The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
I see its been a while since I posted here. a lot has happened since then. My XWife passed in June of 2020. a Heart attack that was unexpected. We had a lot of good times together and still remained friends after we split. More recent is the passing of my Son this year, 44 yrs in this world, June 1st. A Heart Attack also. He was in really bad health. He nearly lost a leg do to a major infection caused by a Idiot called a Dr. A 6 month Hospital stay for that. The Dr there was very good and saved his leg but he was disabled from that and was on SSI. More health issues showed up for him later on and his Dr was really concerned. However knowing my Son, he just went on like nothing was wrong. He got up that morning as He had things to do. And Sheila found him on the floor of his room and it was all ready to late...... He was gone.
We had discussed what to do in the event either one of us passed and I followed what he wanted done exactly. My Daughter, his Sister and his friends are holding a celerbration of his life this weekend where he worked during the Holidays. His Boss was really upset when He got the news about Him. As were we all. There is nothing quite like getting up in the morning and feeling that something is not right........ it is not what I wanted hear.
Its been three yrs since I moved to AR. My health has been up and down but I have made a very strong effort to get things as close to normal as I can. I have some really good Dr's and my Sister keeps me inline when I waver..... lol.
I have thinned my knife collection down. I have a bit less than 25% of what I used to own and that's enough at present. It does not keep me from looking at knives and thinking I should add that one to my collection. sooner or later there will be that one you just have to have and before ya know it, its in your collection......... collecting....... there is no cure for it. I admit it......... Addicted to collecting.
Other than just a bit of news...... not much going on in this little half horse town as my Mother would call Glenwood AR. I like it as its small. A spot in the road that you would hardly notice..... nothing exciting goes on here...... There is a Sonic and a McDonalds here...... Wow!. I think there is even a Subway sandwich shop here.... if there is I've never been there..
If ya feel like going to the big city...... Hot Springs is 30 minutes away and Little Rock is less than an hour from there. Well enough for today....... maybe more later........ Who knows Wally G.
