Thread: Small Gloat

    Small Gloat

    I finaly got to use my new wood hauler. Large storm went through a couple days ago and took down a large Mesquite tree where my wife works. She got me permission to get some of it. What a great excuse to buy a new saw. As you can see I picked up a 211 Stihl. After getting the saw I took it to try it out and got these dozen blanks. Went to get more today and it was all gone.

    Remember the tea kettle - it is always up to its neck in hot water, yet it
    still sings!

    can you see.... I'm sticking my tongue out at you....

    Mesquite is such a cool wood. I have a smaller log (long story) and have not yet made use of it. Lot of stuff on my ticket but I hope by Fall.... Blah Blah

    That's a very nice haul, and you're gonna love having the Stihl. I've got the MS390, and it's a wood-eatin' son of a gun.

    Great haul on the wood, and that saw should keep you happy for some time too

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
