Began the day above 50 with a hint of rain and dropped into the 40's by afternoon. Good day but better if I were home working on a stick.

42F and sunny here in Tulsey Town. Landscapers arriving any minute with the first load of rocks for the back yard. You just can't have too many rocks.

Took the morning off work to direct the project, and I will have some time to whittle on a diamond willow stick. Great day for a walk in the woods, I shoulda taken the afternoon off too!

49 in Tulsa, just dropped off my wife and daughter for the Tuls Run 5K, the grandkids are under the weather so I'm not doing a 3K walk by myself.

I wonder whether walking sticks are permitted on those "fun runs?"

It was 33 degrees when we got up this morning, but sunny and warming quickly. I plan to sand on my Doc's retirement gift, and then epoxy the brass Veritas tip in place late today. With luck we will have time to take a walk on the trails at Turkey Mountain and maybe even stumble onto another decent stick there.

Next week looks like a busy one, so whatever I plan to accomplish with sticks this week needs to happen on the weekend.

Have a great Sunday.

Overcast, warm, at 0945 already 65 and rising. Looks like rain, it rained a trace last night.

Discussing details of a planned stick with my brother. He'd like one of the cedar sticks that I cut at his east Texas place a year ago. He's a retired policeman, now working summers at Rocky Mountain National Park. I have a really nice Arlington Police Department badge/pin and a handcuffs pin that I can embed for him. Excited about making one for my little brother (he's actually bigger, but six years younger).

Sunny and 54 here in T-Town, wish I weren't at work, although I do have fun here too.

Had a long "breakfast" meeting with an old Marine from Indiana, passing through Tulsa. Didn't get to work until 11:30. At noon, it's 59 degrees, overcast, with occasional sprinkles. It rained most of the night, and we needed the moisture. Leaves are turning with more color than we have had in years, although I hear that the Ozarks are disappointing.

At 0930, still only 42 and overcast, but the clouds are clearing and soon we will feel the warmth of the sun (sounds like a Beach Boys tune).

I think "tornado alley" is spreading!

Back online, returned from Camp Pendleton and our first Marine Corps Birthday Ball. The young ones were impressive, and the old ones, well.........we are just a bunch of old farts, joking about the past and how too many hard landings ruined our knees. Or who got drunk and tore up a Green Beret bar in Chu Lai, etc. :D

39F and dropping. This morning, family photos. Son wanted a couple with sticks

In 30 min., family begins arriving again. I'd on board to grill 21 burgers, no matter how cold. I'd better light the fireplace on the porch. Thank goodness I have some dry wood!

Well, the piñon in the fireplace made it tolerable, and my son-in-law and my daughter-in-law's mom kept me company. I had more Malbec than is recommended, but didn't get loopy. It was an enjoyable evening.

You know it's cold outside,

when you walk outside and it's cold!

Son is here, took the morning off work, or until they leave to see friends around town.

I've never been consistent at carving the bird. It was a lot easier when I was a kid, and all I had to do was go quail hunting with my dad and provide some of the quail.

Eat, drink, and be merry!

Cobalt, don't you think we need a Thanksgiving stick, with a short knife edge for doing the honors on the turkey? :thumbsu:
