I worked in the forge room the other night. I scavenged a couple old horseshoes, a rock and a washer. I made this old cowboy warming himself by the fire. My daughter-in-law says that his fire needs some help, but you get the idea. I thought he was neat. One of my friends said that he could see my artistic side coming out! I never thought about it that way. I can usually just bend words in a pleasing way…this steel bending is very new to me.

I will say that I am enjoying this new hobby. Now that I am retired, I have more time to work and play with it. I can see a whole world opening up. This hobby is only limited by a man’s imagination. I should be fine, because my imagination is practically limitless!

The fields are drying out. Our planting will commence soon. The garden too will be off and growing soon. Hay fields are looking very good and the pastures are lush with grass. The timber harvest is started, so my forge time is on hold a bit. I don’t mind. I waited for a long time to do this, so working it in around my other passions, is no problem.
