Thank you Dwight
Big congratulations X2 Jordan. Exciting!
@Fodderwing Thank you Dwight.
No early morning trip to the market for me this Thursday as I am finally getting my boiler fixed (it needs a new pump). Hoping to get down there later, and then going out for dinner, so I think I'm going to go dressy
@[email protected] Congratulations on the news of the twins!
Thank you everyone! I am unbelievably excited!
I love listening to baseball on the radio! We've finally got some beautiful cigar weather here in Minnesota, but I haven't sat down and enjoyed one yet.
That one looks like it's spent a few decades in a pocket, Harry!
Did you sneak in to Jack's place and take that picture on his kitchen table?!
Entertaining stuff, Jack, and fantastic photos! Thank you for sharing! I wonder if the international knights travel with their own horses, or ride "local" horses? (The UK team might have a bit of an advantage if it's the latter! ) I know there are specialty airlines that transport horses (for Olympic equestrian events and such), but I'm sure it's very expensive.
(This new forum system sure makes quoting photo-heavy posts difficult! )
Who knew we had so many Eleanors/Ellies between us?
I don't have any new Lambsfoot content to post, so I'll just repost this picture of my Eleanor assessing my Ironwood Guardians Lambsfoot.
As far as I'm concerned, baseball is the only sport that really works on the radio. It's like they were made for each other. You need good announcers, though.
I don't follow sport much, but I used to enjoy listening to boxing on the radio (enjoy watching it too)
My kitchen table is not too bad at the moment Barrett, but I have a very large box full of all the knives I've picked up which would otherwise be on the table to remind me to clean them. Of course, since they're in the box, I kind of forgot about them
Thanks Barrett, I did wonder about the horses, which were absolutely amazing. They were all trained and supplied by a firm called Atkinson Action Horses, the riders seemed to be pretty familiar with them though (we were closest to the Canadian team). They supply horses for films, and also put on their own shows (from a quick look at their website): http://actionhorses.co.uk/ There's some videos online too, eg:
(Better get Dave @Horsewright back in here to have a look at that )
The Royal Armouries did have their own horses and riders, who put on free displays several times a day, falcons and handlers, a resident armourer and a gunsmith, but they all got made redundant a few years ago
Such a great pic my friend
Here's my Eleanor with her knife:
She'll graduate to a lambsfoot eventually!
[Not a real knife, so I hope it doesn't violate the non-lambsfoot knife rule!]
Such a cool pic Vince, you need to make her a Lambsfoot! I have a photo of my granddaughter (Ellie's daughter) running around with a plastic ninja sword on her first birthday
I was wondering the same thing. Thanks for posting the links and vids Jack. Amazing footage of the most majestic of creatures.
Congratulations Jordan! That's great news
Exciting news. Congratulations.
Thanks Dwight, I haven't spent much time around horses, but they are certainly beautiful creatures. My daughters can ride, but I never did, no money for that kind of thing when I was a kid. I know it's different for rural folks An Irish friend of mine once invited me up to his farm in Scotland, and asked me if I could ride a horse. At the time, I thought it was the daftest question in the world, and told him, "Of course I can't, I'm from Sheffield!" Actually, several members of my family were in cavalry regiments, but I'm not sure they'd have gotten to ride horses though, not most of them anyway
The way she’s handling it, it does look like it’s HER knife. Great portrait of Eleanor.
Congratulations in double Jordan, good luck for the boys!!!
I'm with you there, Jack. I remember back in the day, there was no cable or satellite TV, so unless you went to a theatre for a pay per view, the only way to experience title fights was on the radio. I have fond memories of listening to the Joe Frazier vs. Jimmy Ellis heavyweight title fight in November of 1970 on the radio. Smokin' Joe was a favorite of mine.
A great boxer Jeff, I always think that it's a shame there's no statue to him in his home town, while there's a statue to an imaginary boxer
So I went to bed last night just before 2am, which was about 12 hours ago
During that time, there have been 64 posts in this thread No wonder it takes me so long to catch up. Maybe I should just sleep in this chair
That is just stupendous! Mucho congrats to you and the Mrs. Better start saving up though 'cause you'll have to buy 2 of everything
Couldn't agree more. The supposed #1 radio announcer for the Giants is too wordy for me and seems to like to hear himself talk. He'll start talking about ships in the bay ad nauseam, rather than stick to calling the game. I like the other guy though, and Duane Kuiper is a great radio announcer
Glad to hear you are feeling better. If your pills are like mine, just watch out for the constipation blues
