well, when its real cold, hope not shortly, but long... not shorts lj's... but full length! lol ;)
when I get outta this 03 tub they're coming on. lol
mornin....sun shining thru this bathroom window. don't know temp but walls upstairs were cold. ain't summer that's for sure. waiting for it to warm up then out to the woodpile for more splitting. more wood out there than I thought. going to take a bit to get in shape. this summer was a killer....in more ways than i. quite a few didn't make it. including almost me. lol
be good and go slow. we don't need anymore heart attacks for awhile.
Brett....asthma is a stomach condition. when we had naturopath ic and good probiotics snd colhomeopathy it was routinely cured by cleaning and correcting the gut and intestines and colon. digestive enzymes...charcoal...and good probiotics.....and colosan from John tagger at thefamilyhealthnews.com.

Good morning guys :drinkingcoffee:.
59 out now and heading to 70 with blue skies and sun. What's funny is the app on my phone says it's 78 right now :laugh:.
While I like the blue skies I won't be able to burn the brush today with it being so clear as easily. I'll have to get a good hot fire going with dry wood. The storm blew the covers off my bonfire wood stacks and even blew about half of one over, hopefully it will light right up for me, little kerosene does a lot for getting a fire going :blob2:.
Hoping to get a lot of the brush burned up, and to get the rest of the locust that had the hanging cherry limb over/on it. The locust tree has stress cracks going up to about as high as I can reach so theres a darn good chance of getting pinched and I'm not wanting my saw pinched 5' off the ground :eek:.
I'm a little sore in my shoulders from the work yesterday, running the pole saw it doesn't take long when your out of shape. My knee also got banged up a bit when I dropped a 2-3" branch about 6' long and it bounced up and hit right next to my knee cap :dumb:, but if that's the only injury I'm quite pleased :yes:.
Hope you guys have a good weekend.
Great job brother. keep on keeping on.

Thanks my friend.
Sun is shining beautifully here as well, I'm heading out in it in a few myself, I need it living here in Michigan :yes:.
Think about this, people with ankylosing spondylitis who have stomach issues such as IBS, Crohn's won't test positive for the indicators, interesting isn't it.
You're right we don't need any heart attacks, so you take it easy out there :).

Howdy. Well, as long as I take my RLS pill after dinner, I have a good night's sleep and I often get up before dawn. That's unusual for me!
I'll take that any day.

So I've had my morning coffee and Bible, and now it's off to work. New renter moving in and I have much to do, but this afternoon/evening we have 2 parties to attend. Should be a good day!
unc.....rls is from a lack of minerals. mostly potassium, calcium, and magnesium.....tonic water which has quinine in it works too. farmers out in Ohio used to get the quinine over the counter. fda stopped it cuz it worked and was competition against the drugs. fda and drug cos hand in hand.

Great job brother. keep on keeping on.
Thanks.
Here's a black locust leaner from the storm. It was threatening to fall where I store my trailers so I decided to help it out under my terms rather than wait for it to fall on it's terms. I felt as though it was threatening me, must remove all threats :cool:.
It went right where I wanted :happy:.
I'll brush it out today and then cut it into 8'ers for firewood. I don't need or want any more green wood right now so I'm trying to set as much of the green stuff aside. If I would have finished my splitting I could have put it right there, only about 8hrs to get to get that done, pretty much how it goes always shuffling the new wood with the old(but that's a good problem to have :)).

Good evening Tony.
You gotta know how to work with what you have.
If God gives you lemons, you clean carbs right :laugh:.
Glad your enjoying milling again. Is the sycamore pretty easy to mill.
Sleep well.
Good morning Brett, the insides of that growth is gnarly IIRC. From what little I've read the slabs were air dried to 25% then kiln dried below 10% during which twist and so on presented.:drinkingcoffee: Most of the stuff in sight from the road draws interest. I expect these will also.
Sycamore is considered a soft wood, the end cutting makes more stringy fuzz than chips which still pitched out 7-8' the other side.:drinkingcoffee:
Truck got returned yesterday, wasn't warned about air leak in a wheel, after clearing up an issue. Log is halved, one more slice & the remaining chunk will get rolled over the side. Won't drag it off the end, over the ramp. Very cool morning:yes:
Enjoy safely Ya'll

Nice job Brett. Just keep telling yourself slow down and safe. Even harder with the kids around.

Morning people!Moon sure isn't hiding this morning! Someone mentioned long johns-is 41 anyone's threshold?Not for me, but I did turn the heat up.Have a great weekend!
not 41 for me. but we always wore them with jeans when snow skiing at around 22 - 24f ish... jeans didn't quite cut it, but we was 'po-boise' for local ski areas. oodles of them! jeans always got wet, the L. J.s made the dif... we wouldn't think of going skiing w/o them. even for Spring skiing...

Mornin Leeroy. 41* is close for long johns but hopefully won't need them anytime soon. Looks like we'll be back in the low 80's next week. Was hoping to see the harvest moon but to cloudy here. :drinkingcoffee:
wish we would see low 80's next week! 97f today, heavy rains mid week next... I am beginning to think fall is only going to visit up N this year... 2 more weeks and it will be October... L Js? heck, no! shorts... and T's. :cool:

That is a beautiful scooter! I'd ride that in a heartbeat.
hi Sty57- me, too. and I plan to, and often! I got a big smile out of fussing with it yesterday. I was a big winner! :numberone:

you see, the owner has no documentation. books on it, or how to's etc. an original, bit beat up, Owner's Manual on ebay is around $100. I found a year model specific repro OM for $10.00. so ordered that at 'full retail!' lol. free shipping included! the 50 page OM for the bike. more or less a mini workshop manual, too. lots of tech in ot, how tos, etc. but that is not the winning deal. just a good deal. also noticed several listings for a Hanynes Triumph workshop manual covering the 1979 model, too. most listings were around $30 and shipping. then, more by chance than not, I saw one at 15. decided to open it up. and it also had a Make Offer. :D so what the heck. the prompt said try 11.38 + shpg. I offered 5 and free shipping. next day counter came in: 10 and free shipping. the QB said, click Buy. I said, no... let me think! hmm, 10 is not bad, but what if they (would) accepted lower. if I don't try, wont know... so I countered their counter with 7.50. came back hr later: accepted! :happybanana:

:p

lol, now that made me smile! :) uh-huh! :yes:

:drinkingcoffee:

Good morning. 62*/cloudy. Happy national cream filled doughnut day.:happy: Not sure whats up other than a bin of wood going out and picking a couple of dozen sweet corn for a guy. May burn some 2 stroke mix. Have a great day all. FS.
nothing quite as tasty as a fresh baked chocolate éclair! as a kid I had a paper route. early morning stuff. on way home I passed local small town bakery. :heart: those early morning cream filled choco eclairs... ummm, good!

what more can I say?...
