    Sheesh! And the final cuts were one-handed! Yikes!

    Some say the land of milk and honey; others say the land of fruits and nuts. All together my sort of heaven.

    Power is not taken. It is given. Who have you given yours to? Hmmmm?

    Great commercial material for Stihl tools. Cannot imagine doing that and then using one hand to operate chainsaw. May 30 years ago.

    He sure looks very expert with that chain saw and knows what he is doing. Still a very dangerous occupation.
    And, agree, a serious YIKES!

    I've done that---In the past and probably not over 25 feet from the ground. It is scary, even at that height. Even so, the last few trees removed were done by someone else---cluck, cluck, ka ducket!

    It was done like a real pro. Also, I did not see a single chicken feather float to earth, so that must be the man.

    That is one darn good looking 10" chain saw. The handle position is much better than the 16" I have now. AND, I repeat, the handle position, is much better for that one-handed stuff. I'm going to check that out and, perhaps, give Glenn and Myrna ulcers again. Now that is wishful thinking.

    There are so many things that this stiff ole' body just cannot do any more. Glenn got to install the last garbage disposal---I thought I was going to lose him as a son over that one. Then there is the rib I broke installing a new kitchen sink faucet. Don't get old. Not only do your brains leak out but parts become fragile. On the other hand, it is a GREAT life.

    First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.
