    They said it couldn't be done...We DID it!

    Cool & that sounds like fun!

    Sports fan? Who is your team no matter what? Show your team colors!

    There’s one team I’ve followed since the late 1950s, through the highs and the lows. I used to listen to them on a summer night under my covers with a little crystal radio. They play in the only professional sport I and about all my friends back then hoped to be a part of, and their presence in...

    Nearly started watching the nightly news instead of the Bucs vs Rams. Glad I didn’t!

    NFL playoff picks predictions and discussion

    Heck man, I love the Chiefs! As a dweller in Lions territory for 71 years—and I wasn’t watching football back when they were good—I love a lotta teams that my friends hate. Keeps me watching games + sane.

    I don't want to sharpen my knives

    I usually use ceramic sticks but have a number of ways to sharpen. If you truly hate to sharpen knives get this little thing. My wife likes to use our sharp paring & other knives on China, stainless steel or whatever other surface will dull them fastest. I have sticks right beside this thing...

    Great win by the Bengals, fun game to watch.

    NFL playoff picks predictions and discussion

    It’s looking like a good weekend of football. My betting friend has lived north of SF so after years of disappointment refused to bet on SF last week until I gave him more than the spread. You’d think he’d be happy with the win but is sulking & refusing again. He hates GB so is even more...

    First contacts at 60!

    I started wearing contacts in the 1980s IIRC? Our company was doing trials of a new silicon-based lens and I signed up. I wore soft silicone ones and loved ‘em! You could wear the things for 30 days straight though mine worked better with frequent soaking & cleaning. The program was scrapped...

    What brand of boots do you wear?

    Leather = Danner, both the imported and USA stuff. I’ve had amazing life beating the heck outta my Pronghorns and they’ve got the most miles on ‘em. For wet/hunting Lacrosse. They aren’t as good as the old ones but I’ve found nothing else that works. I’d like a good pair of slip on medium...

    Zippo! Who still has one?

    I still have a couple. One was a gift, one I bought myself. I think I still have some of my Dad’s WWII lighters too. I quit smoking a zillion years ago but can’t bring myself to toss out such a useful little machine.

    Had a great walk this morning

    I love to walk and am glad you’re getting out and enjoying it, telleutelleme. Having a dog does help; ours is bonkers about going anywhere with any of us. I’ve been for laid up for nearly 5 weeks after a foot surgery so my walking has been just hobbling about a little bit, and man do I miss...

    Almost end of the season (Great Lakes Shipping)

    Cool stuff. I drive through Duluth a couple times each year heading back & forth to my hunt camp up past Ft Frances. It’s nice to see some of the action up close! I remember my first trip up there in 2002. I had no real knowledge of what Duluth really was and it was quite a sight to see it...

    Fingerstyle Acoustic, "Jesu, Joy of Our Desiring", 1590 - 1664

    Nicely played and that guitar sounds great.

    Tongan Volcanic explosion...

    That appears to be a pretty significant eruption but information thus far is still kind of limited.

    2021 NFL season!

    Now that at least got a bit interesting. A grinding and sometimes inept 49ers held off a bumbling bunch of Cowboys while watching the latter keep trying to shoot their own foot off. All props to SF.

    Let's see your watch.

    Yes, MTPoteet, the watch my wife is wearing is a Citizen quartz. In the first part of the story I was referencing my daily wear Ecodrive Diver that I’ve worn daily for six years. It’s this one, seen here in April, 2016.

    Last night, I lost the best friend I've ever had.

    I’m so sorry. RIP Jake.

    Let's see your watch.

    That is odd. Been wearing mine nonstop for more than 5 years and it’s a rock, and I sure don’t baby it. It’s replaced my beloved Seiko Monster! Saw the old thread so today is a “Surprise watch wearing”. My wife used to wear little quartz watches until she could no longer see ‘em. I bought her...

    That’s a beautiful guitar. Thanks for sharing your story & carry on!

    Road runner - classic Detroit muscle

    I could have bought one like that from a friend in 1972 for $900. Man, it was tempting but not quite the vehicle for a poor young man with a wide and kid. The thing could honk, though. The base model 383 with the Hurst was no slouch.
