    Aldergirl, I did not know you and Knifegill were associated.

    I picked up my sickle at a local historical water mill. Not had much use for it, as I moved into my apartment in the dead of winter and only recently has there been anything grassy. Might give it a go this weekend if it'll stop raining. A scythe probably wouldn't even fit in my "yard".

      They're not just associated. They're married and in the process of producing a little Knifegirl or Aldergill.

        We got ours two weeks ago from a family member. It's all rusted, but I managed to put an edge on it, so I was able to see how it worked. I'm actually amazed I got an edge on it--I didn't think I had the skill! I'm thinking I'll dunk the metal in some coca-cola to eat the rest of the rust off. That's what coke's good for, right? ... But then I'd have to support coke by buying some. Decisions, decisions...

        Aldergill or Knifegirl--LOVE IT! Yep, our little one is due mid September. Knifegill really needs to start working on a cage for it. We were both hyper and stubborn when little, and he was highly destructive, too. We're quite worried about what type of child we'll produce, LOL... I think Knifegill is still hoping I'll pop out a My Little Pony instead of a child...

          By the way, Knifegill's avatar is an upside down view of our baby. The utrasound picture just looked so creepy he had to have it as his avatar .

            I thought that it was a distorted picture of bin laden meant to look like the face on mars...
            "Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."

              Lol, no, that's our baby. Here's the picture bigger:



              And, here it is right-side up:


              That one looks creepy no matter the orientation, so here's one that's slightly nicer:


              And, a good ol' side view, just for fun and to show we really aren't creating a My Little Pony... or a monster, hopefully!

                      Our lives as we now know them will be over, of that I am pretty certain. There's a reason that, even though we want sheep and chickens, we're not getting them now. We won't know how much our lives will change once that baby comes out, and we want to make sure we have time to adjust without having to worry about neglecting animals in our sleep deprivation!

                      We'll worry about cute, fuzzy, yummy animals once we get this whole parent thing "under control"... if there is such a thing!

                        Goodness. Well, don't forget to post pictures so my other half can see.

                        As for the rust, just how bad is it?

                          Congrats on the baby, you two!!!

                          Life is no where near over, it's just starting, and it will be awesome. Just think, you have a little one to teach and mold! Make sure you have a bunch more (I am really serious!)!

                          Happiness is truly in our children! I have four of my own (20, 19, 6, 4), I like my kids in sets of two (Irish twins!).

                            The rust isn't too bad. It's a thin, consistent layer across the whole blade, but it hasn't really hurt the integrity of the blade, and I was easily able to work my way through the rust by just sharpening it with a whetstone.

                            Thanks! We are really excited about having kids. After raising and loving everyone else's kids while working in preschool, I am really looking forward to having my own child and all the memories we'll make, times we'll share, and fun we'll have. We definitely want to have at least one more after this one, and may have more if finances and things work out. Both Knifegill and I were hyper, stubborn kids, and we do worry about having autistic kids, since both of us seem to be on the asperger's spectrum. So, we won't know until after we have them whether or not our kids will require more love and resources than expected. We want to make sure we can provide our kids with the time, love and nutrition they need!

                                If it's black rust, it'll be fine. That's not "active" so isn't currently doing any harm. If it's red or orange, however, buff that off.

                                Metalglo is my favorite polishing compound. Note, though, if you want to remove the patina (black rust), it's going to be tedious to get any pitting worked out.
