Short version, Climbed a tree to see what was in a huge nest.  Got attacked 7 stitches in a eyelid, 5 puncture wounds to the head by a Goshawk.   Was blessed not to lose the eye.  Been thirty five years since I quit peaking in nests.

Worked 45 years as a flour miller; with hot summers and sweat, the dust would turn to dough.

I went to a Catholic grade school and there were four Jerrys, so each of us acquired another name.
Mine went on my High School diploma (my Mom never did approve)

I like to whittle a one piece of wood ball in a cage, chain links, pliers, jack knife. Haven't done any in quite a while maybe this summer.

we used a few  terms in the military  when we were in hot areas.
one that our RSM used was that" We were now in the land of the shootback targets", another when it was time to pack up move out- "to piss on the fire and call the dogs"
but the one that always stuck with me, and incidentally also became the name of the best horse i ever owned- she was fast, whip smart and moved like a cat on a hot tin roof, was FUJIMO- which meant " F*** U Jack, I'm Movin Out".
Unlike me of course- thats why i needed a hoss!
it was a turn of phrase we used when it was time to hi-tail it, and i found myself still using the phrase from time to time.
The handle is a good  reminder of the best period of my life!

I was a knifemaker and it seemed appropriate. After I spent more time on the internet and saw the work of some of the other makers, I realized how presumptuous it was, but by then it sort of stuck.

When stationed in >NC, I picked up dead coons on the base roads to skin.  Military call became roadkill, so i just used it.  Semper Fi

I have taught the treestand safety portion of our bowhunter ed class for more than 20 years. One of our students brought his young son (5-6 years old) to class with him, we ran into each other a couple weeks after the class and his son said "look dad it's the Fallguy".

Bowhunting is my passion, so at the spur of the moment I came up with imbowhunt10. The number 10 has no significance other than the sound. I have always wished I could change it, having put a little more thought into it since then.
