    My brother built me a knife

    I have not seen my brother for 10 years. He is one year younger than me. He was living in Ca and running a large electrical company and sold it about 6 years ago and moved to Idaho. He spends his days riding horses and hunting in the hills and has taken up making knives so I am told. We haven't talked much. Just the way life happens.

    Last year when I was sick he called and left me a message. About 3 months ago I sent him a box of my favorite cigars as I heard he enjoys them. We were once close but life has pulled us apart.

    Yesterday I got this box in the mail. Just a return address. Nothing more. Inside was this beautiful knife. The feel is amazing and it’s so sharp it scares me. Pretty much how I would have had a custom skinner made including the choice of scales.

    We may not be the chattiest of siblings but we do know each other well.

    Thanks Mike..

    Couple more. That’s him and I, 45 years ago, riding on our Boonie Buggy on our property in Boylston,Ma. (I'm driving) It's A stripped down 1956 Chevy Apache pickup.

    No air bags back then....just air... Three on the tree.

    We sure did have a lot of fun.

    What a great gift. You don't have to talk everyday to be close. But it is a good reason to pick up the phone.

    Everything that happens is either endurable or not. If it’s endurable, then endure it. Stop complaining. If it’s unendurable . . . then stop complaining. Your destruction will mean its end as well.
