Thanks, Jack.Hope you're fully recovered today Rachel, Happy Flag Day!
Fantastic!Thanks! I sure think so …
I find that as I get older, I'm more of an early riser. It's certainly nice this time of year, when it's 80 degrees by 8 am. If I don't get a walk in first thing in the morning, I'm just not going to do it.Nice trio of knives, Rachel!
I agree with your claim about time of day. In my golden years, I seem to wake up at 4-4:30am no matter when I go to bed, so staying up past 9pm is unusual for me any more.
Do you have any "critters" in your water tank? When I was a kid on the dairy farm, seems like in the summer we almost always had a turtle or two and a couple of bullheads in the cow tank; the cows didn't seem to mind. (Sometimes had a watermelon cooling in the tank, too.)
LOL! Thanks buddy, it's definitely a ritual I enjoy, takes me back to when I used to do it as a kidLike Snake after his basketball game.
Wonderful photo, Jack.
Cooking coffee outdoors is the best relaxer in the world.
I know the feeling Rachel, hope you do I've also found I get up earlier as I get older - I remember once bumping into my granddad when I was on my way home from a night out, and he was going for his morning paper! Excellent pairThanks, Jack.
I'm a little bit sore from some of the yardwork I did over the weekend, but expect to recover quickly.

Got to agree with JohnDF Todd, perfect pairing
Interesting stuff, I wonder if there was a tariff loophole? Those stockman knives look super cool!Yes indeed, I had a former brother-in-law working for Rodgers-Wostenholm at the time, and even he didn't know where the blades came from (though he did know they came from the USA). The project was very hush-hush though, and none of the knives were ever sold in England. The Stockman was simply Wostenholm's existing pattern (see below), and the large Stockman was also made in Sheffield, but the large Lockback, and some of the others, were merely assembled and finished there
