    Shoot, I need to work on the ones I've got on the bottom shelf, and the ones sitting in the hay barn. Just need to find the time.

    Well, just hanging. Was too hot to work on stuff cause summer never ended. Then all of a sudden it's cold, not cool but cold. Gee I miss fall. Dad has been out of commission for a month after he fell and broke his neck. After surgery he's been in rehab. So me and my brother have been getting some other projects done on Saturday til the boss is back on his feet. He said he was turning the farm completely over to us on getting stuff done. We've been doing that for a few years already. He said he will piddle some and leave the rest to us. I told him he can still drive the tractor and play on the bobcat but need to take it easy.

    Dang that’s rough bill be praying for him. I know it’s probably hard for him to mentally turn it over to y’all even if it’s pretty much been done already. In my mind I help around the house but my wife reminds me she pretty much runs it and I just go to work

    He's ready to go to the farm already to get back on building a shelf in his 4wheeler shed to install a tool box on it. He's also want to build a top on his bridge he built in the woods over the creek, so he can watch the deer when it's raining. He said if he's up to it, he'll start feeding the deer sweet feed again.

    He had mentioned having all the pine timber harvest and giving me and my brother the money, but I told him it won't be ready for ten more year. I rather have him and the trees, not the money.

    @RandyMac told me I needed an Echo 302, so I figured I had better get two. The John Deere came from Carl and the Echo was part of my trade with Kensie.

    The other part of the trade was for Kensie to port my 3750. I have had & have a few ported saws but, man!, this saw gets after it. I knew it was going to be good when the test videos Kensie sent showed it handling a 28" bar no problem.

    You did a fantastic job on the saw. And it does live up to the name on the bar.
