St. Patrick's Day is March 17th. In preparation, I've whittled a bunch of little Leprechaun pins. If you all remember, last week I had a very bad day, that included breaking the tip off my favorite carving knife. This is the knife, after the tip was reground and sharpened. Since there is a slight difference in the shape of the knife blade tip, I'll have to get used to the knife all over again. I was my favorite knife, but it will have to earn that place all over again....It's funny how one gets used to something and then nothing else seems to work as well. I guess there's all sorts of parallels to this idea too.
