Misses TG-24 had to work this weekend (working in a nursing home for people with dementia, she has to work every other weekend :().

So the rest of us didn't get to go anywhere and instead just stayed in the backyard, enjoying the nice weather.  Well, me and our little girl that is, our oldest son had to study because his final  exams begin on Monday, and our youngest son... well, he seems to be glued onto his PlayStation controler... ::)

Anyway...

Here's my EDC "backyard style" setup  :D.















Of all the guitars I own this "Little Martin" is the one I use the most, it's so easy and fun to pick up, be it lying in the couch while watching TV, or on a sunny day like today, in the backyard enjoying that spring/summer vibe.  And it just got new strings and some TLC last weekend, so it's ready to go again.

And the Hohner Marine Band harmonica, well, I can't play it that well, but I'm teaching myself bit by bit,  and time flies while I'm playing around with it, so it must be fun, right?

Oh, and here's a pic with a knife in it as well...



A good old Opinel N°7 Carbon, my favorite knife for peeling an apple, or cleaning some carrots.  It may not have the most prettiest patina, but it is one from real use, so  :).

Thanks for watching, stay safe guys  :salute:.

 :cheers:

Sitting in the backyard and making music - simply good.  Nice simple guitar. What wood is the light front made of?
Funny photo at the pond, the goldfish seem interested - or just hungry?
Thanks for the photos Eric.  :salute:

Not sure if this pic belongs here - Let me know if it should be elsewhere

Isnt there a thread about spotting MTs when you are out??

Anyway looks like LM are getting a bit a free publicity in this ad I recently saw online.

Thanks my friend  :cheers:.

Awesome pic of Winterthur, I hope I can visit it some time in the future, for now I will just have to  put it on my "places to visit" list  ;).

The top of the guitar is made of one solid piece of Sitka Spruce, and despite its small size, it still has the real "Martin sound".

And yes, the goldfish were very interested...

I found myself humming the Jaws theme  :D.

Hey Huntsman,

I believe there's a topic where you can post multitools you've spotted in films,  TV series, commercials etc...

That being said, we don't have any real rules here, let alone that we're going to tell someone what he or she can or can't post.

To use the words of Axl Rose, "my way, your way, anything goes..."  ;).

And indeed, some great free publicity for Leatherman there, it almost seems like a Leatherman add.

Thank you Eric. If you really end up in Winterthur, let me know! It's my hometown, my birthplace, place of residence, half my relatives live here that's why I love this place. BUT: it is certainly not a tourist highlight when you visit Switzerland. Winterthur has a few famous museums, a nice, large, car-free old town and lots of forest all around. Always in the shadow of the "big" Zurich and IMO missing mountains and a lake.

Indeed spruce! We have some old spruce and fir furniture at home, I like this type of wood. Didn't know it was used for guitars.

Today we had crazy 36°C Watching this guy lounging on his Leahterman deck chair and especially watching the fish swim makes me want to do the same!

So we packed our stuff and drove to the nearby Thur river. My son and I love river swimming. Of course, sausages could not be missing either...

Hey Peter,

Beautiful pics as always mate, oh how much I love Switzerland  :dd:.

And that "sausages at the river" pic is so perfect, those are the moments that will become beautiful memories which will last a lifetime for the "little ones", great parenting my friend  :tu:.

Thanks for sharing those beautiful pictures here  :hatsoff:.

@Echotech: Thank you!  :cheers:

@Eric: Thanks for the kind words. :salute:
Good parenting, we try, we really try - sometimes better, sometimes worse, like most parents.
But going out into nature, doing physical activity, being offline and keeping yourself busy without consuming a lot, we don't think that's wrong.



But of course we can also simply be part of the consumer society...

Friday to Sunday was Albanifest. One of the largest old town festivals in Europe with dozens of funfair rides, dozens of concerts, hundreds of food stands, bars and party tents. I'm not a fan of big crowds, but I make an exception at my hometown festival! A huge, peaceful party with over 150,000 guests. The police report three temporary arrests, the ambulance report zero! serious injuries and luckily the firefighters only had to fight their thirst.

A few impressions that unfortunately only show part of the festival. After we had visited our personal highlights, the crowd soon became too much for us and we fled the city. It was still on a "relatively quiet" Saturday afternoon. In the evening and at night there are many more people...







Do you see the people?  :dwts:










One of the few quiet places




Yummy

Finally found the time to upload some pics from the last month or so...

First some pics from a bike ride Misses TG-24, our little girl and yours truly went on 4 weeks ago.

We tried to use as much gravel/dirt roads as possible to ride to our favorite hiking spot to take a short break there, before we head home again.

Can you spot the multitool in the first pic?

Hey Eric, thank you.  :cheers:

Of course I can see the multi tool in the first picture, it's a Leatherman Signal, right?  :D

Thanks for the pics, must be great riding a bike in your area.
Here with us it's always uphill or downhill, especially uphill I'm not so good... :-[

Hey Peter,

Yep, the Signal, the Leatherman that surprised me the most to be honest.  When I saw the first pics of it, I swore I would never buy it.

But when I held it in my hand for the first time,  it was love at first sight, can't explain it...

And yes,  biking over here is pretty straight forward, only two "hills" near our home, both of them only around 45m "high".  I used to ride up and down those hills from every side possible, going up and down 6 or 7 times in one hour, back when I was less heavy and more fit.

For now I'm already happy when I get on my bike, I hope to find my better shape back eventually.

Well, a knife/multi-tool that you fall in love with when you hold it in your hand is one to keep!

It's the same with my condition. Wish the extra weight was just muscle...  :shrug:

But at the moment it's so hot here that we prefer swimming to cycling.

I’m about to experience that heat, leave for the UK today for 3 weeks, going to be 39c when I arrive according to latest forecast

I’m coming out of a cold winter (gets colder than you think here I suspect) so is going to be a massive shock

Hey John,

This is way too much for my family and me, and we've been slowly building up to these kind of temperatures, can't imagine how it most be to come from mid-winter into this...

Stay safe mate,  and don't forget to hydrate  :drink:.

Just catching up again after some time away. Brilliant pics all, as ever. And I'll add my weight to Winterthur being worth a visit. :)

One of the main reasons I've not been around is that, over the last 7 weeks, I've spent more time out of the UK than in it... I'll be sorting the photos out at some point, although there's a distinct lack of SAK/MT pics as I've been on hand luggage only, so security clearance was obviously an issue. However, I did get a SAK themed photo from a new country, so that will be in there. When I get chance to pick out a few for here. :D

Hey Michael,

Welcome back my friend, we all go walkabout from time to time, but we always return here  ;).

Can't wait to see your pics, and you know,  we love to see a SAK in the pic,  but we evenly love scenery pics without a SAK in them.

Glad you're back mate  :cheers:.
