Good Monday morn :drinkingcoffee: .
68 here now heading to 75, not too bad.
Big week this week, feels like fall is almost here with all I have going on :dizzy:, that would be right on time with regards to the early start I got this spring though. Bought another trailer last night I need to clean up a bit and then finish up the tree job I started last week before my allergies kicked in(pretty sure it isn't the delta variant, but whatever). I need to do a bit of climbing to dead limb ahighly valuable black walnut and a little pruning on some that go over the house too. I also have 5 stumps to flush cut and an ash log to buck up.
Here's a few pictures from last week. @Groundman One , what do you think of that big portages-wrap, gotta do what you gotta do when your a one man show lol.
Have a great week everyone.

You can see the end of one of the dead limbs above the fire pit, nice they are all out in the open, they just need to be zip-lined down.

Morning,

Kinda hard to see, but have you got a block attached to a chain on the tree and then to a tractor? Very cool!

78/56 & sunny, another open windows day

Congrats to the Canadian Women's Soccer Team that outlasted the US women's team, 1-0.
The last time Canada's women's team won against the US squad was 20 years ago.

Good morn all
And kudos to the US goalie for walking by and congratulating the Canadian goal scorer. Good sportsmanship right there.

Good evening guys.
Had a good day and got everything I planned on getting done done and even a few more things
It felt pretty warm working today, but I guess that happens less when you're in shape, rather than out of shape. The good thing is round is a shape lol.
Hung out with friends tonight here at the house and had a nice time.
Hope you all had a productive day too.
hi chipper - did u light up your burn circle? i saw its stone layers in one of your pix... pretty snazy - mine at ranch could use a mod or two...

Mornin' folks. 15ºC and sunny. Office work this morning. Picked up the Sterling truck this morning, it took them 10 days to replace the thermostat. Elec fan seems to be kicking in and out ok they said. The trip home the temps is about 20ºF lower than previous. So maybe problem solved. Squeek in the brakes is back, but maybe that's just from sitting in a dust parking lot for 2 weeks. Have a good one!

good morning - plenty good hot :drinkingcoffee:rains in the forecast and area. 80/97. greens and yellows S of us. tv weatherman said winds 5/N...windmill poised and ready, but waiting. 70% rains. never had a prime rib burger, plenty good venison, ground chuck and/or sirloin. maybe when i am not so broke, i could pay attention to a thought like that... the ballgame road rage shooter decided to give up the ghost yesterday. turned himself in. over 100 tips came in. walked up to the COH PD downtown with Quanell X... he had a large waiting party!! says he is innocent, was at a party at time it all happened. but, of course... they did find his car. less than a mile from where he lived... burnt out to a crisp! got most of my trimming done last night around the yard. still one area to whittle thru. had to be careful around the beans... overall, it didn't seem like too much work. and it was the cooler time of day. got out about 6:30 pm... after a brief snoozeout.... :) in no time i was soaked! in shape or out of shape... don't think it would have mattered. had to stop and clear my face numerous times. lost 3# or so water. weighed in before and after. quit bit before 9 pm and i was thirsty! ~
