After my swinging funky real estate pad deal fell through in December, I finally closed on a new home this week east of the river in MSP. It is a good house, and my sharpening station will finally be indoors. Right now I am dealing with 5 contractors to do some improvements, but in the future my kids will walk over a bridge and through some woods only 300 meters to school and my wife will have a 5-7 minute commute to work.
I must have a kick-as$ knife gathering there in the coming year.
And how about this for a give-away? I'm thinking I will use airline miles to pay for someone's ticket, pick that person up at the airport, and s/he can lodge at my new digs and hang out with MSP knife knuts. I think that would be kind of cool to import a fellow knife knut to a MN gathering. Spread the wealth and cheer.
Just thinking at this point -- and I am tired as sh!t.
