    Phew! So it's not the barrels of ale and knocks to the head doing silly stuff? :D


    Congratulations! :thumbsup:

    Yip. She looks like trouble....:D

    Good luck! Wishing you a speedy recovery. :thumbsup:

    I don't know what it is about my camera. It always focuses on the ale...

    This is one of the reasons we are moving from our home of 18 years. They are building two 5 story apartments right off our back deck Obstructing our view and peace and quiet. As you can tell the forest is gone and as a result, the squirrels, chipmunks and nesting birds are gone as well. :(
    And of course, my trusty Lambsfoot will carry us through,:thumbsup::D

    That's damned annoying Dave. Are people able to lodge objections to building projects in Canada? We can here in the UK; not that anyone seems to pay any attention. :rolleyes:

    That's horrible, Dave. Good reason to move. Hope the new place is peaceful.

    David we as a neighborhood fought the town two years ago on this monster project and lost. Money for the coffers rules over common sense. :rolleyes::thumbsdown:

    Most unfortunate Dave. Growth is everywhere, it seems, and sometimes not under very much control, unless it's the control of money.

    Morning guys. Pretty impressive video. Watched it a couple of times as that sage colored wildrag (scarf) he was wearing at the very beginning looks like one we made. Its a very unique silk and once you see it and feel it you recognize it. Here Miss Gracie is wearing a wine colored one:

    Sage and different shades of it has been one of our biggest sellers and we have sold them all over the world including quite a few to the UK. here's a sage in Norway:

    Anyhoo a talented horseman and very talented horses too. My wife Nichole use to ride a very tall horse and a friend of ours Rex Peterson, who has done a lot of movie work (Appaloosa, Hidalgo, Horse Whisper, All the Pretty Horses, Black Stallion Returns etc) lives close by. He told us to bring the horse out one day and he spent all afternoon teaching Nichole how to teach the horse to bow and then kneel so it would be easier for Nichole to get on him. All he wanted in exchange was for me to sharpen a damascus knife Matt Damon had given him when filming All the Pretty Horses.

    Sorry to hear that. Sounds like Canadian buffoonary is the same as British buffoonary... :rolleyes::rolleyes:
    Hope your new place doesn't suffer the same fate.

    From the images of that beautiful view, I can appreciate your chagrin. Hopefully, the view will be equally breathtaking.

    Once again Barry, great find :) Unfortunately I left my spare reading glasses at my girlfriend's this evening (left my NEW reading glasses on the train back from Skipton the other week!) o_O So please excuse me my friend, I'll post some info, when I'm reunited with my specs, tomorrow :thumbsup:

    It is great having you here Barry :) :thumbsup:

    Thank you very much Harvey :) :thumbsup:

    LOL! :D :thumbsup:

    Maybe it's a CAMRA camera David ;) :thumbsup:

    Oh Dave, that is absolutely appalling! :eek: What a crying shame :( I have some friends here who are going through the same thing at the moment :thumbsdown:

    What a treat Taylor, great pic my friend :) :thumbsup:

    Hey Dave, glad you found the video of interest :) That has got to be one of your wildrags my friend, they look darn cool too :) That is a great story :) :thumbsup:

    Great pic Barry, I like that cane, as well as those fab old knives :) :thumbsup:

    Thank you Jack; the cane is one I made for myself after using a cheap store-bought model. Not that I need it, you understand! It's just that I can stay upright longer with than without! ;)

    What a fantastic lamb Barry.

    Just a gorgeous dam serpent lamb Taylor. :cool:

    :p:D

    That is sad Dave. Sorry to see that matey. No way could I have stayed after that. Rather be in a tent. I am glad you won't be having to endure it.

    Common sense is most definitely on the endangered attributes list. :(

    Have a great weekend Guardians. IMG_1590.jpeg
