    Without going into politics which we thankfully don't discuss in The Porch it's hard to explain, but...
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-45225406

    This would effectively make ANY forms of steam traction in the UK unviable. :mad:

    So when you publish that book we all want you to write, will I find it in 'Biographical' or 'True Crime/Murder Mystery'...? :D

    You know what it's never occurred to me before but from that angle that file work is really reminiscent of carvings on ancient crosses.

    Crikey Preston! Sorry the video didn't work but I appreciate the effort. :thumbsup:
    You remind me of the joke made by a Scottish comedian Billy Connelly about Scottish weather.
    "There's only two seasons in Scotland. June. And Winter".

    I know where a couple of weeks late but in Europe there is the story of 'The Ice Saints'.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ice_Saints
    Not sure if they made it over to Colorado though. I'd say stay safe but I'm sure your all sorted for this sort of thing. :thumbsup:

    Thanks for the suggestion GT, I hadn't thought about that. I've been thinking of trying a bit of whittling but didn't know what to whittle. But I wouldn't like to try a full size one, not with my sharpening skills... :rolleyes::D
    I hope your Man Jack is serving you well. :thumbsup:
    BTW, what's a button spanner?

    Yip it's British slang for something that's rubbish but when it came to be used in that context I don't know. Of course here in the UK 'pants' are underwear. What you call pants in the US we call trousers.

    Aye we kinda like it to... :D:thumbsup:

    I've decided my tin is to become a tinder box :thumbsup:

    I remember a Desmond Bagley villain who had a coal fire in his grate in his London penthouse, and our hero said, "Isn't that illegal [,you arrogant upper-class twit]", but no, the villain had had some sort of scrubbers installed to clean his emissions to a legal level.
    I think I've read all Bagley's books, and I'm pretty sure he's dead. Too bad.

    Thanks for the compliment Gary! :) Handy as a pocket on a shirt! :eek: While the pile side is not as prime as the mark, I think it’s still some very nice Sambar! :D

    Good morning all! I am really starting to worry about Dennis @mitch4ging . Hopefully he's just in a power failure mode and nothing more serious.

    The Lambsfoot Day officially begins when Jack posts. :D

    It looks so fancy. Congratulations. :thumbsup: :cool: :thumbsup:

    That seems to be a popular use for the tin. Excellent picture. :thumbsup: :cool: :thumbsup:

    All you guys posting your Lambsfoot knives and books have got me wanting to read a bit this Summer. I just ordered my first book in a while. Stay tuned...

    That's a great idea and cool photo of it. Hope you both enjoyed the ride. :)

    It is quite beautiful on both sides. :thumbsup: :cool: :thumbsup:

    Looks like a most useful knife, Rachel. :thumbsup: :cool: :thumbsup:

    I'm hoping he's okay too.
    I'm sure that no tornado is going to get the best of that tough 'ol cowboy.

    Dwight, I think you were real lucky you woke up and made the decision you did. Monarch Pass, at night, is a scary ride!!
    Kudos to all, Jack, Taylor and Vince. What great people here.
    Thanks Jack, that horn is such a lovely knife...a standout among your many! You do a great job of photographing the sights and scenes of your travels around your area.
    That's a great addition to your rapidly growing collection, Jose.
    Thanks for the link, David, I hadn't heard of the Ice Saints, but, I think they could find a home here. This time of year any snow we get here is gone rather quickly...this amount will take a few days. Great use of the Lambsfoot tin!
    That is just such an excellent knife!
    Me too, Dwight, tornadoes, power outages and flooding in and around OKC. My thoughts are with him and others in that area.

    Morning Guardians, the sun is out and the melt has started! It's going to be a muddy mess for a few days...
    I'll have the Senator with me today.

    Looks a little chilly out there. I'm sure the dog is going to love it though.

    I like the pile side on this Ironwood 19 as much as I like the show side. I love the grains and twisted streaks of blonde and red.

    I like the way they made all the show sides so "showy" and the pile sides more "plain". Seems more traditional that way. :cool:

    Jack, I was thinking if I had Daughters maybe they would remember, but it looks like maybe not. :(
    Thank you no problem, my friend:thumbsup::D
