Hey everybody, it has been a while since I posted anything, and I feel terrible about it.
I’ve had some pretty rough weeks lately. I’ve been suffering from some pretty bad headaches and found out that my wisdom teeth need to come out. So, I’ve got that to look forward to. Feeling as bad as I have its kept me from getting much done, both at the farm and in the forge.
Today though, Maria and I got a bit of good news and it helped to boost my mood.
A friend of mine at work is a huge “Nightmare on Elm Street” fan. Why, I don’t know, but he is. So, last year he asked if I could make him a fully operational Freddy Krueger glove. With the blades and all. I make knives pretty regularly, but I had never made the ‘Arnold’s type articulated fingers. It was quite a challenge, but I thought it came out well, and my friend Dan loved it.
Today he sent some photos from the Mad Monster convention in Charlotte, NC. Apparently he got to meet Robert England (the guy who played Freddy). Dan took the glove along and it seems that Mr. England approved of the glove and even signed it!!!! How cool is that? To make a movie reproduction and have the actor approve!!!
So this bit of news helped to boost my mood. Hopefully, once the wisdom teeth get gone and the headaches are over I will have my energy and focus back. We’ve got a ton of work to do at the farm, and a bunch of smithing projects in my head.
Maria and I hope you all have a wonderful week.
All the best,
