    There is one word that comes to mind:

    ENVY

    Ah well, give me a few years and I'll see what I can do.

    There are rulings that have come down "from on high" at my house as well. Luckily I learned one lesson very well..."Yes ma'am" works. She granted me a reprieve and I was allowed to build a bench for tying AND reloading into the house. It just isn't allowed to be seen directly when anyone enters the room.

    Those flies are beautiful. Never thought of displaying any.

    I did notice that your fly tying area is very close to the door..............there isn't a family message in there ................... is there?

    Just kidding........................

    Everything you pictures is fantastic. You have to be loving the natural light you get from that window next to the desk.
    Did you make or purchase the frame for the flies? I have a few special flies that deserve being shown like you did for Lauries sweet ties.

    What I want to see is close ups of what looks to be two cranefly flies in your avatar.

    I spent an evening knotting up some pt fibers and need to put them to good use. You have me headed in the right direction.

    Not an original line - none of mine ever are.... The words are used by John Mortimer's immortal and heroic figure, Rumpole of the Bailey, in reference to his long-suffering wife. Always used with great affection.
