Sorry folks, I couldn’t come up with a catchy and amusing title. I tried. The novelty of the situation has worn a bit thin at this point, and it doesn’t look like it will be ending in the foreseeable future. They have turned up the screws in Tennessee. I made it into the office for 2 hours, since press day is next week and we have an issue to get out. Plus Mark’s house (the Knife Magazine office) is on the way to the Kroger. So after next Monday, I will probably limit my stops in to when I am making a food run once a week.
Of course, trying to work from home has its own challenges when you have an 11 and 9 year old…
I was never a homeschool hater, but I have a newfound respect for those that take on that mantle voluntarily. I don’t think I could do this for the next 9 years. I will stick to coaching lacrosse and helping with Cub Scouts. Someday…
Obviously, there are no knife shows going on at the moment. Some have rescheduled, so be sure to check out our Events Calendar for the latest.
I haven’t forgotten about the giveaway, courtesy of Browning Knives. Last week’s Browning Wicked Wing flipper is on its way to Oregon, to Jason K. Turns out to be a late birthday present, since his was a bit of a bummer: (his comment refers to last week’s meme).
Jason is part owner of Solera Brewery, whose business, like so many, is getting absolutely pummeled. If you want to help out a regular contributor to our comment community here at KnifeMagazine.com, he has a merch page with tshirts, hats, and other such things.
You can also like their Facebook Page if you are so inclined.
This week we are giving away a pair of items from Browning Knives’ 2020 new product lineup. There is a Range ball-bearing flipper, and the second of the Night Seeker 2 clip-on flashlights.
Same rules as always for the Weekend Open Thread. Your first 5 comments or replies are counted as entries, and Jason sits this one out, but is of course welcome to comment.
The rest of you, have at it. Let us know how you are holding up. We are all going to get through this, but in the mean time let us at least have a little fun in this community we are building. Speaking of that, what did you all think of the Word Search?
Have you given it a try? The Al Mar is a nice knife.
Finally, I leave you with this inspirational thought…
Be safe folks.
