Add some good toast on home made bread and I'm with you 100 percent!
What's your favorite Grand Slam/diner breakfast combo? I like:

1. Over easy eggs
2. A meat (scrapple if available, otherwise, usually sausage)
3. A dipping starch (preferably a biscuit)
4. Fruit

I'm hoping to get a loaf out tomorrow, but we'll see. The sourdough starter feels a little lethargic.

Day 57: Took the Spirit out hunting yesterday.  With the exception of a sizeable hawk, I didn't see anything.

Day 57

Newest addition to my Spirit family... welcome the XBS! I love BO Swiss Tools. I had an XBS that I had to return because the tools were all loose. Amazon dropped the price and I could not resist. This one is perfect and everything locks up tight. I just need a regular Spirit and I will have all the normal issue variants in my collection.

Day 31 + 23 = 54

Quiet Sunday here, first snow of the se  as on arrived as predicted at 11 AM.

No use today yet for my Spirit, inspired by it artistic shape, pictured it with the blossoming beauties in the window.

If I start and end the day above ground, it is a good day!

Hope yours is as good!

Day 58

More pics of the pliers of my new XBS. Used it yesterday and started to get some light wear on the color on the plier tips as to be expected. Should build a nice patina over time with use.

Day 58 of 60

Used flathead to open utility pole, it has electric socket with timer (2hour at time) so car gets heated for morning. There is no lock its just turns with flathead. Today was -25 celsius (-13F) outside and tomorrow morning bit warmer but its allways nice to have warm car when going somewhere.

Day 58

Used the scissors on the Spirit to open some hex bits, and then popped one in the hex wrench that came with it to take the clip of this Free T4 I'll be carrying next month. Swapping from Vic Leatherman to Leatherman SAK.

Day 59: Almost there!  Used the butter blade to cut open some Stabil for my lawn equipment. 

Comis has designed a really nice badge for this challenge for the 60 days participants.  It's currently with the mods for approval.  I'll let everyone know when it's ready to go.
