    Might need a lawn tractor.
    They will find and send you some shields, but then you have to put them in straight by yourself. They recommend superglue. Epoxy is probably better, but it's messier, and if you have fine motor challenges...
    Predicted high of 55 here today! Down to 40 on Sunday.

    Reading the news on the net about Venice being flooded once again, when on the first photograph I spot something familiar... What a coincidence that I am toting Charlie's ancient barlow today! @waynorth

    Hmm, that Case is what I am going to find under the christmas tree tomorrow. Beautifully made, spring flush in all 3 positions and gorgeous jigging.
    Yes, I have been a naughty boy, checking out the presents in advance.;)

    This one is actually for the dogs, so I’m reluctant to put it under the tree early. They will do well this year.

    And I’ll have the Shuffler with me to help out.

    I was in Venice in 1967, and we saw the waterlines from the previous year's flood, which I believe was the record until this year. Before we left they had put up those sawhorse boardwalks. It was kind of exciting to see such high water where it should have been dry, but kind of rough on the buildings and the residents.
    I can't find my gondola shaped knife, so this will have to do.
    I'm not actually carrying the Sino-Venetian choo-choo.

    It's a wonderful chilly and foggy morning, I've got some cozy new wool socks and still toting this superb knife. Hope you all have a good 'un today.

    Great scout!!! You and I are of similar mind today. My RS3333 is one of my two favorite camp knives. An absolute work of art in every way. I'll be carrying it for the rest of the week, with Christmas quickly approaching. It's the sort of knife that every young boy once dreamt of getting as a Christmas present, after thumbing thorough the ads in Boys' Life magazine for the thousanth time.

    The main one today. Been anticipating this one most of the year. Not disappointed. Exceeds expectations. Quite extraordinary, actually.

    I like the way epoxy gives you more time to adjust the shield before it sets. Hate superglue. It can get brittle with age, and I have to wear latex gloves that I can slip out of when I glue my hand to the table. :eek:
    I read somewhere that they were trying to calculate how much and at what rate Venice has sunk. They couldn't find written records going back very far, and someone had the brilliant idea of going to the museums to look at the water level depicted in the old paintings. :cool::thumbsup:
    And Festivus, of course!

    Today I've got the new Forum knife and this ole butter & molasses.
