About Me
Work very hard, at not working anymore, but it's not working.

Have used, carried (mostly folders) for only about the last 50+ years. In the last couple of years, I seem to buy knives, I really don't use or carry. The only cure for that, (that I can come up), is buy only what I will carry/use, or buy two, carry one, store one.
Interests
Hunting, Shooting Sports, Fishing.
Other Hobbies
ESS Field Trials. Exposing Crooked Politicians.
