Thought fer the day, / add yours if you like

There's the quick and efficient way of doing things, or more exciting, challenging and time consuming ways.

Like for example if you want a knife, you can go buy one at a store. It's cheap, does the job fine. Or you can learn to forge one yourself, play with fire, bash metal, and craft various other materials and 20 years later, you will still some day be making that perfect knife that you always wanted to make. But you've had lots of fun (and frustration) along the way.

A ways back in time when I was in a low spot in my life

my only friend in the world was an old hound dog.

one evenin we were havin a beer or three,..... or more, ( he was a good ol' hound,  he liked beer )

Well you can understand my surprise when he spoke these words to me.

He said my friend this ol' world is a tough place to be in and Iv'e

got some philosophical words fer you to chew on, and they've always worked fer me'''''

If you can't eat it,

And if you can't fight it,

And if you can't fuck it,

Just piss on it  !!

And on that day it occurred to me,   just how smart an ol' hound can be

This board is refreshing apolitical, so this is a bit risky for me to post.  However, the current political climate has driven me to coin another phrase:

"I have the right to be offended by anything you do.  However, I choose to waive that right because I am willing to assume you meant no harm."

I think all of us lose sight of the fact that simplicity is one of the

greatest things that we all too often forget to appreciate, be it pleasure, or the process of work.

The K.I.S.S. principal applies to all things great and small ......................;)

There's really no point in holding on to a mistake just because you have a lot of time invested in it.

Josh, I don't know how many times I have told someone something close to that about building a forge.

Forges, knives & other projects, jobs, relationships, the list goes on.

Everything I ever needed to know, I learned in kindergarten. Starting with you should always take a nap after lunch.

From my fathers school teacher in 1935 which was  a great inspiration to him and has been my own understanding as long as I can remember.

Sometimes the road less traveled is less traveled for a very good reason.

The good book says the Lord won't give you more than you can bear. However there is times when we are speaking I have to remind him I am almost to that point!!

C Craft Customs ~~~ With every custom knife I build I try to accomplish three things. I want that knife to look so good you just have to pick it up, feel so good in your hand you can't wait to try it, and once you use it, you never want to put it down ! If I capture those three factors in each knife I build, I am assured the knife will become a piece that is used and treasured by its owner! ~~~ C Craft
