Back in Town

We made it back from NC successfully and then I felt a familiar sensation in my right ear which moved to my right tonsil overnight...that's right, I've got Strep Throat AGAIN! just two weeks since I had it last.

The upside to being sick is that I've lost some weight. I'm down 15 pounds already and plan to keep it off as I improve my fitness for the field.

Unfortunately, this strep is progressing just like the last time and this may be the last day for a few that I feel like even getting out of bed.

I found this great video on YouTube this morning on making a netting shuttle using a piece of wood and a Victorinox Farmer:

There's so much to bring you up to speed on if I could just get the energy to write...

Thanks for reading,

I'm glad you enjoyed the video. I had fun doing it in spite of the cut thumb.

I get tired of knife videos that are all talk and opinions but never show the knife in action or demonstrate a useful skill.
