There could easily be a blog about bathroom stalls where the original lock is broken.
some places you’re lucky to even have locks
Be careful. Go with Neil every time when you are out. Please.
You think I’m so old I need Neil to help me?
Sounds like it.
Isn’t Neil old enough for a pistol, yet?
What about a pocket knife?
David Crooks He’s got one of those. Unless he lost it.
David Crooks He likes to whittle on branches.
A half-decent hobby or craft shop probably has some carving kits – with soft wood and a design. Once he gets used to the idea of planning, then you can just go to Ace Lowe’s Depot and buy blocks of soft wood. Does he know how to resharpen it yet?
David Crooks No, he needs his uncle to help him.
🙂 When David was a Cub Scout, I volunteered to teach his den all about knives, including knife safety (required for them to earn the card that gave them permission to buy a Scout knife (basically a blue Swiss Army knife) and/or earn knife-related badges. I brought in … a whole bagful. Talked about blade grinds, blade shapes, different steels, handle materials, what shapes are good for what use and why. They did pretty good.
David Crooks Neil would LOVE that. He’d probably be happy to move in with you. You’re the cool uncle.
Someone has to be.
David Crooks Amen to that.
Every time I turned around (last visit) he was using a knife – on apples and anything else he could carve on. He told me about his knife a bunch of times!! He seemed pretty careful but I didn’t want to look too closely and see any cuts.
Having his own knife is one of those things that tells a boy he’s on his way to being a man. There aren’t a lot of such things, anymore.
