Jerry’s Knives in Frozen Florida

Last month we went to the Florida panhandle to hang out with our first grandchild and his two baby sisters. And their folks, of course. Why not celebrate Christmas more than once a year?

We shouldn’t have been surprised the weather was colder there than back home in Oregon. Two years ago we stayed in the camper and crawled out of the sack to find ice in the birdbath. Next time we’d best go in the spring.

Congregating around three vets and their service dogs our last day there, we shivered on the sandy beach, the only significant time we spent outside the entire week. I’m not complaining. These guys and their canine friends were great.

There’s a lot of good stuff to say about Florida. For instance, all three vets own a Jerry Davis knife, which makes us extremely proud.

One thing we enjoy when camping with our grandchildren is coaching them in their archery skills. They love spending time with Grandpa Jerry and Grandma Kathy thinking up competitive games with the targets. We almost missed the opportunity last summer as the weeks flew by and we hadn’t had our family camping trip of 2017, but thankfully we pulled it off.

It’s hard to imagine anything more satisfying than sharing the great outdoors with our young ones.

Note to self: Include knife handling skills on our next trip. It might be time to sculpt the next generation of knife makers!
