I mentioned earlier you could hunt turkey with a 9 iron around here. Wrong....I could have choked up on a pitching wedge. Turkey hen shitting on my car this morning. Almost had to shove the stupid thing off... ::)

@ stoneaxe

Do you know what caught my eye with your turkey picture? Your roof racks. If you don't mind me asking, what brand are they?

That's some incredible work.  But make no mistake, I am a paint by numbers guy, without instruction, I'd only be tying granny knotts ;D

I can actually do some of those. I made it a practice when I was floating around in the gulf of Tonkin to get to know people in every department. I asked a senior chief bosun's mate to teach me knot tying. He and I did most of the fancy knot treatments on the rails and side-ropes on the quarterdeck of the Enterprise. He told me no one in his division really wanted to learn. I don't remember much off the top of my head, but I did so much I'm sure it's all just a marlinspike, and low stool, and some light white stuff away.

I did this lanyard on my switchblade on autopilot.
