    Thanks pal :) I really can't Dave! :D I remember, one year, when I was about 7, unbeknown to me at the time, my grandfather won a couple of thousand Pounds on the Football Pools. Not long after, on Christmas Day, me and my sister were unwrapping our presents in the early hours, and we got the toys that were advertised on the TV, a Johnny Seven , and my sister got a Tiny Tears doll. We thought Santa had dropped them off at the wrong house! :D :thumbsup:

    Nice pic my friend :) A classy choice I'd say! ;) :D :thumbsup:

    Young, shiny, useless, but good-looking! :D :thumbsup:

    Yep, pretty cool :cool: :thumbsup:

    :cool: :thumbsup:

    Hey Jack, great to see you here :) Hope you're good my friend :thumbsup:

    LOL! :D That's a pretty cool way to get the patina Rachel :) :thumbsup:

    But a bloke in the street told me....! :D :thumbsup:

    Thanks John, hope you're having a good day :) I understand that my friend, my girlfriend is a college lecturer, salaried, but her hourly rate is less than a check-out girl! :rolleyes:

    1976 was pretty good...and last year! :D :rolleyes: :thumbsup:

    It looks great John, congratulations :) Another big cheer for Ed :) :thumbsup:

    That's cool :) I sent one to a member for their kid a few years back, but I can't remember who :thumbsup:

    All my Wright's Lambsfoot knives have a canted blade.
    The Barlow is hardly noticeable, but the Ironwood and Rosewood are very noticeable.
    It is one feature that I really like and find very useful for detailed cuts with the tip of the blade.
    I also assumed, and thought I read somewhere, that it was one of the defining features of the Lambsfoot knife.
    I'm not saying it's good or bad, just a quick observation I made when I opened the Waynorth Lamb for the first time.

    Thanks for the interesting link Greg :) I'm afraid they don't like wild and crazy ideas in Sheffield though! :rolleyes: o_O :D :thumbsup:

    Great pic Dwight :) :thumbsup:

    Terrific twosome Preston :) :thumbsup:

    Arrgh! My eyes! :p :D :thumbsup:

    Great choice Ron ;) :D :thumbsup:

    They are different aren't they?

    :) :thumbsup:

    Yeah, it's used LOGICALLY in the US! :rolleyes: I once had to point out the difference to a poster who thought that George Orwell was working class because he went to a 'public school'! o_O :D :thumbsup:

    Yikes! Hope not! :eek: :D Great patina on your Wright :) :thumbsup:

    They're addictive! :eek: :thumbsup:

    Bad Dad! :D :thumbsup:

    They are alike in many ways and different in many others.
    One thing I am enjoying about the Waynorth is that the handle shape, length, and thinness allows it to ride vertically in the pocket with ease. So, there's no slip required to comfortably carry it in the front pocket. It's been riding upright all day while I did yard work and helped the Wife clean house for company. A very cool feature that I enjoy very much. :cool::thumbsup:

    It's been raining here all day, but I had a pretty good day nonetheless :) Lunch of Beer-battered sausages, colcannon, and chimchurri roasted peppers, and coffee and a blueberry croissant mid afternoon :)

    I even got to have a couple of pints on my way home :) :thumbsup:

    Hope everyone is having a great day :) :thumbsup:

    @dc50 - Yeah Dave - What Preston said! I really like that "impasto" technique. Didn't know what you called it but I knew I like it. :D Thanks PJ for the education.

    Thanks Jack. Glad to see the book arrived!


    Have a great weekend Guardians. IMG_2475.jpeg

    Thanks to you...
    My pleasure, Dwight:thumbsup::)
    Dave she might have been doing her own thing. The creative process takes into account all our past experiences and the outcome can be brand new. Mixed media takes all that into account. It can encompass, impasto, decoupage, paper mache...the mixing sawdust or sand with glue/paint just about anything an artist might use to achieve the effect he/she wants.
    Oh my, she has captured the enormity of the Rockies in that scene so well. Kudos to her!:thumbsup:

    Amazing. Beautiful. Linda has tremendous talent. And she is extremely fortunate that she wasn't struck by traffic while she was painting it. :eek: :D :D :D :eek: :D :D :D

    Wow! You must have been over the moon that Christmas!

    That's interesting. I can see why they'd like NYC. It's an all-the-pigeons-you-can-eat buffet! :D

    My HHB has a step down. It's a purely cosmetic thing, in my opinion, since it snaps open and closed like a bear trap. :cool::thumbsup:

    Steal away, my brother! :thumbsup:
    "artistic gift of originality" That is very kind, Dwight, others just call me weird. ;):D

    I am looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

    That's a good'n , Vince!! [​IMG]
    Btw, my vote is for the Porsche.... I have a thing for those flat motors.

    My pic from yesterday. I went with the wisdom of my fellow Guardians and took Betty for a spin.

    Thanks, fellows for the compliments. I'm a self-taught artist and as Dave says, I generally just do my own thing.

    Linda :)
