    Thanks Paul! Last weekend was brutal for Ohio. The Buckeyes were embarrassing, then on Sunday my beloved Bengals were humiliated by the Chiefs and the Browns found yet another way to lose in O.T.:(

    Thanks Gary. I’ve been making an effort to mix up my carries a bit more but, doggone it, the Churchill pattern is just so appealing:rolleyes::)

    What a downer!:(:poop: On the other hand, it's better to have tried and failed than never bothered (usually ;)) . That Otter must be soft s tuff though as CASE stainless is not exactly diamond hard.

    I have tried some quite strange mods in my time with knives and even swords. Some were succesfull, some disastrous. This goes to top 5 in stupidity. :confused::poop:

    Everybody knows that beans will clog up the meat sauce pump. Gas station mini marts let you pump your own meat sauce and “cheese” sauce onto your nachos or hot dog. It comes in a #10 tin can or a heavy plastic bladder with a built in valve for the pump.

    But nobody wants that junk in place of real home made chili. ;)

    Winter approaches remorselessly ...the clocks went back and I got up an hour early:D Never like getting up whatever the time, likely because I never want to go to sleep;) But, the day was bright,crisp and sunny, albeit a brisk North wind:eek: So I thought to carry something unusual and mellow coloured, GEC 56 Dogleg from the first run. Five Kopeck coin from Katherine the Great is a heavyweight coin indeed!

    Spent yesterday in the Bay Area watching my younger son and his high school marching band compete (they won). Then stayed in Santa Clara and visited with my older son. I carried this "campus carry legal" Peanut with me even though it got zero usage.

    The 78 is a bit plump in the pocket, but great in hand. The coin isn’t a shot (I’m nowhere near good enough for that! :() The quarter is the result of a buddy and I messing around in his shop. I welded a center punch to his press. We turned a handful of quarters into spinning tops for his kids, and my niece & nephew. :)

    That’s some nice bone on that Catt! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Challenge & Utica yesterday and today. The Utica cut up an egg roll with scalpel like precision. Have no idea why a egg roll needs such precise dissection, but good to know the little knife was up to the task.

    I carried a couple of "free choice" knives this past week in addition to the knives prescribed by my rotation schedule. One free choice was a Rough Rider stag mini trapper:

    The other free choice was a Schrade Walden whittler (thanks, Tsar Bomba):

    I just can't abide chili without beans! Matter of fact my chili has three different kinds of beans AND some more that are mashed up just for good measure. :D I love Texas but now that I know their chili doesn't have beans in it... well... that makes em suspect. :eek::oops::rolleyes:

    Will that knife ought to have it's own museum. Seriously, are you required to have a permit to own such a grand bladed weapon of magnificent beauty? You never cease to wow me with your hardware. :cool:
