Rain Rain go away

We are having nothing but rain it seems...its good to get the normal fall soaking, but maybe not with so many beans yet in the fields...

I wanted to pour a lead ferrule on the patch knife I made this weekend for the Green River set, but couldnt get a long enough rain free window to do it...I melt the lead in a big ladle on the kitchen stove, then pour it right out side the back door...theres no way Id pour it inside, and carrying a ladle full of melted lead through the rain from the house to the shed seemed like a bad idea even if I set up to pour in there.

I hate the personal set back, but its a small one...and nothing at all like the one the farmers must be feeling...

I used the time to begin antiquing the Green River bag...and even painted a flap on a second bag Im trying to make in the Metis Fashion...actually it looks pretty good and it may nice enough to become the "Red River" set?
