christain: Plan on blacking-out the eyes, nose, and mouth---in the 'Y'-shaped visor slit. Halloween is not far off, and I gotta be on my A-game! 8D Oct 15, 2019 3:12:13 GMT
christain: I just ordered an Epic Armoury 'Epic-Dark' barbute helm from KoA. My ol' lady is gonna thrash me, but I don't care. P-) Oct 15, 2019 2:57:40 GMT
nternal805: Hello Mike, what exactly are you asking? Oct 14, 2019 22:56:58 GMT
mikefr1: My first time using and I sent information minutes ago but I’m not sure it went anywhere? Is this the place to ask my questions! Oct 14, 2019 21:06:58 GMT
christain: Waiting on a custom must be extra-hard....I get antsy waiting on a machete or tomahawk from Amazon, and they only take a couple of days! (rofl) Oct 14, 2019 19:25:31 GMT
nerdthenord: Getting closer and closer to my custom sword... Just 2-4 more months! Oct 14, 2019 17:41:13 GMT
christain: Day 2 of my 'vacation'. I did have a good night of painless sleep though. Beer, with an intermittent shot of good bourbon, and a muscle-relaxer chaser will do it every time. :D I feel pretty good today....for now. Wifey may change all that. ;-| Oct 13, 2019 21:42:39 GMT
redscorpion: Hey, nord! I haven't been much active either. Lots of business with work and home. Life often gets in the way of having fun. Oct 13, 2019 20:53:25 GMT
nerdthenord: Howdy folks. Haven't been on much the last week or so. Sorry about your knee Scorp. Oct 13, 2019 1:46:02 GMT
nternal805: 8-) 8-) 8-) Oct 12, 2019 21:13:32 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: You could wrap a few sword grips... :D Oct 12, 2019 21:09:45 GMT
christain: I'm already at the antsy stage...tomorrow will be fidgeting...then hair-pulling...then going out back and killing some water bottles. That usually helps. :D The running out of money is my problem too. If I were mega-rich...look out! 8-) Oct 12, 2019 19:51:51 GMT
redscorpion: 10 days! I get antsy after 2. Not that I run out of things to do, I just run out of the money to do them. Oct 12, 2019 19:00:50 GMT
christain: I can do that by MYSELF---EASILY. :D Oct 12, 2019 15:15:20 GMT
christain: Andi: Of that, I can be certain---and it usually involves spending money. ;-| Oct 12, 2019 15:14:27 GMT
christain: The weather is WONDERFUL--cool and Fall-like--FINALLY. :P Great for outdoor chores, but nothing really needs done outside. The heat from summer took care of my lawn for me, and raking leaves is just pissin' in the wind right now. (rofl) Oct 12, 2019 15:13:17 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: After day 1 wife finds something to do! Oct 12, 2019 15:12:56 GMT
christain: I've got 10 days of paid vacation, and I honestly don't know what to do with myself...and today is just day 1. ??? I've got a ton of projects to work on, but the motivation escapes me. :-/ Maybe today I'll just chill and cook something good. :D Oct 12, 2019 15:08:58 GMT
redscorpion: My only option is to don my best Kung-fu homeless/drunken/master clothing and stand around the dojo with a stick and slap the students when they do wrong. Other than that, I'm on the sidelines. Oct 12, 2019 14:35:10 GMT *
redscorpion: It's just a thing to get through. It annoys me because my German co-worker goes back in 2 months and we really haven't done any HEMA style sparring yet. I won't be up and running until he's back in Germany. Dam the timing. Oct 12, 2019 14:32:07 GMT
