Thanks for your comments about my dad's knives. I wish I had more to post but I can't find the flash drive that has them on it. I'll start working on that as soon as I have time. Kind of cool you are a musician. I've been a singer all of my life. I've won a few competions and I know a few musicians in Branson. What's your genre.
