Ful­ly aware that you have been inun­dat­ed with pho­tos of @meetmancha late­ly, I tried in vein to take a cre­ative pho­to of this beau­ti­ful red mush­room. I was thwart­ed. You all have the worst luck. 😊

After a few weeks of fin­ish­ing oth­er shop projects, Trent final­ly got a chance to start back on some actu­al met­al work today. This is the begin­ning of yet anoth­er hand­craft­ed knife from Pur­ga­to­ry Iron­works.

Well, I was prayed for in the Pub­lix park­ing lot yes­ter­day. They held my hands and every­thing. And by a real life Gideon and his wife no less! . I was also sent home with a copy of the New Tes­ta­ment and instruc­tions to read the chap­ters of John. . One of the charms of being down here in the south is the will­ing­ness of peo­ple to share their faith with total strangers. As a north­ern­er, this is a very unusu­al expe­ri­ence. . I find that the longer my hair and beard get, and the rougher the day I’ve had, the more like­ly I am to receive such treat­ment. Per­haps I look like a lost soul when I’m scruffy. . Regard­less of the why, and despite the fact that I don’t even remote­ly share their beliefs, I’m always touched by the ges­ture. So, thank you for the prayers kind strangers, and hap­py trav­els your­selves!
Trent's new shop is coming together. The beam is built and half installed at the moment. The other half is going up in a few minutes. Down here in the south, these pole barn style buildings are very common. I'm guessing I haven't spent enough time on farms in Canada to really have an appreciation for whether or not these are common at home, but I haven't ever seen one being built so this is very interesting to see firsthand.
Le sigh. This is why we can’t have nice things @meetmancha. I left you out­side to enjoy nature, not to get a full body greas­ing.

Tren­ton Tye had some beau­ti­ful #geor­gia red dirt deliv­ered today for an upcom­ing project. @meetmancha decid­ed that it need­ed a thor­ough once over. #Dog­sOfIn­sta­gram #Inspec­tion­Passed #Dog­DoesThat­Work #DogsThat­Should­ntRe­al­ly­Work

Hanging out with Trenton Tye and apprentice Judah today. We got a visit from armourer and all all around great guy, Mike Moulton. He let me try on his battle helmet. And then hit me repeatedly in the head with a rattan sword. All in all, a great day!

Sooo, Texas. Can we talk about these sur­prise gators? This one was small enough to play nice­ly with @meetmancha, but I don’t want to meet its mama.. Are we just sup­posed to nev­er leave the safe­ty of our lit­tle Casa on wheels?
