Wow what great saddles. Get back to it. I am sure there is a market for them.

The bottom one, reminds me of what some call a Plantation saddle.

The bottom one is a copy of the 1847 Dragoon saddle I think I made 3 or 4
one  I rode ,   sold 2  (the 1st. one & the 3rd )
I made 2 Hopes ...I have a photo somewhere of them ...sold both ,but did ride both
McClellan's I was most prolific, lost count but probably 20 +

Sadly, these days , the labor and materials there'd be little profit to set up again  :-\
besides arthritis in my hands would flair up slowing the whole affair....  :(

when planets align...do the deal !

Greetings all.

Rainy and 45 today. Fall has beset us.

I went fishing last night, except I forgot my tackle box, so I put a shiny gum wrapper on a hook I found by the river and used that until it got snagged and broke off.  Then I went for a hike and saw an elk cow.

Major, I know that the guy we bought this horse from makes saddles on the side, and he says the arthritis is a bit tough. He also priced his at $8k :o

Looks like my life may get shaken up a bit here soon: more to come on that.

When we found out retiring or not had about the same income, actually a little better on retiring it was no having to think about it.   In fact Rita was at SS office checking the details and I was down the street parked so I could let here off and pick her up at the door.   She called, said I was getting a phone call when she hung up, answer the questions you are retiring.   Was between jobs and no one wanted me so I didn't argue.   

Things are turning around quick now on the health, ready to start getting the workshop ready starting next week, hour or two a day.   Despite the problems I got a lot done this year, got some excellent files docs on cooking with pictures part of editing my book which I haven't forgotten, planned on getting certain pictures this year.    Got some people think some of that ought to be put in pamphlet form to sell, might be a good idea, winter projects.

Besides, retiring would make it easier for you to make it to a Muster.   ;)   I think you would be hooked, we never have too many old fat guys. ;D

Overcast day again today.

Made biscuits and bacon this morning. Now got Patton on- while my boss lady is at Walmart. She reported in a few minutes ago. They are no longer requiring mask of the directional patterns in the  isles.

Is that company wide? I haven't shopped there since they started requiring masks. As for the direction arrows, I just ignored them, but on particularly ornery days I made it a point to shop "against the arrows"

I've seen the arrows in the grocery store, never saw the first "indigenous person" of color  ::)

The "wheel house of interest" was a nice Romanian Mil-spec AK-47  my running pard had been looking for.
He bought it....US made  enhanced trigger , chrome line barrel , all wood furniture .

Morning all.

45 and raining here. May go drown some worms later, but that depends on if I get called in to work today or not. I’m hoping not.  They made me move 30 car batteries yesterday and I saw more on the pallet when I left.  ::)

I may try to make a migration to a toy store as well today. I’m thinking of trading my M70 featherweight in to snag something in a cheaper caliber to shoot. The 280 is a great caliber, but at $1.70 a pop, it’s stretching my wallet a bit thin. Cabela’s had a nice early model Ruger M77 in ‘06 a while back, and a few other items of interest.
