splicing wire

No. Topic drift would be if someone had suggested that only a Dem/Rep supporter would/wouldn''t use spliced halyards, and that thwe whole country was going to hell as a result. Or if Brenda had appeared to advise that Jesus should judge what halyards are best and that "calamityjane" should hasten from the chandler''s and into a church to ask his opinion, that would be drift.

As these boards go, this is pretty well on-topic!

By the way. A drift is also a blacksmith''s tool I use a fair amount. It is also the name of the steel wedge used to split slate along its planes in a quarry.

Now we are drifting.

splicing wire


When I worked as a cowboy in Wyoming, I once stayed in an old boarding house that "Calamity Jane" had stayed in.The old timers still told tales about how tough she was,and how she liked a good "chaw" of tobacco.She had probably seen a blacksmith''s "drift" before, but I can''t say that I have.

It''s hard for me to imagine Jesus judging halyards though.I think of him as judging men.

As for Brenda and others,I believe "judge not,so that ye may not be judged."

Good luck with handling the "drift."

Fair winds!
