17 Jun 19

Leather is a common choice for shoemakers and is often seen in jackets. It is a unique material with aesthetic appeal but there is a caveat; you must care for it in a specific way. No throwing it in the washing machine!

Me, as writer

The 1911 Colt Government Model had been peace-tied. Someone had threaded a plastic zip-tie through the gun’s notched hammer and trigger guard in a vain attempt to make it “safe.” Tim ran his manicured hand over the checkered, wooden grips.  Not many 1911s came through his hands any more.  This was no collectible, no ornament.  […]

Unrealistic expectations

After three days of sailing, land finally came into view. A large island, with a small fortified city on one end, cut off from the rest of the island by steep mountains and dense jungles.  To my dismay, however, the captain curved away from that crest of civilization, turning the ship in a large arc […]
