Hello friends. Things in TX are crazy at the moment, but we’re taking it hour by hour and day by day. We have a good number of elderly and vulnerable in our congregation, so we are doing our best to keep them home and protected. Also having to think very creatively about how to stay in contact and engaged with folks when we can’t see them in person due to social distancing.

So life is very busy, as I’m sure it is for many of you. You and your families all have my prayers, for what it’s worth.

stay safe out there.

Thanks Josh (@woodsjw) and also @mgrennier and everyone.

It’s Mother’s Day here in the UK. My mother is 75+ and has chronic respiratory issues, so we are keeping a very close eye on her. Her local church usually does visits to old folks homes and does small services for them. That’s been suspended for now. However, I was asked to make a travelling cross for their portable altar, so here is a picture of it almost complete. It needs final glue and finish coating. All hand turned from local cherry. It’s about 18 inches tall.

On a Filson note: a beachy walk in spring sunshine today, staying well away from others. Picnic supplies in the tin cloth tote. Drone and sundries in the field bag. Ultralight jacket, Alaskan guide, tin vest and wool cap for me.

After 13 days of quarantine (had major car issues 13 days ago and been working remote since before the lockdown) I finally put all my bags away until we can leave the house. Sad stack of filson. Worst thing is I really want to make a few local filson purchases, both for myself and a fellow member - yet sadly I can’t go out.

hope everyone is staying well!

This is a sad state of affairs. Sorry to hear about the car. Dang things! Now, if a car could only be made like a Filson bag, then we would be onto something. (Insert obligatory pre-Bedrock qualifications here to assuage OMG - 😉)

Hang in there everyone. We can do this!

Also, Speedy, your cross is beautiful. I love it. Happy Mother’s Day to your mom. May she have many more.

I love natural cherry. That is gorgeous.

Happy Mother’s Day, best wishes, and good health to your mom!

I can think of a few already. Land Rover Defender (pre 2000), Jeep Wrangler TJ, YJ, CJ, Toyota FJ40/FJ60, FJ55, Hummer H1 (and nothing else), Subaru WRX STI...just because I'm getting one once things get back to normal :lol:

The ultimate Trunk Go-Bag. This is one on my radar for when I get my new car. Gonna store some boots in the bottom compartment among all the essentials. Only problem is finding one for a reasonable price that wasn't abused or carried anything too stinky. I think they patina equally as good as a Pullman, thanks to the abundant amount of exposed brass and bridle leather.

@TinMan3 he's back, you guys were right, he didn't dupe a sucker into spending $3,200 for something you can simultaneously get for $600.

A much better deal (although still kinda pricey)

Thanks! It was an odd occurrence, the rear brakes locked up. I had to drive about half a mile bc I was between a drop off and the lake on a backroad. Probably came close to having a different outcome for the car they got so hot. Pic is the rotors when I stopped.

They look like a Formula 1 car's carbon fiber brakes during a race!

Spending a week at my parents for this quarantine game. Decided on these two; I really missed using my #246, it carries so well on my shoulder or in my hand.

I’m happy to report that my twin brother has come home, and has been staying with us for going on two weeks. He went 7 months not talking to anyone, this time was the worst yet. He seems to be healing mentally and spiritually. Family is the perfect medicine he needed

Oh my gosh! That’s horrible. I’m glad it’s past you now. At least, I hope it is. That is some picture!

I missed this, the most important part, when I read your post last night, OMG. Your prior posts about your brother have broken my heart. I am so happy to hear he is there and things are improving. I hope that continues to be the case.
