Afternoon Guardians, I've only been back home a few minutes, but I thought you guys might like to see a few hastily-taken snaps of my loot! :) :thumbsup:

LOL! :D Scotland is a spectacularly beautiful country, with warm, friendly people, and a rich history. As I have many friends there, I have occasionally thought that it would be a wonderful place to live :) But I figure they already have to put up with enough sassenachs (most of whom - the posh ones - live in Edinburgh)! o_O :rolleyes: :D :thumbsup:
Oh, Scotch whisky, golf, curling, haggis, kilts, bagpipes, scones, and Presbyterianism (my favourite Protestant sect--and I'm Catholic!)! What a land! And the heather and the hills! "My heart's in the highlands." Oh, and Burns. And Stevenson. Would love to visit.

Very nice John :) :thumbsup:

I'll try to get more, though it is bouncing with rain outside at the moment :( :thumbsup:

You'd love it Vince :) I am lucky to have spent a fair bit of time in Scotland, but there are plenty of parts of it I have never been to, and still await exploration :thumbsup:

Carried these 2 TEWs Lambfoot today so I thought that I would put them up in here too . I carried the Top one in the morning to a hospital to be with a Grandson when he had ankle surgery .




Harry

Hope your grandson will be OK Harry, a great pair of TEWs there :thumbsup:

Hey Jack, If I missed the email about these pleeeeease pm me.
I think I might have drooled a little.....and not because there is a beer in the picture. :D

Have you checked your Spam folder Kevin? If it's not there, please PM me and I'll send it again :thumbsup:

Good evening Guardians!

Great pic Barry, great to see you here :) :thumbsup:

Morning Guardians, the rain is easing off here, so I'm going to make a dash for the post office, do some shopping, and possibly get a chance to take a pic or two :) See you later folks, hope everyone has a great day :thumbsup:

And still pretty thinly populated, according to Penelope Keith.

Today marks 95 years ago that the brave George Mallory died on Mt. Everest near the summit .
The above artifacts were found many years later with his remains and include a large Lamb Foot knife, made bt W.E.Oates. My estimation makes the knife 4 1/3 inches. R.I.P.
A useful knife for the outdoors I'd say.

Old Engineer Old Engineer - Harry I hope everything goes well with your grandson. The last time I sat in a hospital waiting room I left a brand new Mudbug on the armrest of the chair. No doubt it made someone's day! :)

Beautiful Lambs folks. Have a great weekend. View attachment 1141199
Oh that must have ruined your day, eh?
Beautiful image of your Lamb, as usual. :cool: :thumbsup:

Thanks for posting that Charlie. A great remembrance and useful bit of Lambsfoot history for today. I'm super happy you're on the mend and posting again. :cool: :thumbsup:

Nice to see you back Charlie! Really interesting post with the Mallory knife; a shame that climbing Mt. Everest has become something of a 'fad', ending in folks dying on the mountain.

John, I am with you! Let's go wet a line!
