    I like the coordinated pink crocs with pink jacket. The orange saw and ear things need to be pink also.

    This came home from the Candy Store today. I also got some Little Logger suspenders and a whistle. Parents like it when you get THEIR kids whistles. Maybe I should have asked for full skip chain?

    He lives on the east coast. It's the land of short bars and half wraps. He'll need to take that protector thing off the tip of the bar and he'll be ready to bore cut!:)

    The guy at the counter said a lot of little kids come in and want hatchets, because hatchets are like little axes for them. Sounds like the parents don't want them to have hatchets. I wonder why?

    Hey now! I live closer to the EC than the WC, and I use long bars and full wraps (thanks to you all!) and am not a fan of boring at all!! ;)

    Remember the old George Washington fable........... sumthin' bout a cherry tree...... Mine is six and I don't think I would turn him loose with a hatchet unsupervised yet wither......... I can only imagine! He is getting pretty handy at splitting kindling with daddy!

    I got a hatchet for my boy last year. Left it dull. He chopped himself in the shin within the hour. We now have one living tree left in the yard

    shoot i ain't far as the crow flies..........i ain't goin over that bridge though..........that is a congested place.

    i tell ya what though, if they get on this side he has a standing offer for a short ride on a skidder around the landing.........or he can sit on it and pretend to drive.
    this is a popular weekend getaway for that side......beeches here.

    I think it is crowded for them. Both are from our fair state. They are near a hospital that they need for a daughter with major medical problems. I think they would like to move back here eventually, but not now.

    Two coats of the Citrustrip and it is mostly a silver hat. I'll sand off the stubborn stuff tomorrow. Thanks for the suggestion Haywire!

    Not to worry. Most all is off and sandpaper will take off the little bits left.
