christain: Don't feel alone, Scott. I gotta work Sunday while the rest of the family has Easter dinner. :-[ That's okay though...I'll just eat double when I get home. :P :D Apr 21, 2019 0:11:34 GMT
ouroboros: Sorry Scott. Hope time off comes soon Apr 20, 2019 18:33:48 GMT
Scott: I'm working all weekend Apr 20, 2019 17:39:39 GMT
ouroboros: Easter Greetings to you too! Apr 20, 2019 14:32:37 GMT
brothersteel: Finishing up "The Robe" as we're prepping for tomorrow. Seeing the one sword fight in the film last night, I laugh inwardly at how much Olympic fencing still reigned in Hollywood in those days. A blessed Easter to all! Apr 20, 2019 14:23:49 GMT
ouroboros: Ahhhhhh Friday Apr 20, 2019 12:34:31 GMT
ouroboros: Highway between us and Ottawa that follows the river is closed today for some flood proofing and sandbag work ... and 6 of 6 seedlings are showing their first set o leaves in the grow space under 600w of led lighting... Apr 20, 2019 12:34:26 GMT
ouroboros: Got 2 crazies of 11 and 7 years home with me today. Just ended morning tachikaze session and the weathers gearing up for another wet day. Apr 20, 2019 12:32:51 GMT
redscorpion: yeah, cars. Always spending money on those things. I just had to put spark plugs in my older Jag. $300 just about covers cost of materials (plugs and gaskets) - then it's a 4 hour job to change them out. Apr 20, 2019 11:02:17 GMT
christain: TGIF, y'all....Anyone have any cool weekend plans ? Perfect weather tomorrow for Ren-Fest here, but after having to drop $300 on car repairs ;-|....maybe next weekend/paycheck. Even had my kit packed up and ready. :-/ Apr 20, 2019 3:09:55 GMT
redscorpion: Ah, I see now. I stand (or rather sit) corrected. Nice seax. Been thinking about picking one up for myself. Apr 19, 2019 1:16:10 GMT
christain: Congrats, Nord! Nice looking seax you have there. You've waited patiently, and now...the reward! :D When you decide you want a Viking longship replica built, I know a couple'a guys..... (rofl) (rofl) (rofl) Apr 18, 2019 23:59:48 GMT
nerdthenord: Lol, I posted pictures Scorp. In my own thread and the new acquisitions thread. Apr 18, 2019 22:48:45 GMT
redscorpion: Good for you, Nord! But.... no pictures = never happened. Apr 18, 2019 22:25:43 GMT
nerdthenord: Well, I pick up my seax Tuesday, which is just perfect lol. Apr 18, 2019 15:27:01 GMT
Djinnobi ☽✮☾: Yea thanks for viewing my thread, chris! Apr 18, 2019 6:30:38 GMT
christain: PM reply sent. :) Beddy-bye time. Work tomorrow. G'night, all. (zzz) Apr 18, 2019 3:42:07 GMT
nerdthenord: Christain, sent you a PM about that sheath. Oh I am so exited for my seax! It is supposed to be epic! I updated my thread about it btw. Apr 18, 2019 2:49:43 GMT
