    Oh I did put a dab of oil in the joints and no black gunk. Usually if I do this and there is some gunk then I flush them good.

    I THINK I almost caught up! Just my PMs and emails, and the rest of The Porch now! :eek:

    Hope everyone is having a great weekend :) Herself is away, and so I took myself off to North Yorkshire to check out a few antique shops. After encountering The Most Evil Thing In The Universe in Harrogate, I went for a coffee in my regular Harrogate watering hole. I was hoping for some beans on toast, but when I asked, the new waitress looked at me like I'd asked for the moon, and told me the chef hadn't come in yet o_O Bit of a strange carry-on, but the coffee was good at least :thumbsup:

    I looked around for somewhere else to eat, but Harrogate is one of those swanky North Yorkshire places where people appear not to eat ordinary food :confused:

    I headed on to Knaresborough, but it was no better there, and I ended up having to get something to eat in a chain pub :rolleyes: The sausages look better than they tasted! o_O

    I took Charlie Lamb to see the view from the castle before heading back to Leeds :thumbsup:

    You guys have ruined me. I see lamb feet everywhere! (note the non-parallel edges)

    @5K Qs Here ya go GT. My original post was supposed to be a pun (1 tip + 2 lamb tips). Then I realized I had 3 word tips in the photo. ;)

    @mitch4ging Thank you Dennis. Love the patina on the Lambsfoot and the tin it rests in. Have a good weekend.

    @Foddering When’s the coffee table book coming out? Great image.

    @@Jack Black Thank you Jack. And thank you for sharing your day in images. Very enjoyable.

    Good Morning Guardians.

    Not the Porcine Prepper? :eek:

    You're scaring me Jack. I have a standing invitation to visit my now British cousin in London, but how can I get from Heathrow to his flat without risking the perils of London's congestion?

    Thank you Harvey :) :thumbsup:

    LOL! :D Not easy I'm afraid, timing is essential, and if you need to go into central London I'd recommend the 'tube'. Both @herder and @btb01 have done it in recent years, hopefully without too many problems :thumbsup:

    Thank you, Jack, :thumbsup: At least your breakfast had beans much better than my peanut butter and jam on toast. :p

    Thanks Dwight! Gorgeous AC my friend! :) :thumbsup:

    Gary your Union Jack has some nice grain on its pile side! :) :thumbsup:

    That’s a great old knife Jack! :) :thumbsup: I’ve never really thought that I would like an additional blade on my Lambsfoots. To me part of the allure of the pattern is the slim pocket friendly feel they have. :) Of course I’ve been known to be totin more than one knife on occasion! ;) :D

    Thanks my friend! :) :thumbsup:

    Oh, it was lunchtime by the time I got that Dave :eek: Fortunately I had some marmalade on sourdough toast before heading out ;) :D :thumbsup:

    Thanks Ron :) Yes, I agree. I'd rather have a secondary knife than a secondary blade! :D ;) :thumbsup:

    Is it just me, it seems I have more success sharpening my Lambsfoot on ceramic stones over diamond? :confused:

    Many thanks Dave :) I prefer ceramic stones over diamond, try to use the latter as little as possible :thumbsup:
