A shilling isn't just five pence

Yup, 'tis the final day of voting in the Milbloggies, so what's to do but gently urge you

*thumb testing edge of Kabar*

to trundle over to the Master Voting Menu and vote for your favorites.

Your favorites in category this year, by the way, are -

Best US Military Veteran  -- us (yeah, I know that Matty Blackfive hasn't caved yet, just go vote, okay?)

Best US Military Supporter -- Boston Maggie, of course (even if she is a sailor doxie)

Best US Reporter -- Susan Katz Keating,  because she's a huge Huey fan (as in, her fan-ness is huge. She's not. In fact, she's even more of a hobbit than HF6)

Everybody else is up for grabs.

Hey, I ain't just shilling for shilling's sake -- I do have *some* pride.

And when I remember where I left it, I'll take a picture of it and prove it...

Can you take a picture of your own zipper?  I didn't think you could extend your arms far enough, Bill.

 
That's what the Hubble is for.  I'll just crank it around Earthwards ....
 
You are right UnkaBill, A shilling is Twelve P's.
 
 Where'd you get a Kabar? I know you didn't get it off a dead Marine as Marines are too mean and ugly to die.
 
Qm, anybody can buy one on the open market.  Oh, wait, you are making a remark with social emotional content! Must retire and think some more!

To all others: I was just attempting a silly lame autistic joke.

All that aside, I have read that one can acquire a perfectly good Ka-Bar these days, easily the equal of any issued to or bought by U.S. Marines in the Second World War, for much less than what those Cold Steel people charge.

I do admit to lusting after Cold Steel's reproduction of the USN Pattern of 1917 Naval Cutlass. That would make a badass machete for the back yard, here in Flarduh.
