I'm a man of filet mignon taste and a hamburger budget. I like a few fine things in my other wise basic life. I like a good pocket knife. Gotta carry one or else I feel something is missing. It's amazing how many uses I find for a knife in a given day. I just ordered a Ken Onion Chive black on black which was voted the knife of the year. I like a good hat and the one I'm sporting is a Borsalino. I have two actually! One I bought many years ago in a store of 50,000 hats in Nashville, TN. It was the only hat in the store that would fit my big head and of course it was the most expensive in the store. It is being cleaned and blocked. Gotta love that hat that has kept my nogin protected and dry thru wood firings and snow storms. My latest I purchased in Sienna, Italy and it is rather a mafia don kinda hat.
I like real Kentucky bourbon and Woodford- Reserve is what I treat myself to when I'm feeling flush. I have a whiskey bottle in the Brown Foreman Collection down there in Louisville pronounced Low a ville or some such thing.
Here is a shout out to Shane Norrie for being on the winners podium at the Toronto Outdoor Exhibition. A hard show to get into and even harder to end up with the brass ring. Congrats, Shane! Fight big fighter, fight!!!
