HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL! I didn't do much yesterday but help Deb celebrate her Birthday. New Year's eve is always a double holiday for us. :)

Today we're just messing around, I haven't gotten dirty, made anything, broke anything, heck I barely got dressed till after lunch. I'll have to go pick up something for dinner but I think I can handle that.

All the best everybody.

Frosty The Lucky.

nice big bowl of homemade black eyed peas and rice with a lot of bacon in it and the onions fried up in the bacon fat before going into the crock pot last night. Dark day but i did get out to use my postvise to remove more 20P nails  from the hardwood blocks I have left from the load of dunnage wood my wife is burning in the woodstove.  Pound them with a smithing hammer and then grab the block in the vise and use the crowbar to pull them.  Good practice for smithing; now I just need a project for 10+ pounds of nails.

Well they sure stack better in the truck and at the house and in the woodstove without 3" of nails protruding down the side.  Also my wife doesn't have to deal with the rusty nails as she is the stove user.  Another gray day but it's supposed to clear up this afternoon and I hope to hike up to the valley rim.

Happy belated New Years. Had way too much fun in Pittsburgh for the celebration and spent the first of the year rehydrating and relaxing. Lol. Think I'm getting too old for that.

Well it's back to work and I wish everyone a happy, healthy, rewarding new year.
