Its about that time of year again, time to start looking for limbs on any thick barked deciduous trees to make some more slip bark whistles out of. They're great projects for giving to the neighbours kids (if the neighbours are a block or three away) or the grandkids/nephews/nieces right before you send them home.
A simple and fast project but a lot of fun nevertheless. This was one of my first introductions to "carving" (or whittling more accurately I suppose) when someone stopped by the Ranch when I was a kid and made me one. I still enjoy them because they take less than 5 minutes to make and are enjoyed by all the youngsters at heart.
Loml just noted: Its about that time of year again, time to start looking for limbs on trees to beat your boyfriend with after he gives whistles to children who live nearby.
So I suggest you all be careful out there, not everyone is a fan.
