    Thanks, and congratulations on the covid-free-ness. I'm afraid we are in for a world of hurt this winter. Against recommendations, around 3 million Americans flew this weekend. They and many more will spend the week visiting relatives for the Thanksgiving holiday. It may be a very sad Xmas for some.

    You just make sure you're not one of them. It looks absolutely horrific from all the reports we are seeing over here. Just stay safe Rachel.

    That's great news Leon, well done :thumbsup:

    Take care Rachel (know you will) :thumbsup:

    Here, with the death rate still rising, they've changed their minds again, and we'll be out of 'lockdown', and returning to a 'tier system' :confused: Highest death rate in Europe, worst economic damage, and we're in more debt than after WW2 o_O

    Good morning Guardians, a second day in a row without rain here today, they'll be introducing a sprinkler ban next! :rolleyes: Have a good day Guardians, stay safe out there :thumbsup:

    Thanks for the squirrel info Dan. If those things have managed to cross the Pacific then I guess world domination is next. :D
    That's a great shot of your HHB on that old rail there.

    Why didn't I think of that. I've got a compressor in the garage but never thought of using it to blow gunk out of pocket knife joints. :rolleyes: I've also got brake line cleaner which is fantastic for cleaning crap out of anything.

    Yesterday was the first (mild) frost of the year round where I live.

    Brake line cleaner is great, but I find oil works fine for new pocket knives. There's usually just some buffing compound and mucky oil in there, and it only takes a few minutes to shift it. Makes a big difference to the action though :thumbsup:

    I don't think we've had frost here yet, or if we have I've missed it :rolleyes: Looks like you've been carrying your Hartshead Barlow a fair bit recently David :) :thumbsup:

    Thanks for the info and pics of the "flavored" pork pies, David! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: I think I'd enjoy any of those (except mushy peas). Fantastic photos from your hike; the plane crash site is fascinating. :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Congrats on the auspicious antique! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Harvey, in your absence, you've lost none of your talent for taking photos that show the desirability of both knives and baked goods! ;):cool::cool:

    FWIW, I spent some time this weekend looking back in this thread to the time when the horn Guardians knives were sent out (Oct. 2017 IIRC), and you mentioned in a contemporaneous post that there were 30 horn lambsfoots, including the 5 Midnight Specials.

    Big-league pic of your Ironwood, Barrett! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    I sure enjoy the outdoor pics of your HHB, Jack! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Scary squirrel story, Rachel! :eek: I hope "late-onset rabies" isn't a thing! ;)
    I also hope you and your family can enjoy Thanksgiving, even taking social distancing to the extreme. :)
    Your horn Guardians lambsfoot is a beauty; when I was looking back at their thread debut, I noticed the distinctive white scimitar yours has on the pile side! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    Captivating fall photo, Dan! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:
    There's another thread for pics like that:

    Splendid photo, Dwight, with the silver hardware on your stag HHB matching the color of the truck and some of the color on the stump and the silvery mist in the trees in the background! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Drop-dead gorgeous WCLF, Taylor! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:
    Belated birthday wishes to your son! :)

    The ongoing squirrel theme in this thread has taken an unexpected turn! :eek::rolleyes:
    IMHO, the final photo above deserves some elaboration! o_Oo_O
    I think the American baseball player Yogi Berra purportedly said, "It gets late early out there."

    Exquisite stag HHBs, Ron & Rachel! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Time to admire that translucent horn, José! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Good to see you here, Mark, and your pessimism is certainly understandable. The behavior of many people in the face of this pandemic frustrates, and angers, me. :thumbsdown::mad:


    Thanks for all your replies to my over-long post, Jack! :)
    Strange how the contents of our memories seem beyond our control. :rolleyes::confused:

    These days, I tend to let small chunks of peanut brittle "melt in my mouth" until only the peanuts remain, then chew up the peanuts. :(

    I'm hoping I can use a scooter on the sidewalks of the residential neighborhoods in which I do most of my traveling.
    Yeah, always using the same leg for propulsion might lead to seeing specially tailored trousers with more room in the seat on the "muscular side". :D

    Thanks for the stove info, Jack; looks like some handy equipment! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    I used to be known for walking through the parking lot on the west edge of campus smoking a cigar several times per day, regardless of weather, but I finally quit smoking almost 6 years ago. :thumbsup::thumbsup:;)


    Definitely strange, disruptive, hard times! :eek::(

    Thanks, Jack. :) My Union Jack "should" have an angular nose, but I don't think it does. Just another indication that my daughter "picked a winner" for me at Barnitt's! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Informative post with a fetching photo! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:


    What a stunner, Ron! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Lovely lambsfoot! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    I haven’t been keeping count, but the AC has been with me every day since I took up the “streak”. I’m disappointed I haven’t been able to document it well or come up with a variety of pictures. Leisure comes at a premium these days.

    Thanks for taking one for the team my friend :) ;) :thumbsup:

    Many thanks Gary :) :thumbsup:

    Yes indeed, I'm not sure how I'd managed to get through life without hearing of The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl before! :D I'm surprised you're the first to ask about that photo GT! :rolleyes: There was a mill on that site at one time, and that building has been empty and semi-derelict for a long time. On my last walk that way, I noticed that quite a bit of money had been spent renovating the place. On Saturday, I noticed a lot of chainsaw sculptures in the area, and then that thing, whatever it's supposed to be! :eek: I'm guessing that some artists have conned their way into a grant or something o_O There goes the area! :rolleyes:

    I can still remember my grandmother's phone number from when I was seven, but heck knows what my number is now! :confused: :eek: :rolleyes:

    That's always my peanut brittle plan too Gary, but I always seem to forget! :rolleyes: :D You're clearly more disciplined than me :thumbsup:

    Yes, that could work out pretty good :) I was talking to a lad with an electric unicycle the other day. He was very enthusiastic about it, and said it had transformed his life. I can only imagine how one of those might transform mine! :eek:


    A pleasure :) When I was young, I walked very fast, and even ate lunch on the go. Now, I like to have a sit down, and have a cuppa, or even cook lunch ;) :thumbsup:

    LOL! Splendid! :D :thumbsup:

    Since the knives are hand-ground, the angles definitely vary a fair bit. Maybe the cutler was feeling benevolent that day, and thought he'd 'grind posh', and give your Lambsfoot a Roman Nose! :D ;) :thumbsup:

    I am! Variety may be the spice of life, but the AC is meat and potatoes. Does everything this guy needs.

    Thanks. I'm doing my best to stay safe.
    Thanks, GT. The pile side isn't as exciting as the mark, but it's still attractive, I think.

    You really couldn't make this stuff up could you?! :D :thumbsup:

    Julie Newmar's Catwoman and Yvonne Craig's Batgirl can continue to rest on their laurels as far as I'm concerned.

    This snow is supposed to be turning to rain. Last I looked it was still supposed to be 50 degrees and dry on Thursday.

    Yep, they flew home for Turkey Rachel @r8shell but they are the true Turkeys. Just too dumb to realize it.

    I'll just stick close to home and Coon Finger Charlie's @waynorth WCLF
