Weekend Open Thread: Don’t be an Unreasonable Chicken Edition

Howdy folks…

Hope everyone had a good Independence Day weekend. We went up to Ohio for my mother’s birthday. It was the first time I had seen her since Thanksgiving 2019.

My wife and I took the kids to the Cleveland Orchestra for the 4th. A night of patriotic music, fireworks, and a picnic on the lawn.

Not a bad way to spend the evening.

I saved a bunch by leaving the fireworks to the professionals this year.

This weekend is a big one for the American Bladesmith Society. ABS New England Hammer-in.

ABS New England Hammer-In

I am not sure where Auburn, Maine is. But if you are in the area…

A silly meme I know. But it made me laugh. This one too.

Anything big happening this weekend?


Since Hocky didn’t want his Boker hat from last week, Cmeat gets his choice of the grey one or the black one. Let me know.

As for this week’s giveaway, it is brought to you all by Vero Engineering. They are a newish company, founded by Joseph and Michelle Vero whose designs are OEM’d by Bestech. Joseph sent along 3 knives, and a couple of their Fulcrum prybar multitools.

This weekend’s giveaway is one of the Fulcrum Minis. You know the routine. Up to 5 comments or replies count as entries. If you are new to the blog, your comments will be held in moderation until I approve them. From that point on, if you allow cookies, your future comments will be automatically approved. Cmeat is eligible, since a hat is not enough of a prize to knock him from contention for this.

That being out of the way, back to the memes.

I don’t know if any of you have ever played guitar, but this is extremely on point…

The token knife meme of the week…

And speaking of bad decisions, Facebook continues to drop the ban hammer on people I know.

Have a good one folks. Try to stay out of trouble.
