    Thanks Greg :) Interesting idea :thumbsup:

    Well done Ed, a fantastic act of generosity :) Congratulations John, beautiful knife :) I had understood that the Waynorth knives would be launched at the annual GEC Rendezvous, the Hartshead Barlows were due out in May. Wright's were two weeks late, and GEC were a couple of months ahead of schedule. Nice to have the wealth of Lambsfoot knives, but unfortunate in terms of budgeting.

    Hey Jack! Where've you been?! :) :thumbsup:

    Thanks Dave, great pic! :D :thumbsup:

    You're a class act Ed :) :thumbsup:

    That's good to hear buddy :) :thumbsup:

    Thanks a lot Preston :) :thumbsup:

    Ooh, you got patinaed bolsters?! :cool:

    I was quite surprised to read about the cull Rachel, I've not seen one yet up north. Somebody yesterday was telling me that there are more Peregrine Falcons in New York than anywhere else in the world, incredible :) :thumbsup:

    Such a cool pic Dwight, you're an agile photographer my friend :) :thumbsup:

    I'm sure you'll remember Corgi and Dinky too! :D :thumbsup:

    Gorgeous Taylor :) :thumbsup:

    :D :thumbsup:

    That story would fill a book on it's own Dennis! :rolleyes: :D ;) :thumbsup:

    Thanks pal, nice pic, and an excellent piece of kit :) I don't see so so many emergency location devices (of all types) on sale here these days in outdoor shops, folks seem to think their mobile/cell phones will save them :rolleyes: Heck, I can walk 100 yards up the road and not be able to get a signal, let alone in the Scottish Highlands! o_O :rolleyes: :thumbsup:

    I'm still waiting for summer! :D :thumbsup:

    A mighty fine looking ebony Jack. :)
    Thank you, my friend.
    Can you imagine when we were kids having to pick one toy out of the myriad of toys today?:eek: :confused:;)

    One of my favorite matchboxes was a BP exploration vehicle. Quite tall, with many wheels, and wedge-shaped forward. It negotiated the back yard pea-stones with ease.
    I've been looking for a toy old school London taxi, with the open luggage platform in place of a front passenger seat.
    I can't find any toy car pictures. Here's old Snubby when young, shiny, and useless.

    That would be a really nice collector for sure, I wouldn't mind owning a full-size one for running around town in. :)

    I can't imagine wanting what passes for toys nowadays, dang-nabbit. Give me a Red Ryder bb gun and some plastic soldiers.
    This old Sears is fun, too. It still works, but I should oil the joints.

    Thank you. I had extra "help" with that photo. :rolleyes:

    I do! I was eating fish & chips, and I somehow managed to get malt vinegar on the bolsters. ;)
    I find that Falcon Fact incredible, too. In fact, I don't believe I can cred it at all.

    Happy Friday, Jack. :)

    Not so much budgeting as it is timing.
    I am an hourly employee, which is weird for a teacher. One of the curses of working in alternative education, we are not contracted like other teachers. So, I just don't get paid during the Summer vacation. We easily survive on my wife's salary but I do tighten the spending a bit during this time, mostly out of respect for my wife. I have time off, I'm not getting paid, so it seems "spoiled" to spend a lot of money on hobbies.

    Do you ever get a real Summer there?

    Oh ya, those were the days. Every kid had a bb gun and a pocket knife.
    I made sure that both of my kids also grew up with bb guns and pocket knives. :cool::thumbsup:

    Thank you Guardians for the lovely comments on my new Waynorth Lambsfoot. Most importantly, thanks for helping me give ED a big thank you for his generosity. Of course I'll be carrying it today (as I did last night) to get to know it better and be able to give my thoughts on it. Lastly, it is amazing to finally have an EBONY Lambsfoot. Jack can go ahead and pick whatever covers he wants next year now. ;) :p :D

    My grandfather travelled a great deal for business, and he brought me one from England in the 60s. I was sure it was long gone, but a quick trip to the basement revealed I was mistaken.
