I helped an elderly wheel chair bound woman move today from one room in an assisted living center to another.  It turned into an all day event involving a trip to a storage facility, shuffling said contents of storage room and extracting some big heavy stuff for her use.  I was only supposed to offer the use of my truck and still wound up moving some heavy objects.  I am hovering around an angry six, pushing seven, and I know tonight will be hell.  No good deed will go un-punished. *sniff* Wahhhhhhh..

Think you and I were made out of the same mold. . We help even if we don't feel good ourselves. You just have a too kind heart. Hope the after effects were brief. Take care.

Hi Adam,


 That's wonderful and just like I expect you to be Sir Kinds and ever helpful, I know the after sucks but who worries about that all it takes is someone asking for a hand and you will be there. Well done Adam, Oh while I have you can silly question can you put a handle on a knife and sharpen it. No rude comments I know you can sharpen knives, of course, It's just because you asked about sending you a knife and if I send you like just the blank we avoid far too much silliness rules. Just checking if you still interested basically...

Yes, I can.  I've done so several times now.  What are your thoughts my friend?  A James Masterlich "Knife-In-A-Box-Kit" kind of thing?  If so I'd need to supply you with numerous photo's to see how your baby is progressing..

Next time just let someone  take your truck for the day.  I think that's what I would dol.  I've learned my lesson.  

Damn, I'm just too sleepy to type much.  I do hope you get to feeling better.  Prayers on the way, my friend.

Hi Adam,


 Well, we have only 1 candidate left in the bin looks like other smiths have been raiding it again! As normal without recording it in the book sigh, I will be asking for contributions methinks from them! 


Well here is what I have If you're interested, I will give the measurements in Inches I know your side of the pond like them for some reason ;) Oh and a picture for you to lust over hows that. If you likes then please send me a private message with an address and I will get the better half to arrange to ship it out.


 It Might take a few weeks I will warn you as sea shipping is slower but far more reasonable on the wallet about e/4 or Airmail it's crazy!!!

Hi Adam,


 I swear my Step son heard your message Wednesday is our big shop day we only go every 2 weeks and yes weirdly we both enjoy food shopping and discussing what we will make with the ingredients we procure well anyway halfway out the door we get a phone call from Paul.


 He lives in the same town as us but only really meet up a few times a year as he works nights and so is tricky to match visits to well, his neighbour and friend looks like has dementia thinks it's the 1980's and he is going to fly back to Australia tomorrow despite he has no money, passport and can barely walk.


Well Linda has been helping sort out Doctors appointments to get a diagnosis and he had to have a scan Paul was going to put him in a Taxi but that's stupid so we ended up taking Criss to hospital he was really funny as long as we stayed away from certain topics and I had a bribe of tobacco in my pocket bit like getting a kid to play nice with sweets. Well he had his scan fine and hopefully the doctor can get him some help I guess it will be a home this he really needs to get him fed up as there is nothing of him as he is forgetting meals.


One last thing we dropped him off and I walked him to his door and Paul come down he lives upstairs in the same building and asked him where he had been as a bit of a test and his response was'For a good walk' We were that forgettable! I guess he was sundowning as it was after 6 pm when we got him home. It's so sad seeing people go through this but hopefully, with proper medication and nutrition, he will come back a bit.

I suspect Adam is drooling over that knife; just about any guy I know would be.  It's truly beautiful, James, and I do 

hope you can send it to him.  If he didn't get his address to you, let me know and I'll send it to you.

Hi Dan,


 Don't worry Adam has been in contact and it's being worked out and he has been kind enough to send me his address. Linda is on the case looking into the best shipping method, there is a chance that a friend of ours will be visiting the states soon and can bring it over in her luggage and then pop it in the post to Adam. 


 Well were work it out might take a few weeks but in the end, after Adam has ahem 'Adem'ed' the project you will see it proudly displayed here i bet ;)

 

 Oh that knife I showed here has been rejected upon closer look the grinding was not the best maybe I was having a bad day, would you like a looksie of the one we found for our favourite gunsmith?

Tell you what, James.  Send me the reject.  I have a grinder.  It's small but it works for knives.  <Grin>  


No, just kidding.  It's out of my price range for knives since my hands are so trashed I really can't use one anymore.  Arthritis has moved into my knuckles on both hands and I'm just grateful I can still type.  They're nimble enough for that, but I cannot for the life of me put any real pressure on either one anymore.  I am exercising them and that's keeping them limber enough I can still do most things, but using a knife is pretty much out for anything like whittling or any real woodwork.  I just can't grasp anything with any sort of sturdy grip.  Even shaking hands has gotten painful.  


Bah.  I really don't like getting old.  It really sucks.  LOL  


Can't wait to see it, Adam.  


Dan

Hi Dan,


 Nah that knife is in the bin I try and not show the ones that I feel are in this case on the work and I feel this one looks a bit nicer actually I grabbed it back from our little apprentice he was practising handle work so it's a bit more refined on than the original and Adam I belive is happy. Maybe I am too hard on myself but if it doesent look and feel quite right it goes in the bin and we try again!


Well we're all not getting younger I am finding it harder and harder to do hammer work, so my weight is rising I can still grind fairly well on a good day. I hope you can still do enough to find fun and interest in life, Dan.


Well have a look and see what you think of the new one anyhow, I'm a bit all over the place with my brain today. I hate it when it gets sort of hyper and just jumps around from subject to subject writing is very hard as I believe it's showing here. I am going for a lie-down...

The knife is just amazing, James.  

Adam, I am turning green with envy.  LOL    

Sorry about that.        \

I'm so tired it's taken me an hour just to get this done.  I think I'm going to bed,  I drove to Dallas today and saw my pain doc.  Had an interesting talk, but I'm too tired to tell you about it.  Tomorrow.
