Believe strongly that a dull knife or edge is much more dangerous than a sharp edge. Owner of a small but fun collection of righteous knives and bayonets. Never mow my lawn with dull blades, or when the grass is wet!
Father of 2 wonderful, beautiful young women. Eldest lives in Chicago where I first discovered "Sharpening by Dave," at the Chicago Farmers' Market.
Graduated from Michigan State University with a degree in advertising (entered as a music education major with a band scholarship).
Helped introduce the McDonald's Happy Meal to the world...it was invented at Bernstein, Rein & Boasberg advertising, circa 1980, right here in Kansas City, MO.
Accomplished trumpet player until I lost my scholarship, at which time I hung up my brass.
Now focus on Native American Flute, Guitar, and Conga Drums/hand percussion.
Married to my one and only, since 1982.
Thinking of starting a small business crafting wooden stands for Native Flutes.
Semi-Retired; work at Golf Galaxy in suburb of Kansas City ~ Kansas side. Started playing golf at age 7 years. Still suck at the game.
Cookie Monster & dedicated "Choco-holic."
In command of the Starship, but only when I can grab the TV remote from youngest daughter!
Love Bacon and a 'farm breakfast' whenever I can get it...breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Biscuits and spicy sausage gravy remains an artform, in my mind!
Wishing you Blessings, Peace, and an edge that remains forever Sharp 'n Safe!
