You is a Californian, right?

Or is this Dayton weirdness?

Ok, Kahn, even I am a little weirded out by that combo...

This sounds like a macabre version of rock paper scissors. Chicken blood rusts machete, machete jams bayonet, bayonette gunpowder sours chicken blood...

Ah, its great to arrive at a point in life where you are comfortable in your own skin. It is a kind of elixir to realize that you can pretty much do whatever you want, when your want, on your own turf.

Hmmmm...poultry blood, a jungle tool and a war relic.
A collector perhaps for the machete and bayonet. I have a few things like this, but they are replicas of medieval instruments of war.
The chicken blood has me stumped - critter repellent for the garden?

The machete is a garden tool I bought for exSO

The bayonet belonged to exDH (it's from WW1) - I should find him and ask if he wants it back

When I unwrap a chicken I pour the blood into a bowl for the cat
