    You're probably right about kids' current preferences, John, but those Cracker Jack plastic magnifying classes were SO cool!! ;):cool:
    Thanks for your Lam Jack remark. :)

    Yeah, my Cracker Jack purchase about a year ago was quite a disappointment. :(
    I appreciate your Lam Jack compliment. :)

    I've got a million of 'em, Harvey. :rolleyes:
    Lam Jack and I appreciate your always-generous praise. :)

    We'd have been good Cracker Jack pals, Jer; you could eat the caramel corn and I could eat the peanuts. :thumbsup:;)
    The gummy bears suggestion seems like a good one to me! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    :D You'd be lying in snow, Vince! :p

    Premium pair of lambsfoots, Taylor! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Congrats on the jigged bone Joseph Rodgers, Ben; looks like a winner!! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Astounding difference that a day made!! :eek:

    Thanks, José; most of those 2017 horn Guardians lambsfoots had extremely pleasing "feathering". :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Very fine file work on your lefty lambsfoot! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Your big rosewood is a handsome knife, Ron! :thumbsup::cool::cool: I hope your area gets a chance to dry out soon! :eek::(

    Truer words were never written, Ron! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    Exquisite ebony WCLF, John! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    That's a ravishing example, Ron! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Bill, I'm glad you got a refund, but I'm sorry the maker treated you so shabbily! :eek::(:thumbsdown:

    Magnificent African rosewood lambs food, Vince! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Cool photo, Dennis; that blond horn lambsfoot is distinctive! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Fab Five, @WDJ; thanks for sharing the group shot! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Such a recognizable and robust knife, David! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    Fascinating posts about your house and ancestors, Ben!! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: I wonder how many significant remodels your house has been through in 160 years?? Are there other "national" cemeteries in your area, or were the Scots the only ones who wanted to stick together in death?

    Hope you didn't get too much snow or too few degrees, Harvey.
    I can see that your Brookes and Crookes could get its hooks in you! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Beautiful sunny photo of a majestic knife! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Looks like you and your stag HHB have some healthy habits, FBC! :thumbsup::thumbsup:;)

    Reminds me of a recent experience where I wanted to choose a healthy snack. Should I select apple or banana or blueberry or clementine or grapes or orange??

    My rosewood HHB strongly advised blueberry, and who am I to argue??

    It is a big country, but I'm staggered by the weather variation in my own yard. It's 36 right now, and they're expecting a high of 79 for Sunday. (pea planting day, I hope)

    I see you're going with your formal slingshot, all in black today. Nice! :cool::thumbsup:

    Thanks for your kind words GT. Right now I'm trying to find someone to wok on the knife for a teardown and rebuild. Glennbad was my first choice but he has closed his books and can't take anymore work.

    Mostly, I just wanted to wish all the Guardians a Happy Valentines Day.

    Thanks for the compliments Gary! :) That’s a great photo of your Rosewood Hartshead Barlow. I’ve only got one problem with it! Now I’m in the kitchen looking for something sweet to eat! :D

    Same as me. Pepper, cheese, onions, herbs, brown sauce. :thumbsup:

    Ben there really interesting posts.:thumbsup: It's great you have that history of your forebears, especially from such a pivotal time of your country's history. But I've got to say (being of Scots descent myself) a lot of families in Scotland seemed to be enemies of someone of other. :D

    Thanks GT. That's a great shot of your rosewood HHB helping you out with one of life's difficult decisions.
    Which was a coincidence because yesterday my rosewood big'un helped me choose my healthy snack.:) :thumbsup:

    It annoys me even more when overseas customers get sold rubbish :mad: As you know, even picking them up directly from the factory, and even though they know I will definitely return them, I've been sold quite a few stinkers over the years, so what chance does someone in the USA have? Until they up their QC, they don't deserve the business, frankly :thumbsdown:

    I'm glad I picked the right day to go for a walk! :eek: :D :thumbsup:

    Great pics Gary :D I had a flapjack with my afternoon coffee :) I seem to have lost the pic I took, but it was something like this...:rolleyes:;):D:thumbsup:

    Thanks Jon ;) I've only tried the Uniphoxx, but I like them, and think they're very good value for money :) I just got one for my other half - in orange, with a glow-in-the-dark lanyard - hoping it's the one thing she doesn't manage to lose o_O :rolleyes: Thank you my friend, you too :thumbsup:

    Good grief, that's a HUGE difference! :eek: Oh yes! ;) Thanks :D :thumbsup:

    I've been meaning to asking @glennbad to mod something for me for about the past 10 years! His work is first rate, but I never really thought of anything to send his way :rolleyes:

    Great Hartshead pics fellers :cool: :thumbsup:

    Yiles, that's COLD dan! :eek: hope you're having a good day on the couch :) :thumbsup:

    Hate it when that happens! o_O Nice photo John, hope you're having a lovely day :) :thumbsup:

    Fantastic Ron :) :thumbsup:

    LOL! :D :thumbsup: Looks like a great walk David, it must be 30 years since I was last at the Cat & Fiddle, it looks to have changed a bit - or my memory is going! :rolleyes: :D :thumbsup:

    Hi Harvey, it started out quite nice here today, cold, but fine :) Then it started raining mid afternoon. The Met Office are still forecasting stormy weather for tomorrow, so I think we're going to go out for lunch, and then go to the cinema. Not the most exciting idea, and with very few photo opportunities, but it will hopefully beat getting soaked ;) How about you my friend, any plans? I hope everyone has a great weekend :thumbsup:

    It looks like you know how to turn a sow’s ear into a fine silk purse. I’m planning on a big celebration for the return of warmth:D
