It's time for a tune up

 

Sharpening season


This is the time of year when I like to make a point of sharpening my blades (before "peak season" hits). Honest Abe once said, “Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.” In other words, keeping your tools ready for action is more than half the battle. Consider this your friendly reminder to SHARPEN THOSE BLADES!!
