    Thank you Harvey, some smoke blowing in from the camp fire :) :thumbsup:

    Hope so! :D :thumbsup:

    Hope it gets to you soon Dan, those are wonderful photos :) :thumbsup:

    Thanks a lot Ron, hope you're reunited with your Hartshead Barlows soon my friend ;) :thumbsup:

    Thanks for the pic Ed (I knew it wasn't one of mine) :) Harvey's doesn't have a crack, but I think you have every reason to complain. I hope it doesn't get worse. Wright's QC isn't good, nor do most of their dealers seem to have good eyesight, but I have often wondered if air travel might make a hairline crack worse? Thanks again for showing it :thumbsup:

    @Ramrodmb Fantastic looking wood on the spade handles you posted. @r8shell Any fruit not home grown is bland, it is normally kept in cold storage so it can be put on the shelves out of season. @JackBlack The supermarkets really started to flex their muscle in the sixties/seventies and that was the start of the demise of the High Street food vendors. When i was young we still had the milk being delivered off the horse and cart, and the butcher, fruit and veg man and baker still came to the back door everyday if you asked them too, and everything was fresh. " Ya there Missus", you knew who it was, and -TRY THIS TODAY-if mum was not at home, he would just come in, read the note on the kitchen table, take his money and leave the change, and gone on his way, leaving the back door as he found it. OPEN.

    I know what you mean mate, happier times. Even today, I can still remember the names of the tradesmen on our street, and those who called, they were almost like family. I delivered newspapers for several years as a kid, and with some houses, I'd take them in for the old folks and leave them on the table, so that they didn't have to bend down to pick them up. Doors were always left unlocked in those days :thumbsup:

    Extraordinary Adventures of Linus the Lambsfoot

    This is a short post--I have to work 8:00 to 5:00, Monday through Friday, but I'm taking photos during my lunch hour.

    Here's Linus with me at work:

    I think he may be a little bored, but we're watching Game 1 of the World Series tonight:

    I won't let him have too much beer.

    I'll have a long post probably Friday night. And then again Sunday night.
    Have a good evening, Guardians!

    Good evening, folks. I've largely been away from the forums due to a recent trip and a recent tragedy. I am now starting to get somewhat caught up, if I've missed any comments, please accept my apologies.

    Thank you so much for the kind compliments, fellas, they are always appreciated.

    I'm glad Linus made it to you safely, Vince! After my bungling of getting this underway, I am happy to see your fantastic post getting his travels kicked off.


    As mentioned, I recently took a trip after my brother surprised me with tickets and airfare to go see Wardruna (a Norwegian folk band) at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater outside of Denver, Colorado. It was a rather magical experience and despite the aforementioned tragedy that cast its pall over my trip, I am quite pleased that I got to go.

    I was able to get some fly fishing in after meeting up with another forum member here who showed me some of the ropes regarding such a sport. I was also able to tour the Coors Brewing facility in Golden, CO, (lot of terrific history there) and got to see some big skies, open country, and cool geological formations.

    Now for the tragedy - I hesitate to post this but I also know that the Guardians thread is as much a community thread as it is a knife thread and since I consider you all friends, I will share. I've perhaps posted about my pup, Saxon, maybe even one too many times. He was my best bud and I love him dearly. He fell ill shortly before I departed on my trip, exhibiting the same symptoms that he had back in May. Since he had pulled out of it and recovered fully despite the vets not knowing what was wrong, I had high hopes that he would do the same this time. Unfortunately, his condition continued to worsen and my wife took him to a neurologist and he passed on soon after. It turns out he had developed hydrocephalus for no reason that the doctors could fathom and that it was nothing short of a miracle that he didn't die back in May.

    In any case, I got the news while I was at Red Rocks and I broke apart as I poured one out for Saxon. Needless to say, I am rather crushed.

    In any case, this is still a knife thread and I've been carrying this Waynorth in Ebony today. Black seems a fitting color at the moment.

    @
    Pàdruig Thank you for sharing this with us. It is tough to lose a loyal companion.

    Red Rocks is a beautiful area. My cousin had a gallery in Old Colorado City and I visited the area a number of times.

    Sorry for your loss. Dogs are the greatest gift to man and that companionship is on of the purest things in the world. He will live forever in your heart and in the good memories you have of him.
