    I had just the same experience here mate. Those Black Jacks were 4 for a penny when there were 240 pennies in a pound. After decimalisation here in 1971, there were only 100 pennies in a pound, but you still only got 4 Black Jacks for your penny o_O

    And classy! :cool: :thumbsup:

    Thanks a lot Charlie, hope your TEW serves you well my friend :) :thumbsup:

    Good luck Ed :thumbsup:

    Such a beauty :thumbsup:

    Great pics Dylan, have you fished the creek yet? :thumbsup:

    Hope you're finding returning to work OK Duncan, and that you continue to get fitter and stronger my friend :) Great to see your AC there :) :thumbsup:

    Very nice :) :thumbsup:

    Hope the scans go well Charlie :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

    Ace pic Mark :) :thumbsup:

    Looking good John :thumbsup:

    Fantastic photos Dan :cool: :thumbsup:

    Thanks a lot Kevin, that's a cool wood on wood pic pal :) :thumbsup:

    Stellar pic Vince :) :thumbsup:

    Hi Guardians, I've just got in after my 7 hour stint on the open-air market. It's cold here today, but dry at least, and I was wearing more clothes than I would have in my winter mountaineering days! :rolleyes: I took 2 flasks of my leek and potato soup to share, and my Hartshead Barlow got lots of work slicing fruit cake and ginger cake :) I didn't find much worth buying, but it was a great crack :) Got the heating on, and I'm slowly warming up. I usually go out to eat on Thursday evenings, but this week, I'm on my own, and looking forward to beer and pizza ;) Hope everyone is having a good day :thumbsup:

    I hope we NEVER get decimalisation. They threatened us with it decades ago.
    One thing I hate about buying European beers is that I often get bottles that have only 11.2 ounces of beer. I always feel gypped! The half-litres are an okay size, though.

    Thanks!

    Beer and pizza sure go well together.
    I like the patina on your blade and bolsters, but I'm still trying to keep mine "clean"!

    That's Charlie's very classy vintage Joseph Rodgers :thumbsup:

    Yeah, thankfully, despite the currency being decimalised here in 1971, a lot of the old measurements still exist thankfully (I can still buy a 20fl oz pint and get a pound of apples in the market), for now at least :rolleyes:

    Thanks Vince, I figure I can always Flitz the patina off ;) I am looking forward to the beer and pizza! :D :thumbsup:

    I believe that knife is a vintage Joseph Rodgers & Son of Sheffield and the knife Charlie based his lambfoot on.

    Thank you for the lesson gentlemen! I’ll be doing more reading on them. A little late, but grateful to own a little piece of cutlery history.

    Thanks John! :)

    I appreciate it Jack. It's good to be back! :)

    Thanks Ed! No problem, I should have reported in sooner! :)

    Thanks Dylan! Linus is a fine companion! That Ebony Waynorth is also a dandy companion! :):thumbsup:

    Today I'm carrying two from Wright's. I've dubbed them the "Patina Brothers"! :D

    The Extraordinary Adventures of Linus the Lambsfoot Part 2

    Fellow Guardians, here is an update on some of the sites that Linus has seen since I received him.

    These photos were taken in Murfreesboro Tennessee on Nov 8. Pam and I had to go to the Nashville area to meet our daughter. She was going to put her townhome on the market and we went to help her pack some items and return them to our home for storage. I wanted to take Linus by and show him where I keep my "Bucket List"! :) Before the original bucket was burned by arson this huge bucket sat in an open shed which would have allowed for much better photographs. I hope the photographs and the description plate can give y'all an idea just how big this thing actually is. :thumbsup:

    After these photos were taken and the following Monday is when my need for a new phone became a factor. A word to the wise and something I did not understand fully before. Turn on the backup function of your cell phone and keep it backed up to the cloud or whichever method you choose. It can save you some headaches. :)

    The Extraordinary Adventures of Linus the Lambsfoot Part 2

    The next leg of Linus's adventures all occur in Washington DC. I returned to DC with my daughter after our visit in the Nashville area. Little did I know at that time that a virus would follow me and prevent me from fully enjoying the trip. I was able to take Linus to see some of the sites. Please understand that after a dozen or so visits to DC I am still not comfortable displaying a knife in public. There might not anything ever come of it but I guess I'm just paranoid. :)

    This following photo of the US Capital Building was taken after our long drive from Tennessee to Washington DC. It was taken from the rooftop of my daughters apartment building. The photo of the Washington Monument was taken the next day, also from the rooftop.

    That's a BIG bucket, Ron! Something like that should be here in Texas!
    Good to see Linus. :thumbsup:

    The Extraordinary Adventures of Linus the Lambsfoot Part 2

    These are some more places that Linus was able to visit while in DC. Most of these will need no descriptions and the photos were taken over several days. Since I was a little under the weather I would have my daughter park or drop me off close to the areas I wanted to visit so I could make a quick visit. Not to mention the fact that it was freezing cold a couple of days with the wind chill factored in. :):thumbsup:

    The Lincoln Memorial: There are always so many people here it is hard to get a photo without a person in it.

    The Washington Monument:

    The Jefferson Memorial: They are doing repairs to the outside roof of the memorial. It is still open so I just made a quick photo and moved on.
    [​IMG]

    Bureau of Engraving and Printing: I'm not exactly sure what goes on in this building but I thought it would make for a quick photo. ;)
    [​IMG]

    The Trump Towers: This one is easy to get to and the wait was not bad to ride the elevator. I took a couple of photos from the watch tower. This is the fourth tallest building in DC.

    Finally this is where I spent the better part of four days in DC with Linus in my pocket and Maggie on my lap! :D

    I flew home to Tennessee this past Sunday. I mailed Linus to my home because I didn't have any checked bags on this trip. I received him back yesterday evening. I plan to take him to see some more of my local area this weekend so there will be more posts. I will put Linus in the mail on Monday morning for the next leg of his journey to visit Greg @WhittlinAway. :D :thumbsup:
