    the morning has slipped away. so it's Good Afternoon! and some good :drinkingcoffee: reading the news and postcards from Hawaii... :)

    full agenda today. busy type! scrounge wood to go get. neighbor had an oak limb rain down, not too big, but big enuff. definitely an afternoon's campfire. but hardly 15' plume stuff... and there is some also I need to get between two locations. the rained one is out of a large oak tree, now short on time... it's coming out! and down. tops offered, but not sure I will get... still lots wood to process... well, for a home-based city lot! lol

    no rest for the weary!

    89f out, 93f high. I like that... rains on the way! and lots they say...
    Precipitation: 30%
    Wind: 6 MPH
    Humidity: 58%

    like that low humidity...

    well, bike is no mo no go! ridning on mile 4 yesterday and bam! sounded like a high powered air rifle. a lingering sound. PPPSssssssttt! but before it stopped, I had a good idea of what it was. still, to be honest... :eek: startled me. out of the peacefulness of the ride, an instantaneous disruption! :( the smooth peacefulness was no more! the milking had seen the curds give weigh... and the tire/tube... had turned into swiss cheese! I walked home!

    repairs are in order...
    zbt.jpg

    yup! no doubt... repairs r in order!

    have a nice day!

    'over n out!'

    Still close.

    If this job was in the city we could charge twice as much and the guy would jump on it. But in the semi-boonies, where this job is, with the competition there is now, ya gotta price it accordingly.

    Oh, and you are dead right about the up close and in person. We have a saying now, "A tu donner un bizzou?", meaning, "Did you hug the tree?"

    We've looked at trees from 50', priced 'em like that, and then walked right up and put our hands on it and it ain't the same thing at all. We have made that mistake more than once.

    Good evening guys.
    Had a pretty good day today.
    Managed to burn a little brush, six big piles on the forks.
    Hope you all had a great day too.

    Good evening BL.
    It's a mess, but I'm just taking it one area/one step at a time, I think it's going well all things considered ;)(although I'd like it to go faster lol).
    It took out my kids fort and one branch hit my shed, but didn't do much damage.
    I hope to get up on that side of the bed again in the morning :).

    turnips fare pretty well down here in a fall garden. but we can't grow turnips, squash and zukes in same season. squash and zukes, unless craftily started quite early succumb to vine borer issues! a big nasty looking redish-black moth leaves an egg sack under the plants leaf stem. about the size of this dot . and redish in color. ez to spot, like easy to hear machine gun fire... issue is with so many... eventually, one is sure to have a detrimental effect... affect!

    nice vegs, FS... I particularly like the consistency of your tomatoes. very commercial in appearance. corn looked great, too...

    of course, fun to see the baby BS growing...

    to me not likeing BS is like not liking cold :givebeer: lol

    but some don't like cilantro, too. BS may be a gene item as well... and over cooking them is sure to invite this from all the chowhounds at the dinner table :omg:

    lol. but like barns and wood piles... me? a B S not to like have I never seen! fresh or frozen... :numberone:
