    You're a full service company. Cut them down and mill them. You build furniture on site?

    We took a few slabs off on site just for easier loading onto trailer.
    Will make something out of them someday, if I live long enough ;)

    Reckon it was somewhere around 8-10 minutes a slice. Logs were sugar maple 9-1/2' long. Didn't measure dia, but saw has 47"bar. Stihl ripping chain.

    Tweaked my knee early yesterday deadwooding a spruce then drove around shifting equipment from one side of town to the other. Had yet another detour which made getting to my road longer. Just small wore out country roads, some not improved. That just lasted one day, it was a telephone pole installation. I am working right up the road from the farm now but have to go around for 20 minutes to get there.

    Knee still hurt like hell today, I went up three smaller trees for more deadwood a few houses up from mine then went to the job out by my farm and we managed to drop a decent portion of work down on that, hope to finish up tomorrow and be ready to go shopping for the holidays.

    I am just going up to the Army Navy store in Pottstown and get everybody ammo boxes and some grenades. Me and my kid went shopping last night, it was very nice. I stopped and got new snow boots which I love for climbing. Even in the summer though when I get down I take them off pretty ****ing quick. They were great for the rope climbing and little bit of spiking I did today. A decent 100 boot is what I like, just for climbing, don't really like nuttin else. A real tune up in the footing department though I had to go slow cause my knee but we put in our 6 hours of this godforsaken hobby today and it was a beautiful day.

    I had gotten a set of ASolo hikers, man, they hurt like hell. Built tough as nail though. I can do some light rope climbing in those but can't walk in them cause its like walking on bricks. I use 40 dollar Payless hiker jawns on the ground if you wanted to know.

    Getting ready to paint my kid's room with her over the holiday soes happy holidays to you all.

I guess he's gonna take my truck to the 120' white oak over the primaries tomorrow. ***** is gonna learn why I am the man and he's a *****

    Weed tree. Acer pseudoplatanus. We have them here too. It's right up there with the boxelder on the list of weedy undesirables, (in my opinion).

    That wouldn't have been in the Christmas spirit. Much better to make him suffer on the job.

    He didn't even show up to work today and his cell phone is shut off. Either he caught the brown bottle flu or realized he can't back up what he was saying. :drinking:

    So I complained we take to much time off for cold weather so they put me on the golf coarse with a bucket trimming oaks for 3 days day one 15 degrees 35 to 40 mph gusts 20-25 sustained they were trying to break me haha except i was loving the fresh air hell I wasn't even cold. Takes more then that!

    Just you!? That's a lot of trees to do in 3 days.

    For me, this 9 to 2:30-ish crap is taking its toll. I mean it, I don't know how much longer I can keep it up 3 days a week.


    Anyway:

    We dropped the last tree this morning, it looked like a Norway maple, it was big and the logs were ugly so instead of me dealing with them a neighbor is bringing his backhoe down to wreck the place for me and take the wood. Must be desperate, bored or stupid.

    Well he can have fun then, I got paid so far, still have to get the loader off the job but that all can sit til next year for all I am concerned

    I got my ammo boxes and grenades, they seem to be a hit. I can't put mine down for long, I like to warm it on the stove and hold it. Tomorrow I am going to paint it.

    I just got the boxes and bombs and got out of there because I love that store more than the arbo store. They had a nice Tree Surgeon's badge I thought would be nice for MDS.

    Tree surgeon's badge sounds cool. I'm picturing me as like the Dirty Harry of the local tree scene,, lol... forget all that snitching and crying,, I could just skid onto their job site in a big old 70's boat (hubcaps flying), whip out the 44 and start plugging off tree vermin one by one. I figure with a couple tanks of gas and a few boxes of shells, I could have things cleaned up pretty quickly.:laugh:

    They had those big leather DH holsters up there at the A and N. I was going to get a couple badges.


    Just got done painting a grenade, just so happened I had enough cool brown paint in one can to paint one petard and it already feels better. They were sand blasted down to bare cast iron, they are the fragment type so they are really ****ing cool. The bottoms have been ground to omit the threads that would enable a person to fill and seal it. The primers, pin and handle look to be new. No firing pin but no dimple it the primer and the paint is not cracked or worn.
