Wanted to mention i appreciate the Photo Gallery additions - they sometimes go unmentioned but it's a nice way to visit around without burning gas :)
Now to pockets: They say we are what's in our pockets. Once in a play in country school, my character was supposed to pull a frog from his pocket so i also i took a dare to haul out a roll of toilet paper - got rave reviews :) Well i've changed some but my pockets haven't. Think about yours right now. Mine carry a wallet, red rag, 3 rings of keys (even thouth i hate to lock stuff), 2 pens and a pencil, assorted cards and receipts, smokes & lighter, some change, a Leatherman AND Stanley knife, assorted nails & screws, 3 combination wrenches (7/16", 1/2" & 9/16") 10-ft steel tape & a tire-filler valve for the air compressor. Does that say anything? What's in yours? :)

Have you noticed that the pockets are always the first thing to wear out on a pair of jeans? Mine always have--the worst is the one where I carry my slip joint pliers for fixing fence. Oh well...

Just the word pockets reminded me of my Dad, when we were growing up.
He would always carry a Zippo lighter, one of the huge ones and about $10.00 in change, all in the same pocket. When he would walk around, it would sound like he was wearing spurs. It got real loud when he would run around.
I will never forget that sound as long as I live, we still tease him about it to this day.

Billfold, pocket comb,(Don't know why, just a 50 year habit) and keys. Carried a Swiss Amy Knife for 25 years and just recently lost it. Can't find a replacement, every place I look just has the Leatherman or knock offs. Don't care too much for them.

Check on Ebay: my husband lost an old Kay-bar pocket knife he loved; his brother bought him a brand new one to replace it, but it wasn't made like the old one, wouldn't hold an edge when he sharpened it. But I found loads of really old ones on Ebay. I bought him two so he'd have a spare, and he's happy as a lark.

I have some spotted on e-Bay. There is an incredible assortment. Prefer to buy local but beginning to think that's not going work. Gonna look at one more place in KC then make a bid.

Heh, heh, heh...

Saw something somewhere about 10 reasons why it was safe to leave yer keys in a farm truck.

One was that nobody but the owner could start the durn thing anyway. Another was "It's hard to steal a truck when everybody in the neighborhood is waving at ya.."

At work, I carry a ring of keys, a Schrade Old Timer pocketknife, a little change, my wallet, a notebook (my portable memory) and a pen.

At home, I carry a Gerber folding knife clipped to the inside of my waistband. I like to travel light...

My dad was sorta a survival nut - he thought i not only had to be good enough to feed our own but also top quickly train any other family heads that might wander thru. His idea of a wintertime survival kit was a 22, hatchet, a wool blanket and waterproof matches. So it really don't take much - oh i'd add a case of toilet paper now :)
