Knowing what a joker Jack is I thought it was going to be a comedy skit with that friendly deputy Don Knots played.  But Instead of laughing I watched with amazement a clip showing in detail how to tie that cool knot.  Now that is a really cool piece of education.

Don you are really something, thanks.

It is a little bit of history where Edzard found I missed a knot on a fence and Jack pounced on it.

Thanks, June.  Its important to know these efforts are appreciated!

Hystory indeed, Don!

BTW, the fence, for I asked help and you sent  the picture, is still unfinished. Maybe one day...

Hi all
when I visit to wholesale nusery and tag trees to pick up later date or deliverly , I make Otoko musubi onto the trees so that no one swich my tag. Once some untie the knot, he can't put it back the way I made knot.
Otoko=man, musubi= knot. other name is tusno musubi. horn knot. end of twin stick out 3/4 inch or so. you figure out name sake of  the knowt  ;D.  if end of knot hangs down sadly we are not calling it Otoko musubi .hehehe.

Otoko musubi is basic knot. Once you master otoko musubi , then you can make many other decorative knot you see in Japanese garden books.
