I never much liked crackerjack because of the peanuts cluttering up the carmel corn.

Went to change the bands, and the new clip set I'd fitted this morning had also broken! :mad: Think I'll be shopping elsewhere in future :thumbsdown:
But if Catty is really Celtic, it must be good!

Ever tried gummi bears for low-ricochet ammo?

Not a particularly fitting picture, except I admire Claudine even more than a slingshot. Even the $200 laser-sighted tactical survival slingshots.

Beautiful David :) I love to get out midweek, sometimes, in winter, you don't see another soul all day :thumbsup:



Thank you John, Lucy has only had limited sunlight today :rolleyes: Lot of branches littering my street today, but no trees down thankfully :thumbsup:

Have a good week my friend :thumbsup:



Looks like you're living well Kevin :) :thumbsup:

I don't really have the space to set up an indoor slingshot range, but I worked out that I could improvise one in my hall. I fitted some really light bands, to fire plastic ammo, and as I had all my work done by mid afternoon, I thought I'd have a practice session. All was going well until the pouch came apart, bit rubbish after around 30 shots o_O :(

Geez sorry for your luck Jack. :( You are more than welcome to come over to my range anytime you like. :) At least the HHB is doing well.

IMG_1949.JPG The Extraordinary Linus the Lambfoot and I were hanging out this afternoon when the mail carrier dropped this little feller off. Linus was excited to see someone from his hometown! IMG_1945.JPG Both sides look good. Very hard to see, but the words Sheffield and England appear on the pile side tang. IMG_1946.JPG Joseph Rodgers, * and + are on the mark side tang. And of course "THE LAMBFOOT KNIFE" is proudly stamped on the blade. What's that Linus? No, no - he might be "The Lambfoot", but he's definitely not the only Lambfoot! IMG_1951.JPG

You'd think so :rolleyes: Not sure about the aerodynamics of gummy bears, but not a bad idea Jer :D Like the pic :D :cool: :thumbsup:

Spending time with these two fellas from across the pond. :D

Very nice indeed Jon :cool::thumbsup:

Happy page 1776... America and Britain unite!

Nice to see that well-loved pair together for page 1776 Taylor :) Most of the Sheffield emigrants went later, but there may have been Sheffield cutlers who fought on the US side in the War of Independence, sympathies in Sheffield did not lay with the Crown, and Tom Paine was a popular figure there :thumbsup:

Nice to see Linus has a new pal Ben, congratulations :) :thumbsup:

Morning Guardians, hope your week is going OK :) :thumbsup:

I took the photo (posted yesterday) by the River Nidd on Saturday...

I wonder of they are called "brides" because it looks like they are out waiting for their husbands to return from the pub? :D

Yip John. I reckon you've nailed it there. :D

Absolutely Jack. I was planning on getting out today but I couldn't be bothered taking the risk of getting stuck on a railway platform 'cos some tree has blown over.
And bad pictures from Calderdale, especially Mytholmroyd. :(

Yes, there were a few fires going on at different spots. We saw some young families even having a "little picnic" around them :eek:
NOT for us, lol. We would skate for about 15 min then go inside the main building and sit by the fireplace for a while before going out again.
It was cold !!!

That sounds great, so long as your hardy enough. So long as there's no or little wind a quick snowy BBQ would be pretty neat.:)
Though your idea sounds a lot warmer. :thumbsup:

donn donn - Thank you David. Beautiful images of your hiking surroundings.

TEW Lamb.

Thanks Harvey. :thumbsup:

Those standing stones are intriguing, David; thanks for the pics and link! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:
I was looking for more info and found something about standing stones from the North York Moors National Park!

Lam Jack for me this week:

Your welcome. The north of England (along with Wales, Scotland and the south west of England) is covered in standing stones, cists, mounds, stone circles and ancient crosses.

What a great looking knife; I especially like the covers. Congratulations on the find.:thumbsup:

Well today is certainly a day to sit in front of the fire and finish off my parsnip soup I made the other day. :)

I think that was a wise decision David, there seems to be huge disruption to the rail network :( Here, it has been mostly heavy rain and wind today, then some sleet, and the sun even came out for 5 minutes, before it started raining again :rolleyes: That looks tasty David, I've just had some beans on toast, with Henderson's of course ;) :thumbsup:
