Don’t you hate it when life gets in the way

Life happens. Most of the time it is a good thing, but sometimes it can interfere with other things we want to do.

That’s what is happening to me right now. Got lots of “Knife Things” I want to be doing, but priorities, well they take priority- things like WORK, family, kid’s sporting events, situations, etc., can and do cause us to need to focus on them.

The end result of this is setting fun projects aside until the time is right- such is the situation for iKnife Magazine- one of my Knife Things I wanted to have rolled out by now.

So, for you who are waiting on me to launch iKM- I’ve had to set it aside for the time being. I hope I can pick it back up in the next few months. For now though, I’d like to invite you to visit iKnife Collector for good knife conversation and topics.

I expect to resume posting here at CNJ as often as I can, but for the same reasons, might not be able to post here with the same frequency I have over the last year.

Please feel free to stick your head in over at iKnifeCollector. I’ll probably be there when you do. If not, then don’t hesitate to drop me a note to let me know you stopped by.

Life things can bump knife things

Sometimes when we want to play knives life things can get in the way.

Folks ask me all the time- “Scott, is your real job knife related?” Most of you here know it is not. I’m an auctioneer and I struggle, just like you, with trying to balance the many areas of life.

You know what I mean- work or personal things take priority over play things. These other things can bump you from going to that knife show even though you had it in your calendar for months or from traveling to meet a guy with that knife you are interested in- those kind of things.

Well for me these life things also bump me from posting here at CNJ or playing knives with my friends at iKC. I don’t want to sound like I’m complaining, but this week it’s work related “things” that are taking away my play time.

Traveled to Austin, Texas on Saturday and got back at mid-night Sunday. Yesterday and today- just slammed. In the morn, I leave at 4:00 AM to drive to two meetings and then on to Memphis, TN for two auctions.

Work is a good thing. Yes, we all have to make hay while the sun is shinning, but man, don’t you hate it when you’d really rather play knives- I know I do.
