Fruit salad, Gus!
Shade is a blessing at this time of year! If I don't have a specific destination for my daily walks this week, when it's very hot and humid, I just go whatever direction has the most shade each time I come to an intersection.Thanks, GT.
Luckily the shade moved in about half way through and made it bearable.
Ravishing reds, John!Must be in a red mood today, whatever that means.
It was really weird to wake up today and not have to go teach.
Had a hard time falling asleep last night, kept prepping math lessons in my head???
At least you tried with your BIL, Jeff.
Hope the back is better now, Todd.
Great pair, Jeff; that Tip Top Barlow is an awesome old knife!
Killer kolor koordination with knife and kayak, Kory!Took this Old Timer out on the kayak yesterday and got some fishing with my boy in.
Really enjoy the "dueling Robesons" you and Gus are posting, JJ!
What a superb pair, Steve!
Wish Case had the Texas Jack pen blade on a knife with round bolsters like the medium jack.I thought I'd easily prefer the similar size Medium Jack over the Texas Jack because of the slightly smaller pen blade,
but in real life usage, I haven't yet encountered a 'job' specific situation where the pen blade size mattered a great deal.
For my EDC consideration, the Medium Jack and Texas Jack are virtually interchangeable,
although I think I see more Texas Jacks posted here than Medium Jacks.
Thanks, JJ.Fantastic foursome, Gary; very cool variety of slicers you have assembled!
Stunning stag trio, Harry!These 2 today in the morning :
Then this one in the afternoon to cut down August Lilly early growth .
Formidable duo, Jack!Really struggling with Imgur this morning, and not for the first time recently
Carrying my Hartshead Barlow again, and a Random Tuesday big Sheepsfoot by George Butler
Gus, that Ka-Bar is just incredible!! Is it a muskrat? What's the second blade?
Given the recent Midwest weather and your trio of knives, you've been "sweatin' with the oldies", Jeff!
Thanks for the info.One blade. Imagine all the weight it saves me!
Thanks, John.Super cool old Pruner Electrician, the handles are marvelous.
I hope you found a definition that wasn't too offensive!Thank you, GT.
I had to look up the word "hoary"
Terrific twosome for Timber Twins Tuesday!
Pair of classic Cases, Todd!
Thanks for the info, Steve; I was gonna guess German Shepard, but the ears had me second guessing myself.Thanks Gary, she is a Shepard mix.
Notable pair, José!
Sounds great, ED!Feels like a liver and onion day at the Wagon Wheel Cafe.
Quality pair, David!
Sublime covers, Gus!!!
Love the "rebus puzzle"!Dynamic Duo... and
Thanks buddy That must have been frustrating Gary, glad you're all OK today, clearly Rest Aids Recovery!Formidable duo, Jack!
My internet and TV and phone were all down yesterday, and my usual variety of "resetting tricks" didn't work, but somehow they all healed themselves while I was sleeping!
Mmm. Smooth Ivory Bone! Love it!Superb pic of that beautiful Barlow Dean
LOL! That still looks pretty good my friend
Thanks a lot JJ
That is stunning JJ, and the Delrin model pairs very nicely
It certainly would Dennis
Stan Shaw made me up this Stockman from old parts, and put horn covers on, instead of wood.
My friend @herder gifted me a regular-sized Stockman
And I have this Gunboat Canoe, made during that period, and a thoughtful gift from scrteened porch
Thanks again buddy, the Queen was a gift from our pal JohnDF You are doing a storming job with those multi-quotes Dennis Hope you're doing OK there, I like your new Sodbuster, goes great with the Lamb
I share your pain my friend, but that gorgeous Case Barlow is sure to brighten your day
Piano keys for me today Have a good Friday everyone
Really nice pair! Great combo.
I worry about that too Gary, but my neighbor tells me it’s fantastic. I have 3 years before I find out!I'm struggling adjusting to retirement.
Hope the back is better now, Todd.
Is that your summer hat with the TJ?
Thanks Gary!Pair of classic Cases, Todd!
Great looking knives Marlinspike, your Otter and a Jack make a great pair!
Beautiful Barlows Jeff. Have fun at the wedding, mask free! Sounds like you have a great two weeks ahead of you. Enjoy your family!I felt like carrying these two Barlows with smooth bone from ‘70 and ‘72. No particular reason, none at all.
Off to Iowa in a bit for my niece’s wedding. First mask and worry free family gathering in over a year, which is unusual for us.
The only ones that won’t be there are my oldest boy’s daughters, but school is out in Georgia, and they are flying here the day we get back. Really looking forward to having them for almost two weeks.

Thank you, my friend.That one is really great.
A solid knife choice.
It's a good little Jack, Jack.That still looks pretty good my friend
Oh my... That's a TREASURE!
Sorry your smooth bone didn't win the poll.
It's hard when it becomes such a big part of your identity.I'm struggling adjusting to retirement.
Lol... I'm glad I spelled it correctly.I hope you found a definition that wasn't too offensive!
Thank you, GT.Terrific twosome for Timber Twins Tuesday!
Safe travels, Jeff.Off to Iowa in a bit for my niece’s wedding.
No, can you believe it? Heard good things about it though. Isn’t that the place where they give you a beer while you wait? We like Schneider’s in Waterloo, got a buddy that lives there so whenever we visit we bring a cooler and stop there.Have you tried G&W Meat and Bavarian style sausage company in St. Louis?
