Hey Tai! You're scaring my kid!

Recommended Posts

ONce in a while...when I am on the computer...my little daughter sets on the desk with me as I read the stuff in here.

 

Well we ran across that picture of you picking your teeth...wearing a santie hat ...you know the one?

 

She thinks you look like the Grinch from the Dr. Suess book!

SHe's only twenty months old...but she's worried about you!

 

I told here you were a funny man, making faces! SHe ain't convinced!

 

Merry Christmas!

Shane

This'll only make sense if you've played Baldur's Gate II for the PC, but doesn't Don look uncannily like the cunning artificer Jan Jansen?

You should have seen what I looked like when I played Dracula (Think of Max Shrech in Nosferatu) or Jonathon in Arsenic and Old Lace (Pure Karloff)!

BOO!

Those were just my working duds, Tai. Flight suits make good coveralls for this kind of work. Miller's Surplus, $36. Hat came from the same place. We old, peacenik hippies just LOVE military surplus stores!

Dashing through the snow

In a one horse open sleigh

O'er the fields we go

Laughing all the way

Bells on bob tails ring

Making spirits bright

What fun it is to laugh and sing

A sleighing song tonight

 

Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells

Jingle all the way

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one horse open sleigh

Jingle bells, jingle bells

Jingle all the way

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one horse open sleigh

 

A day or two ago

I thought I'd take a ride

And soon Miss Fanny Bright

Was seated by my side

The horse was lean and lank

Misfortune seemed his lot

We got into a drifted bank

And then we got upsot

 

Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells

Jingle all the way

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one horse open sleigh

Jingle bells, jingle bells

Jingle all the way

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one horse open sleigh yeah

 

Jingle bells, jingle bells

Jingle all the way

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one horse open sleigh

Jingle bells, jingle bells

Jingle all the way

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one horse open sleigh

Frosty the Snowman

 

Frosty the Snowman

 

Was a jolly happy soul

 

With a corncob pipe and a button nose

 

And two eyes made out of coal

 

 

 

Frosty the Snowman

 

Is a fairytale they say

 

He was made of snow

 

But the children know

 

How he came to life one day

 

 

 

There must have been some magic

 

In that old silk hat they found

 

For when they placed it on his head

 

He began to dance around

 

 

 

Frosty the Snowman

 

Was alive as he could be

 

And the children say

 

He could laugh and play

 

Just the same as you and me

 

 

 

Frosty the Snowman

 

Knew the sun was hot that day

 

So he said let's run

 

And we'll have some fun

 

Now before I melt away

 

 

 

Down to the village

 

With a broomstick in his hand

 

Running here and there all around the square

 

Saying catch me if you can

 

 

 

He led them down the streets of town

 

Right to the traffic cop

 

And he only paused a moment when

 

He heard him holler stop

 

 

 

Frosty the Snowman

 

Had to hurry on his way

 

But he waved goodbye

 

Saying don't you cry

 

I'll be back again some day

 

 

 

Thumpety thump thump

 

Thumpety thump thump

 

Look at Frosty go

 

Thumpety thump thump

 

Thumpety thump thump

 

Over the hills of snow

Ok first of all...thanks to Tai for adding all the Christmas Carols...it wasn't all festive and everything til he started singing!

 

Second...I started the whole scary thing...and then Tai posted some pretty...ummm...remarkable pictures of some pretty ...ummmm...intense looking people....actually they weren't that bad...kind of nice to put faces to names...so in all fairness I will post a pic of me and my gal at the forge...a few years back....

 

Ok, so I am just as scary as the rest of you!  :P

Here we are...this was mt first sword..forge from 5160. It started as a piece of round bar....1 1/8 by 18 inches...we did all the work by hand...Wendy working the charcoal fire...me with a sledge, striking...and then later with my forging hammer...it was a good day! We were still outside then.Since we have moved locations and now have a real shop. WOuld you believe I miss that little forge we built...simpler times! If anybody is interested...I got pics of the outside forge we built...Tai and his bunch of maniacs inspired it....

Anyway here's the pic!

OK...here's a pic of that first outdoor forge....this was the first time I fired it. We were using hardwood charcoal...chopped to about 1/4 inch square pieces. This little forge would roll!

You fit right in Shane. :)

 

... all us bladesmiths seem to have this "knife fighter" folk hero thing going on. It's part of the mystique of bladesmithing.

Thanks Tai!

 

I miss forging outside sometimes...you know? Open sky...Birds, clouds, life all around...good times.

 

Wanna make it to your hammer in deal one of these days!

 

I lived in Sierra Vista a long time ago. Never got over that open desert sky....the summers wrecked me...but the winters...gorgeous!

I love the big boulder jumbles up in the Muggy Owens! you know?
