Work, work, work..

So here I sit. Day 3. I worked like 9 days straight of classes, shift work, and teaching, and I finally got 3 days off. 3 whole days. This is day 3.. Can I go back to work now?

Peaches is coming to visit next week.. I haven't seen him in a while. We are headed over to renew some licenses, and take a class together.

I figure since I have you here, I might as well post a PIG pic..

Since I am on a bit of a knife kick here of late.. I'll post my lastest honey.. I just ordered a brand new Busse Combat Grade Badger Attack Tac!!

Here's the skinny from the Busse Website:

The Badger Attack TAC packs an enormous amount of horsepower into a relatively small package. With a blade length of just 5 inches, the BA TAC is an excellent choice for most military personnel and will serve as an ideal "day hiker" or rescue blade.
The drop point blade and extremely comfortable TAC handle are available in an assortment of colors and finishes.

COMBAT GRADE Badger attack TAC

Blade Steel -
Blade Length - 5"
Overall - 10.75"
Thickness - .187"
Handle -
TAC Micarta
Base Price - $227.00 (add $35 for the Magnum Handles)

{tan blade with optional snakeskin handles pictured}

Why am I willing to pay several hundred dollars for a knife? Because of Jerry Busse's Guarantee: "We guarantee against any and all unintentional MAJOR damage forever. "

And THAT my friend, is one hell of a statement to make, and I have seen him back it up. Fortunately, it doesn't happen very offen!

It'll be about 14 weeks before the knife arrives.

Jeez.. The Baby will be here before the knife! Holy Crap.. We're havin a BABY in 12 weeks!

Hey Mike,

Great to see you yesterday on the Dog Creek Mission. What an epic adventure! Your thumb looked pretty bloody and I heard on the news that it was broken. How is it doing? Things got pretty chaotic in the morning with all those teams coming together. Fortunately, your broken thumb was the only casualty. It could have easily been worse in a couple of areas, but everything came out well. I'm a little sleep deprived and a tad sore, but I should be recovered for my St. Helens climb by tomorrow.

Take care, Jamie
