    Nice! Do you read and write Hebrew? I have always been fascinated by it being written right to left.

    I rescued a cast iron skillet at a yard sale for $1. It was heavily rusted and gunked up; I used a wire wheel in a drill to get it down to bare metal, then re-seasoned it. That was several years ago, and it’s going strong, and will be for many years to come. I love cooking in cast iron, I’ve just got to keep someone else in my house from letting one sit in soapy water. I have to periodically re-season our pieces, but she is beginning to do better with that. I especially like cooking steaks in cast iron, better than grilling!

    Yes I do read it. I can write it, but not well, as I don’t need to write it often. My knowledge is mostly Biblical/prayer-book Hebrew; just a bit of modern conversational Hebrew. BTW, the letter on my Hebrew pen stand is “seen”- the equivalent of “S”. It is my initial in Hebrew.

    I have now finished the hardest part- the drilling. I have painted the top & glued in the metal cups.

    There is still finishing work to do. That will wait until warmer weather, as it needs to be done outdoors.

    I shot in a club tournament today. I scored 380/450. Not epic but I always miss a few shots at this type of target (gold, red, blue, etc) and today I didn't miss even one.

    Glad to know it! Hope it goes well & you feel OK after. I am mostly OK, but my shoulder is a bit sore. This will pass, but no archery today.

    No side affects at all, shoulder not sore. The second shot may be a different story. My brother and his wife, as well as a couple of friends all felt fairly sick and achy after the second shot. My primary care doctor said it helps to take Tylenol a couple hours prior to the second shot.

    edit: I got the Moderna shot

    Lined the case back and bracelet of the dive watch with thin self-adhesive cotton felt (moleskin, it's sometimes called). Absorbs sweat and reduces irritation. Took 5 minutes to do and works great.

    Took my yellow Labrador Retriever to the vet to get a Cytopoint shot for allergies, and an annual heart worm preventative injection. My opinion is if you’re going to have a dog, or any other animal or livestock, you have a responsibility to take care of them.

    I shot in the Mid-Atlantic sectionals today. That is, as its name suggests, a regional archery tournament. It is shot at a bunch of clubs in 7 states, and then the info is put together, to see who the winners are. I shot 272, out of a possible 300. That, for me, is a pretty good score. I won’t know the overall results for a while, but there arent’t always a lot of women in my age category, so I may yet be a winner.

    @9nein9 that looks great. Is it a repair or a whole new knife?

    Congrats Patrick. Swiss Army knives are my favorite for daily carry. I keep the Pioneer handy.

    Thanks Charlie. The pioneer is a very versatile tool as well. I'm looking at buying a Spartan next .

    My daily carry for months is an old Camillus camp knife. It has the same features as that one. A man should always carry a pocket knife, and a boy if he can be trusted with it. Girls too.

    A few months back I gave my big retriever Buck to a friend with a large yard and other dogs like him, so he's much happier than being cooped up in my apartment. But I got the dog itch again so we went to the shelter yesterday.

    This was a sad, withdrawn dog who s-l-o-w-l-y warmed to us (through the bars) over the 2+ hours we waited to see her...me smuggling a pork rind to her helped. The cage tag only said "pitbull mix" but I'm not seeing much pit apart from some brindle stripes and maybe the shape of the upper head. But she's on the small side and all agree she looks like she's maybe pit crossed with Jack Russell. What an odd combo that would be.

    Anyway, she's done a 180 since being sprung. A tail-wagging velcro sweetie and pretty smart. Her inexplicable original name, Devil, is now Daisy.

    Weird thing...we haven't once heard her bark, not at the pound and not here either.

    @gorgo2 enjoy your new best friend!

    I shot a new personal best today- 281/300 @ 20 yards.
    Also, I got the results from the Mid-Atlantic shoot. I came in 3rd in my shooting class. (That sounds a lot more impressive if you don’t know how many shooters there were in that class; I’ll give you one guess.)
