Welcome, Ripster! It's a good place to hang around, under normal circumstances...but; even better, given the current events. We look forward to some pictures of your knives! ::welcome::

Welcome to AAPK. ::welcome:: Hope to see some pics of your collection. I am finding that the virus confinement has allowed me to work on and finish things that have been on the back burner for a long time.

Welcome to AAPK and retirement. Retirement does a lot to increase your collecting habit, believe me!

Howdy, Ripster! ::handshake:: Welcome to AAPK.
You've found a pretty good place to spend some of your "spare time" since you have retired.
