    It is Thursday tomorrow, so I will be off down to my local market for a few hours 'early-doors', and I'll be taking these two along to show off to the regulars down there, before heading to the post office ;) Have a great day folks :thumbsup:

    Charlie’s Lambsfoots looks like they are going to be great if that bone is anything to go by!

    Nice work on the Label too Charlie :thumbsup:

    Might do the same. Final round of US Open that day. May catch a little. And enjoy my family.
    Hope you have a good one.

    That sounds fantastic. I enjoy many types of beer, but fine cask ales are my favorite. I'm going to have to find time soon to head down to the local English-inspired brewery that serves their beers from proper hand-pull beer engines. Their bitter is quite tasty.

    I'm quite certain that everyone will love the Barlows. :thumbsup:

    Thanks for the compliment on the covers. I got a good one for sure. Matter of fact, so did everyone else who got one. :D

    Thanks! I'm still thinking about hot links, too. That pack (now gone) reminded me of how much I enjoy them. I'm able to get good examples of Louisiana hot links here, but haven't found any acceptable versions of smoked Texas ones, though. So, I think I'm going to have to take matters into my own hands. I spent some time yesterday tracking down a recipe. It'll probably be at least a couple of weeks before I can try it, but it's on deck for sure. :)

    Yup. It'll do. It'll do very nicely. :thumbsup:

    Is this the Guardian's version of "Who wore it best?" ;) :D

    Seriously, though, both look splendid. And, so nice to see your Unity lambsfoot. That's one of my favorites of yours. Such class.

    I don't care what @Prester John says, it looks refreshing to me! But, then again, I also live in California... :p

    Overcast is my choice Jack and I'm not sure I've ever experienced too much wet weather. Guess I should live in Leeds or Seattle :D

    Thank you Harvey for your kind words.

    :eek: That explains a lot :eek:

    Yes that splendid specimen would definitely do. Beautiful.

    Spectacular photos Barry. Stunning.

    Same here. Between Dylan's and Greg's I have had a terrible craving flung on me. But every time I weaken I think about a knife for that price. :D

    @Jack Black - The barlows take my breath every time you post em. Happy hunting tomorrow Jack.

    John and Dave, thanks for confirming the wisdom of not attending spouse class reunions. :)
    Vince, you're not getting me excited about attending my own, but I suspect it will be much more laid-back than the ones you mentioned. It will be at the high school, probably primarily in the commons/lunch room, with some kind of catered dinner. The whole event is limited to 4-8pm (but 4 hours with lots of folks I never really knew and a few that I USED to know could be an ordeal :rolleyes:).

    Thanks, Harry; I was convinced that was your opinion. :)

    Barry, you're killing it with the camera on your new phone! :eek::thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Thanks for the encouragement, Dwight and Vince. :) But recently, Dwight, your alluring alliteration allocation is almost always alarmingly aloft!! :D:thumbsup::cool:

    Dandy stag doubles, Steve! :cool::cool::thumbsup:
    Yeah the drops can be pricey, although my doc has got me off some very expensive "brand names" and onto much more reasonably priced generics. Before all this recent eye situation, I was the world's worst eye drop user - I could go through a half-bottle of Visine just to get a drop into each dusty eye. But I'm getting WAY better with practice over the past 6-8 months. :rolleyes:

    Congrats on the temporary retirement, FBC! ;) Best wishes on landing in a better spot. :thumbsup::thumbsup:
    Speaking of music and temperature > 100˚F:


    Thanks, Jack; getting teased makes me feel right at home. :rolleyes:
    I like my rotation schedule, and it's nice when each of my lambsfoot knives returns after 6 weeks. :cool:

    Thanks for the story, Jack; gotta pass this on to wife and daughter! :):thumbsup::cool:

    Great photo of Duncan; he's a two-fisted lambsfoot user! :thumbsup::thumbsup::D Glad you gents had a great time. :cool::cool::) @Campbellclanman Duncan, we're looking forward to your promised photos! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Couldn't agree more, Dave! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    I tried to get Black Jack interested in some mathematics:

    Well said, Ray. The behavior you mention was something I noticed very quickly when I first stumbled on this subforum, and it's the reason I'm still here! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Good to see you back, Preston :):cool:, but I wish you'd been able to get the computer problems resolved. :(:thumbsdown:
    Great photo of that Snake in the Garden! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    ETA: Preston, I apparently quoted this but neglected to respond when I first put this post together. Thanks for the kind words. :) There are many examples of fine folks here on The Porch that we can all emulate! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    What a remarkable pair of barlows, Jack! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Impressive close-up, Jack! :cool::cool::thumbsup: Is that Old English font in the blade etch?

    Thanks, Greg. :) Black Jack left Wright's that way, and the crack seems very stable so far.
    Your horn (and all the 2017 Guardians knives) is incredible! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Harvey, you and Taylor are cracking me up with your flatulence fun. :p
    Your AC is Amazingly Captured in that pic!! :eek::thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Ron, your butt crack crack cracked me up!! :p:D:thumbsup: Looking forward to hearing about an Ironwood name! :cool::cool::thumbsup: Beautiful pic of your damascus ironwood! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Is that somewhere on YouTube?? :thumbsup::thumbsup::rolleyes:

    Good Evening Guardians.
    5:30 at night and it's still about 100 degrees here. :(
    Hot dogs, chili, and beer for dinner... Summer time foods. :D

    Speaking of snake in the garden... I was watering the posies about two hours ago and look who was taking in the beauty of the garden blooms. Just under 7 feet. The largest king I have ever seen in this state. IMG_3074.jpeg
