This 1800 Steel Cold Handle or Cowboy Skillet is one of my favorite items. I have had it for years. The fork belong to my Great Grandmother DeHaven. I don't remember her because she had died right after I was born. My Mom gave me this fork alone with her favorite stores when she had lived with her as a young girl.
I lost an eating utensil in the leaves next to the fire on our last hike. I would have been devastated if It would have been my fork so I added bright reflective tape and a loop of 550 cord to it. Just about every antique I own I use and that's what makes them so special.
For those of you who enjoy the old Western movies where a Cowboy is sitting around a campfire cooking up something, these skillets rock and it also doubles as a plate. I'm longing for the day when I find a few friends interested in camping on Dual Sports. I'll bring back the Old Days on my Iron Horse.
I was digging through boxes from the old house and came across Princess's roller skates. Too small for me, but I know another little girl who would love to have them.
My leg is healing up very well. I went to the doctor last week and she said I was making bone and to keep up what ever I was doing. I was on crutches for two weeks and have been walking on the boot. I have one more week on the boot then I start using a lace up brace and regular shoes. It's actually been a cake walk.
I would love to do a 2 or 3 day camping trip this spring some where in your great state of NJ.
Scope out a place to ride and I'm in! The only place I've been in up state NY in Dexter my brother and I went Salmon Slamming in 1988 and caught a wheel barrel full salmon.

I also hate intolerance. My whole family is like that too. Our motto is live and let live. Yep, live and let live. If some SOB has a problem with that we take him out and shoot him. It has worked for us.
