    Sunday's Plans......

    Well, I got my Sunday planned out, take the girls to ice skating lessons BEFORE 7:30 AM, them meet up with fellow Canuck and wood worker Alex at 8 AM, drive out of Tokyo a ways to meet up at Jim's place where they have some wood waiting for us to butcher up into bowl blanks...............

    This is the two largest chunks of the Ginko tree that was taken down

    Jim was able to get the removale company to move the trees to the parking area, so we did not mess up the school grounds, where the tree was taken down.

    Should be a fun day, and some hard work, not to worry, I'll take the camera!

    Cheers!

    Thats a Ginko?? Man, must not be same thing we get here. If so that tree was like 1.000 years old! We had one we that lived 3 years and suddenly died. I never could tell it grew an inch.

    Sounds like a fun a day!

    (I just checked a time zone converter and I see that Stu is 14 hours ahead of me here in the Eastern zone. It's almost 10:30am here, which makes it half-past midnight for our dungeon-dwelling friend.)

    Yep, the MILFH just showed up, so now I can go to the Dungeon and load all of my various implements of destruction into my truck

    I'm +9 hours GMT, if that makes any sense

    Cheers!

    But aren't you only about 14-15 hours ahead? Or is it more than that? From the marked time on your posts, I would have thought it was late night, not early morning. Ooops, I don't drink coffee, and I've given up my morning Dr. Pepper, which leaves me no caffeine intake. Maybe I need some of those trucker pills!!! Jim.

    edit: Well I see the answer to my question now....Maybe I better start drinking my one DP for the day for breakfast!!

    Stu, you mention that this is at a school. In the parking space next to the truck in the second picture, how come I can read the first two letters on the ground (I mean beside the fact that I graduated fourth grade)? I'm guessing the word is BUS but I'm surprised to see letters that I can read.

    Care to explain?

    BTW, that's a nice bunch of big stinkin' logs you've got there. How much of it do you get? How much are you going to be able to fit into your van?
    Thanks.
    Thanks, Mark.

    Looks like fun Stu. I used to do some logging, bandmilling and such.
    I'd come in plum tuckered out from a hard day in the woods, but very enjoyable.

    Makes you sleep on your side of the bed at night.

    Sure, as soon as you read what is on the SIDE of the truck in the same pic

    The school is one of them "American" schools, don't want to mention the name, as I don't want anyone to get in some kind of "dutch" some how (stranger things have happened!).

    Well I guess I get 1/3 as there are three guys, but Jim don't do the lathe thing (YET!!) so he does not want that much, and Alex, while he does the lathe thing, he is a could 1 1/2 from Tokyo by train, so he can't really carry that much home in his backpack

    I think we will cut and seal it, then take as much back as I can, but store the rest at Jim's school (he is the industrial arts teacher there), and come back for a second or third load, heck the stuff that gets left behind might just spalt....

    I'm on my way here in a few minutes, back at you guys later today (for me!)

    Cheers!
