Re: Flint and pheasant.

Such a lovely outing! The sound of the little creek almost put me to sleep. I know Jess must enjoy too. We just got back from taking our Oreo to the vet. A big 3" gash in the front of left hind leg.

Re: My first finger joint box.

Outstanding Lenn. I really like boxes like that. I've long wanted to make one for my 62 police model. Very elegant little pistol but needs all that "stuff" to load it so a box with everything in it would be nice. Maybe I'll finally get around to it after the shop remodel.
