    Great picture, and my brain belted out the Otis Redding song "sitting on the dock of the bay" in seeing your beautiful rosewood Lambsfoot. :)

    Thanks Dave, hope you enjoyed your Spam :) I was in a small cafe the other day, in an area of Leeds I am not very familiar with. I was early for an appointment and thought I'd get a coffee to kill some time. There was a short typewritten menu on the counter, and next to the breakfast items, someone had written in large letters, "WE ALSO SELL SPAM!" I would have liked to have got a photo, but I thought they might throw me out! The area I was in is actually known locally as Corned Beef Island! :D

    Great pic of that beauty Ron :) :thumbsup:

    Thanks Ron, you too pal :) :thumbsup:

    LOL! Yeah, in Biro, with a box round it and stars! :D Maybe they had a whole load to get rid of! :D :thumbsup:

    I agree Dave, I have always thought of corned beef as a treat :) When I lived in the Middle East, we would fry it up in olive oil, with onions, maybe crack an egg over the top. Now that was Living! :D :thumbsup:

    When I was a kid, at school, they would serve fake Spam luncheon meat, which even the kitchen staff called 'Pink Lint'! It was pretty disgusting! :eek: :D :thumbsup:

    What the #@** fake Spam :eek: man I can't imagine what they used? The only thing I can think that it was made from would be a wee bit of pork/mutton etc along with Soya meal. There was a time in the 70's when I was a young Meat Dept Manager the head office pushed us to market Soya burger. Pretty gross stuff :eek: we would use 25lb beef to 10lb soya and add 5lb of ice.

    It had a lot more fat in it, really nasty stuff :eek: I think soya is used in a lot of cheap meat products, like pies and sausages, these days. I actually don't mind soya, but I think if folks pay for a beef burger, they should be getting that, not pet-food. Barely a week goes by here without some sort of scandal in the meat industry, some of the stories are pretty disgusting. Few people here are able to hunt or rear what they eat, and basically they have no idea what they're eating - sometimes literally - but then that even applies to vegetables as well as meat - there's probably a percentage of the population who have no idea that the fries they're served in MacD's are potatoes - but then maybe they aren't! :eek: :rolleyes: :thumbsup:

    Thanks, Ron. :) The entire Ashley's Choice run is amazing! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Oh, I definitely want one, but all in good time, Dave. ;) I have to save some things to look forward to! :D

    Thanks for the info about your railroad pics, and for your illustrated replies to my comments. :) Interesting that your rails pic suggested to me "He's Gone", while to you it elicited "All the Way Home"; that's been a perennial problem for me - can't tell whether I'm coming or going! :eek::p
    Thanks also for the good word about my Cracker Jack pic. :)

    At first, I wondered if "The Quiet Man" was the film in which Wayne's character tosses his hat onto a hat rack, but decided I'm actually misremembering McLintock and the hat going up onto a weathervane. :rolleyes:

    Fine fotos of good wood, Jack! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    What a refined, handsome knife, Ron! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Thanks, @herder. :) I often get some very pleasing knife photos on the dock at the place we vacation each summer. :cool::thumbsup:

    Last day for my Cracker Jack for 5 weeks :( (unless I make it my Free Choice Knife some of those weeks ;)):

    Yeah, that was McLintock. O'Hara co-starred in at least four John Wayne films. "The Quiet Man" was the best one. 1952 film. Wayne's character returns to the land of his birth, Ireland, where he retires after giving up boxing because he killed a man in the ring. Falls in love with O'Hara's character, but her brother (played by Victor McLaglen) won't give permission for them to marry. (It's the "old days" in the Old Country!) He picks on Duke but Duke won't fight back. Everyone thinks he's a coward. He even keeps his past from her. Can't tell the whole story here, but it's a great romantic comedy.
    Cracking Cracker Jack, by the way!

    Yes indeed! :D :thumbsup:

    That was just an excuse for a Spinal Tap reference GT! :D I didn't put too much thought into the pic, but I was on my way home! ;) The rhythm of locomotives has influenced many songs of course :thumbsup:



    Thank you my friend :thumbsup:

    I'm sure I won't be the only one missing your Cracker Jack GT :) :thumbsup:
