Gary, I'm gettin' ready to start preparin' my trailer for the trip.  With all the hullabaloo about this new variant of the virus, I'm wondering if the show is still a "go"?

Well, went to my first Hammer-in.  Was quite an experience.  I've never seen so many Master Smiths in one spot.  The Demonstrations were a real treat for a first timer like myself.  Joshua States told me to be sure and take a lot of pictures to post here and to take notes.  Well, I followed his instructions..................well sort of!  I took a couple hundred pictures which will take me time to work up and cull through so when I do post I'm not using up a lot of band space.  As far as notes...........it's not possible for me to hold my camera and a note pad at the same time.  I don't use a neck strap for my camera like some folks.  I use a hand strap, so I'm basically strapped to the camera with one hand.  But all of the presenters were very clear with what they were showing and I really didn't have any questions I needed to write down.  Picked up some pointers but even my feeble old brain can remember them.  All in all it was a fun day.

Well, here's the face of one happy knife maker.  Alan Kirby passed the cutting and blade bending portion of his journey to an ABS Journeyman's rating.

That blade stress test is a real nail-biter!
