Weekend Open Thread: Twas the Week before All Hallows

Howdy folks…

I am sure that I will have a raft of Halloween memes next week, but as they say, “‘Tis the Season”. I don’t like Christmas theming before Thanksgiving, but that is a losing battle.


So how is everyone doing? We are at the halfway point between issues. The post-publishing reprieve is now over, and I have started pulling together my Knife News column for December. Strangely, I actually know 3 of the 4 already, so if I can make myself write ahead of deadline, I could have a very stress free Press Week. I also have a lacrosse scrimmage to coach on Tuesday, and a pair of games on both Saturday and Sunday of Halloween.

It was warm last weekend, but after some midweek rain we are back in the 60s.

It is always tailgate weather. Or weather for hanging out with your buddies. Or selling propane and propane related accessories.

I like their sense of humor.


Two big shows this weekend, one East:


And one West:

California Custom Knife Show


We have a winner of Vero Engineering #2. Congrats Jason K. The Wharncliffe and the Small Synapse are both still available. I will be doing a formal review of the remaining one.

Gerber sent us some new toys. Clockwise from upper left – Zilch, Fuse, Lockdown Pry, Lockdown Drive. They will be the weekly giveaways for the next month. Winner gets their choice of the 4.

Usual contest rules apply. 5 comments or replies count as your entries. If you are new to the blog, your first comments will be held in moderation until I can whitelist you. From then on out your comments post immediately.

No more themed memes. Just some of the better ones I found this week.

Truth. I can still recite a bunch of Eddie Murphy standup. Quietly. To Myself. In the woods. With no one around. I don’t like this new intolerance for free speech. Effing Fascists.

Ok. That one isn’t funny. Unless you are into dark humor.

Be ungovernable…

Risk is a part of life. Get over it.



This just made me laugh…

You can’t unsee it.

Tis the season…

First time I have seen this Django meme…

I dare someone to try that and tell us what happens.

Who’s a Good Boi…


Speaking of wise boys…(this has to be a boy who did this)

You can pants if you want to…

I sent that to my wife. It got the song stuck in her head. She was not happy.

Pretty much

Count me in Nobody.

That is about it for me. Hope you all have a great weekend. Keep us posted on what is happening in your neck of the woods, and good luck with the contest drawing.

Be well everyone.
