    I have no desire to start an argument with you, but I find that difficult to believe. :)

    Sometimes a struggle.

    Just to give you an indication of where my mind is at and even considering I've recently remarried when I received an email with this in the subject line:
    Celebrate L'Amour with Opinel Knives
    I thought of Louis L'Amour. Hahahahaha

    Epoxy and royal blue chalk, believe it or not. The brass must be showing through to make it look green.
    I'd have sworn I just took a before picture of the fragmented pearloid cel handles, but apparently not. And I don't see an old pic either. It's a four-line Camillus.
    This shot looks a little bluer.

    Jeff and Frank it’s not like I don’t remember married life because I was for 14 years earlier in life it’s just that at this point WOW seems to be the perfect explanation. That’s if my wife agrees. lol!

    Whether she agrees or not depends on what WOW stands for:
    What o' Woman, or . . . . Woe of Woes! :( ;) :D

    Dad's Gum, and Gosh Golly Gee Willy Kerr's my Internet is S L O W tonight!
    Satellite Company must be routing the Internet to Seattle, WA, then to LA, to NYC, to London, England, back to Miami, Florida, (or possibly to Sydney, Australia then South Africa, and Antarctica, before Miami), to Salt Lake City, Ut, to Detroit, MI, and finally Boise, Idaho ... again ... (there may be a sight seeing trip to Anchorage Alaska, Dallas, Texas, Quebec, Canada, Nova Scotia, Greenland, Tokyo, Japan, Balorne, British Columbia, Mars, Venus, and Moscow, Idaho, in there too, for all I know.)

    Lost my horse buddy this morning, although he didn't belong to me I really developed a bond with this goofball. You've probably noticed he's in my avatar.Whenever I had to do work in his paddock or pasture he was always there with his head over my shoulder, with his little "whatcha doing" grunt. He'd follow me around like a puppy. This morning my bosses husband called and said tearfully "we have to put Tag down, Kathy said you should know" I went out without even my contacts in. Miss Kathy was pretty upset, they've had ol Tag over 20 years. She's had horses her whole life and has lost several through the years, doesn't make it any easier. They couldn't bear to be there when the vet had to put him to rest,so I stayed and held his head,talked to him and cried so at least someone he knew and was comfortable with was there in his last moments on this earth. Run free Tag,with wind in your mane, I know you pasture mates that have gone before were waiting to run with you in the fenceless plains of heaven.

    We share our ups and downs here amongst our friends, I ask a little prayer for my friend Kathy and her husband Bill they're taking this hard.[​IMG]
    Oh and he liked knives to, or maybe he just thought I had a treat.

    Very sorry to hear the loss of a old friend like Tag @Misplaced Hillbilly Dave...I just hope hes gone to that big back paddock in the sky ...theres a dust patch to roll in, a beach to stand in the water and a big bag of carrots everyday. Take it easy Mate.
