I say "Mr" because I don't know ya. No offense intended. :D
Little Miss Darci, thanks you dear. It is especially appreciated as you are so young but obviously been taught good manners. All older folks love to see a child with good manners & it makes us like & respect them even more.

Mack1 --- You most certainly can call me Ken, most folks do ecept youngsters -- you aren't a youngster are you . Quite often I'll address someone as Mr. Bruce or Mr. whoever as I was raised this way -- guess it's an old Southern custom.Ray -- I actually have Eli's knife in the vise doing some prelim. work now --- more to come. Will call you on this.

Wade -- I worked all day & part of the night on a folder by & for Kevin Casey. Thanks for the well wishes.

Cad & Stabber -- thanks to you too.
Sorry I missed the celebration. Hope you had a great day, Mr. Hurst! :)
