WHO'S GOT THE LINKS?

Here at Uncle mac's we are privileged to know many creative and talented people. Artists, crafters, authors, poets, inspired gardeners all with positively magical works and wisdom to share. We are proud to offer these links so that others may explore some small portion of their worlds.

And of course, we've include a few lynx as well, because that is what we do. Enjoy, and when there are shops involved, please visit and take a look around.







Christmas is right around the corner and the Etsy store, Full of Knots, is even closer than that. Check out these colorful fun creations and contact the proprietor, the enigmatic Heather Simon about custom orders, there is still time! Whimsy and skill in equal measure are found in every "Full of Knots creation!"





BRRRR!

Fresh from the metaphorical pen of Raymond Kukkee comes an essay on subjects most of us would rather avoid. Subjects like the pure irritating immobilization that a harsh winter inflicts upon us. Like the additional irritation a sluggish and disinterested Public Works team can add to the mix.




JIM DANDY TO THE RESCUE!


While you are at it check out the rest of the insights at Raymond's popular Incoming BYTES, always thought provoking and entertaining. Bookmark it, perhaps even join!




 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
A HEEP OF NEAT!
 
Christmas time is coming and we all have to wonder what it is that we intend to stuff all those stockings with. Certainly feet are not appropriate. Well, as it turns out our buddy Alexandra Heep, she of "A Heep of Everything" and "A Heep of NASCAR" blogging fame also has a shop. And this little shop? Does it answer many of your shopping questions? I leave that to you, just go and visit "A Heep of Treasures", take a look around, like and share it, and then purchase a heepin' helpin' of unique coolness!
 
 
Hey we even have a few items for sale here at the Shed! Can you say, "Woot!"? Well that was certainly an admirable attempt, best work on it, though.
 
 
GOTTA HOOK 'EM TO COOK 'EM!
 
First, for the fisherman in your life, "Silver Bullet" spinners, the ne plus ultra of spinning baits. $8.95 for 3, $2.50 shipping. To order simply leave your e-mail address in "comments" with the message: "Send me the spinners!"
 
 
 
 
 
REEL 'EM IN, LADIES!
 
Did we forget the ladies? Not likely, at this blog where they are seldom out of our lecherous thoughts. No way! Stuff that stocking with "Mancatcher Ear Rings" the lobe - dangling corollary to Silver Bullet spinners. A mere $7.95 for the pair, $2.50 postage, simply leave your e-mail address and the message, "I gotta have the ear rings!" in "comments!"
 
Note: you will need to improvise something to attach them to your lobe, or whatever you intend to suspend them from.







Well, time to answer the burning question: "Who's got the Lynx?"

We do, of course.

From the tiniest of Lynx   


WHO'S CUTER THAN ME?

To a fine big fat fellow...


A REALLY BIG CANADIAN LYNX WILL APPROACH 40 LBS!

Lynx have absurdly large paws...


CALL ME "BIGFOOT"




These act as snow shoes and aid them on many a hare-raising hunt!


HARES ARE A CANADIAN LYNX'S FAVORITE DINNER

When they can catch them. Sometimes the bunny puts the slip on the wiliest of Lynx. Like this lucky escape artist.

But generally its, "Bunnies! its whats for dinner!"

Sometimes they chase each other!

Bobcats - which are lynx - sometimes chase their Mommy's tails.

Both bobcats and lynx can and do make amazing pets for the right people, in the right location. Turn your sound up for this.

And that should be more than enough Lynx for one post!


EXCEPT FOR THESE TWO



COOL, NO?

We have another shop for you, courtesy of Marie Anne St. Jean. A yarn spinnin' woman she wants to show you what she's spun lately. You'll want to take a peek at "The Crooked Yarn" where special orders not only don't upset us, they're a way of life!






KABOOMSKI!

Weather has been brutal in the Northeast and winter isn't even here yet. From way across the country, Cheyenne, Wyoming in fact, comes author Clair Schwan with some tips on dealing with difficult weather. You really need to bookmark his potentially life saving blog, "Self reliance Works" it is well worth keeping up with. Want to make poultry keeping a bit easier? Check out the automatic watering system. Ever really want to start a fire with a bow and string and fireboard? Here is where you will learn how.

See what I mean?


We have another shop! We have Lynn Parets own original artwork, securely sequestered in the vaults of her Etsy store. Visit her at "Lynn's Creations" and see what you can uncover!

We have an original Lynn here at the shed, a custom ordered Vida Guerra. We could not be happier!

What great gifts!










GLORY'S SHORT STORIES



We had a yarn spinner earlier but here is a yarn spinner of a different stripe. Meet Glory Lennon, author of the award winning gardening blog "Glory's Garden"  and of the fun serial novel, "Violets in Bloom." You should check both out, and bookmark them!

Glory has also just finished her latest novella, "Where your Treasure Lies" and that is a must read as well. (knowing Glory's restless typing fingers she'll be starting a new one, shortly)

Let us not overlook "An Ever Fixed Mark" which is tough to do anyway, it being ever fixed and all.

But what I REALLY want to direct you to, today, is "Glory's Short Stories". Stop by, enjoy a quick read and leave a friendly comment or two. You'll be glad you did!




And that would seem to be about that for this episode of "Who's got the Links". We had them, and now you've got them too. Enjoy!

Hey Mac, sure glad you're enjoying our efforts at Self Reliance Works. We find it to be true, self-reliance really does work well for creating a happy and satisfying life.

Thanks for promoting our efforts. We are honored to have "the works" featured at "the shed."
