    Man!,,, the rain we are getting is crazy, gonna have to call it a day on Thursday, not worth it.
    We have been working in the rain since the start of the year it seems. I know we need it, but it is a lot at a time,
    damn shallow rooted trees in SoCal are gonna go down, I hate emergency work, especially when the guys have been at it all day,
    It was a beautiful day!
    Jeff :cool:

    Ran skidder. Pretty uneventful. Had 3 moose trying to eat trees I was hauling away and I got high centered on a tall stump, somehow had all 4 tires off the ground. Took some fighting with the grapple to push it off.
    Feller Buncher broke through the ice and dropped into the creek (water is maybe 2ft deep).

    So this is either quite the oxymoron or we have completely different views/definitions of a beautiful day. Way to be positive man!

    Talking bout dat dawg, getting all violent, got me feeling low. Plus the seasonal switch to cretin of the snow, dweller of the darkness whose preferred habitat is on the sofa by woodstove watching the weather channel or fussing with the heater in the truck. And I hate to be jostled to hard to early.

    Which is why I layed sleepin til 9. That made me feel worse but I was afraid of the cold.

    But it turned out warm enough to wash the truck and clean the garage. There is a bunny in there. And I have the intake and timing belt off of my old Yota. I was going to push it out and hose the 300k worth of oil of the engine now that I have it apart. Its been soaking for a week. But I only got to the salt spreader and the truck which I washed at the car wash.

    I wasn't sure if I would be up at that farm. I have to drain all the water from the one house but don't know how nor am going from the outer basement all the way in and up to the second floor. I got the first floor and can drain the heater but won't until I figure out the second. Its HELL in that basement, scary, dark, dank, dirty HELL and I am afraid of **** like that.

    I drove my hitch into one of the troughs and broke it and lied about and next time it comes up I will joke about how I lied about it and about my language in front of the young girls.

    I am looking for steel troughs which I can heat with my barrel stove. Going to get set up splitting with it after I spray the area down with wood chips. I have a bunch of concrete fence posts I want to build a stand to put the trough ontop of the stove.

    The really bad part of watering these horses is there is only ONE freaking hose! I mean that's all you can get at one time, a garden hose worth. It takes forever. One horse = 30 gal a day.

    It was a nice axe but it was just an axe. I could go out anywhere and find a stray axe just like that. I didn't want to be rude and say that to him, he seemed quite enthralled.

    I'm crying bullshit on nature right now. Single digits Monday and in the 50's today. I got mud ******* deep to a seven foot tall Indian on my job right now. Ripped out the beaver damn and water has gone down by four feet in two days but it's still high and we got two inches of rain forecast for tomorrow. Looks to be a maintainence and training day in the shop.
    I did eat my lunch outside so it was a beautiful day:dancing:

    Yeah, but these last 2 to 3 weeks have been able to put a lot of drops in the bucket.

    Just my excitement. Thought I would share it. I have a bazillion things that are more important than an old axe. What a great distraction to me. KIMG0145.JPG

    No I am not a ISA cert. This is my boss man's truck in my driveway. I sure could get it with my 12 or so years of climbing. I don't think it would matter for my situation. Thanks for asking.

    you are welcome,
    but you did post that pic so you were promoting (yourself) or your company having a cert.arb,
    seems deceptive,
    btw, I climbed for 28 years, hang in there,,

    Estimate is done by an ISA Cert Arb, no guarantee that the guy doing the work has a clue. Not a slight on you, you may get a better deal and leave for somewhere else tomorrow.

    You really don't know. Right. All is good I don't have to defend myself. I make a good living. I can sleep at night(because I do the right things), and get calls everyday.
