    Made this rocking horse when my son was small. I made another just like it, for our grandson's 2nd birthday. The only difference was that I put an extra board between the rockers with his name on it. On the bottom side of the board, I engraved "from Papa". I just learned that our Daughter in law later sold it at a yard sale. I had also made him a little pulpit because he had gotten into pretending to "preach" and she sold that too. She has consistently restricted our access to our grandson for years and on the few times he got to stay with us, he never wanted to go back home.. But now that she is divorcing our son, she wants us to keep the children for free while she works. On top of that, she told my wife she has to meet her at her place to pick them up.. We live out in the country so my Wife has to drive a total of 60 miles every day to pick them up and bring them back. That's going to be expensive, but at least we are getting to see our grandchildren now. I won't get into the whole mess right now, but would appreciate your prayers.

    Here's the two coins. Working on one at a time and it's coned about as far as I can get it on the sizing mandrel so I will finish it on the hydraulic press at the shop on Friday. The pure silver is much harder than I expected. Had to do a lot of hammering to get it to this stage.

    I checked that out.... U.S. Code is 18 U.S.C. §331 reads: "Whoever fraudulently alters, defaces, mutilates, impairs, diminishes, falsifies, scales or lightens any of the coins coined at the mints of the United States, or any foreign coins which are by law made current or are in actual use or circulation as money within the United States; or whoever fraudulently possesses, passes, utters, publishes, or sells, or attempts to pass, utter, publish, or sell, or brings into the United States, any such coin, knowing the same to be altered, defaced, mutilated, impaired, diminished, falsified, scaled or lightened - shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both. [Emphasis added.]" Still sounds like something you can't do, right? This paragraph from the U.S. Mint website should clear this up:   Basically, "fraudulent intent" is the key here. The altered coin can only be used like a novelty. It is no longer legal tender after being altered. But a 1 oz .999 Silver dollar is not really a "dollar" anyway because the silver content alone is worth around $20

  10. Heads or Tails?

    This is a "poll" but I don't know the proper way to do one. I just punched a 1/2" plug out of these two "Silver Eagles" and am ready to start forming them into rings. If you had one made, would you prefer the "United States of America 1 Oz Fine Silver......" on the outside, or "Liberty, In God We Trust", and your birth year? All words should be visible, but some will be on the "inside" of the ring. These two are for Christmas gifts and I am NOT trying to sell anything to any of y'all. Just would like some opinions. (sorry for the bad cellphone pics) Thanks

  12. All Preachers Should Have A Conceal Weapon Permit

    Invicta, Without the one guy with the handgun putting a stop to it, the churchfolk were like fish in a barrel. Good for him. God even gave PREY animals something to defend themselves with, but you think people should not have the same?. Horns make nice weapons...observe........... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dx2-WiPXboI

    I never got that from the passage. I always thought she was giving her all in faith; a cheerful giver, holding nothing back, truly trusting God to meet her needs, "worshipping in spirit and in truth". She had very little to give, but hers was MORE, because she gave all she had, the Bible says..

    Criminals will get guns. They don't bother with background checks, licenses, gun-free zones or laws. Ungodly "liberal" politicians aren't concerned with public safety from guns either: guns stand in the way of their power.
