You know looked at the royal armories place you were talking about on the net, they seem to have a bunch of stuff even seen a picture of a life like
full armored samurai on a horse, one even of an armored elephant, and also a bunch of bucket heads. Even a bunch of ww1 guns the anti aircraft type.
Really does look like a cool place to visit.
Just messengers, not the message. Had to dig deeper with that. In short, really good dream but I don't think I will be getting a sword, but I will
continue to read about them . So no, no photo (not that that was ever, even remotely, a possibility).
Oh no you should definitely get a sword, and when you do Pictures plz.
But I'll tell you what, even though I'm a sword nut I only have like 1 sword in my collection, its nothing all that fancy but its functional, and it
definitely can turn things into mince meat, in fact have not taken it out for a while its in my closet gathering dust. I don't have the $$ for any of
the other ones that I would have wanted to get, and believe me some of them are really pricey.
In fact I at one point wanted to make swords or try my hand at blacksmith. No joke this was back years ago when I was in high school. I think I
watched to many movies and my fascination with swords hit hard, but after that mellowed out I wanted to make some. So I bought all the material
required to make one or at least try my hand at making a knife or something smaller, even bought some books on forging and blacksmithing. So ya, I
got myself an anvil at the scrap yard and a bunch of scrap metal, then I got a little propane forge online, then I bought and foraged a bunch of
forging tongs and hammers, even got whetstones for sharpening and polishing. Then I bought a bunch of firebricks, and was thinking of making a hole
in my parents backyard and making a little forge, but that did not go well with them when they found me digging a hole, and they even have some sort
of rule about noise and smoke in the place were we used to live. Go figure.
So in there back yard they had a little shed were they kept shovels and other things it was big enough to walk into and move around a bit, but it
did not have much space it was long enough to put things in, but narrow. So I cleaned it out then I set up the firebricks around the whole inside
area because, well you know the thing was made of wood, then I set up my little propane forge there, and all the tools. And well one day I set to
trying to heat up a piece of metal I got from the scrap yard, to try my hand at making a knife, was even reading a book I bought on the subject. But
sorry to say my blacksmithing like pretty much everything else in my life did not take off, I remember while I was doing that and trying to heat up
the scrap metal for it to be malleable my little forge sucked, no really it took like forever to even get it anywhere near the right glow, so I
left it there for a few minutes while I took off somewhere.
And when I came back, the propane forge had these two rubber tubes that were hooked to the forge, I did not notice it at first but one of them slipped
and fell. But when I got back after a few minutes I looked behind it and one of the rubber tubes was touching the corner of the forge, and not only
that it was almost melted through. So I turned the thing off with the quickness, who knows what would of happened if I did not catch it. Most
likely some sort of BOOM, last I heard propane gas leaking and fire do not mix well in an small enclosed room. And so ended my little attempt at being
a blacksmith. I think I still have some of the stuff like the tongs, the little forge and the anvil in the garage somewhere.
So ya swords teach you about a bunch of stuff, even about how to now blow yourself up. It was educational at least, and who knows maybe one day I will
try again when I have the space and the righ materials...Or not, who knows.
So yeah, as it turns out, having pondered on it, and ironed out the creases, the dream was almost definitely about penises after all...
You know and this may come as a shocker, but I don't actually like read stuff, most times. Sorry but I did not catch the part were you had a dream
about swords...Or maybe I did and forgot it. But anyways, I do believe those are called morning dreams, and everybody has them....You know Confucius
say man who go to sleep with hand in pocket wake up feeling cocky. Confucius also say other similar things about woman, but that may not be for this
thread...Also I forgot the quote.
