March 4th this year. Its a stark reminder of the different areas we all live in! :)

    Great pic, Ron! Ours is 60 plus years old. It actually bloomed a little early this year. I love the tree but raking up petals in the spring and leaves in the fall puts it on the high maintenance list!

    I totally agree on the high maintenance Gary! I planted ours in 1977!

    Thanks Dennis I'm really enjoying it. The one on the right is just an on off pedal for the Zoom to punch in and out of tracks when you screw up. On the left one is a Line 6 Pocket Pod the other a MXR prime distortion I'm running my Les Paul through them in a loop and it takes the place of an amp I live in a 1 bedroom 600sqft apt so space is hard to come by and those peddles take up very little. I have a Zoom G3Xn ordered for the amp and cabinet modeling so the Line 6 will be gone I may however keep the MXR the thing comes close to sounding like a Marshall JCM800 cranked up.

    Great stuff!
    I have a 50 watt Laney LC50, and just too big for me, probably sell it and look for a used Fender Blues Jr.
    Heard good things about the Line 6, pretty versatile, may look at those one of these days.

    Thanks for the rundown!

    There are a couple of phrases in that song I never could quite catch. It's only just occurred to me to google the lyrics.
    "...and your mind is moving low..."

    I hope this notice is ok. The "Forged in Fire" TV show will be featuring members of the military trying to duplicate WWII era Case knives tomorrow (May 8th) night.

    JP please tell me about that Rogers Lambsfoot I recently bought a Rogers Lambsfoot from a dealer in the UK that turned out to be a fiasco. I should have used the one that @Jack Black referred me to but they didn't have a Barlow with a Lambsfoot blade. They sent the wrong knife the first time made it "right" by telling me to keep the clip point and they sent me the Lambsfoot I had ordered. Anyway both these knives were very poorly built with the worst fit and finish I've ever seen. That's my experience so I wanted to ask you about yours the age, fit and finish everything.
    Thanks buddy.

    Here's the Lambsfoot
