    Anyone remember lumberjacks?

    Is this a sign of the end?

    I think a real logger would laugh at it & a real big tree would make it run away & hide.

    Anything bigger than it's grapple can handle & it's weight can off set would scare it to death.

    I think they mainly handle cutting for pulp mills & maybe OSB.

    I could be wrong wouldn't be the first time.

    I don't have the faintest idea why---but that makes me think of Orwel's 1984.

    One of my wife's main girlfriends married a logger. We used to go out together, play cards, help each other work on the houses and yards, etc. He had some interesting tales to tell.

    Enjoy,
