How about a .22 caliber rifle cleaning rod from SEARS?
I have no idea when this was purchased or when it was
made. I inherited it from my beloved stepfather and
never had the opportunity to ask him about it.

The good old days to be certain.

Once again it is Knife Day here at El Rancho De La Tex. Today
I am sharing a knife that I bought in 1984 at Santa Monica Place.
This Victorinox Swiss Army Knife model is called the "Motorist".
It has been out of production for quite some time. I bought the sheath
for it a few days later. That metal rod is a honing rod. This was actually
my very first for real quality well made knife. It marks that spot.

I have this really bad habit of taking knives that I like and locking them
away and never really using them. I did that with this knife. I mean, look
at that sheath. It is almost thirty seven years old. Yikes.

I goofed and did not take a photo of all of the blades and tools out, but it
is pretty standard. No corkscrew though. As I have written before,
I was never a fan of the corkscrew and I don't have a use for it.

This "Motorist" knife is very special to me.

This is the Wenger Swiss Army Knife that I am still carrying in
my bag or purse. I have been carrying this knife for over 15 years.

Besides all of the standard tools, this knife has PLIERS...
and all in a pretty compact package. Perfect for me.

If you would have just TOLD me that this fake grass
would add some nice atmosphere to this outdoor dining
area, I would have said, "Yeah... right."

But when I see it in person... it kinda does.

Toilet paper shelves.
A self-fulfilling prophecy it seems.

I like this tree that is kind of growing through a wall
that is further out on our property. It ain't so good
for the wall, but I like how it looks.

The Millennium Falcon manufactured by the Corellian
Engineering Corporation via Mattel. You KNOW I love
this freighter. It was cheap. It is cool.
I bought it for my desk.
