One Of My Hobbies

I like knives, I always have. I've owned, used, and trashed so many over the years (OK, decades) that I couldn't even begin to tell you how many I've owned. What I've discovered is that it has usually turned out to be the the simplest, smallest, and most innocuous ones that I have gotten the most use out of.

The TOPS A.L.R.T. falls into that category. Lightweight, solid, simple, and non-threatening to the sheeple (if you don't know what that means, you probably shouldn't be wasting your time at this blog).

It comes with a kydex sheath, a small carabiner clip, a ball chain, and a small LED penlight that runs on 3 button cells. Sharp as a razor and only about 3 3/8" long, it's great for cutting boxes, trimming paper, and other assorted household and office type supply room functions.

I can even see where it might come in handy for "social work".

I picked mine up for $23.13 and it's proven to be a real bargain so far. Give it a try, you won't be sorry.

My Tribute To George

I didn't always agree with his politics, but I always thought he was funny. I remember watching George Carlin on the Tonight show back in the 60s'.

Yeah, I'm that old!

I was lucky enough to get one last chance to see him perform in NJ just a couple of weeks before he died. (Note: I could have said "passed" or some other euphemism for death, but if you knew any of George Carlins material, you knew that he hated bullshit expressions for day to day realities)

My son and I got lost on the way to the town he was playing in, and wound up in PA. I got so frustrated that I almost turned around and went home.

I'm glad I didn't.

Wow, I now Have a Blog.

I don't really know where I'm going with this. I just wanted to see what was involved in setting one of these things up. Turned out to be easier than I thought. Hopefully I can put up some interesting material, as well as work on the format in the near future.

Oh well, that's enough for now.
