    Wood Gloat!

    I went back for my third load of wood from this maple tree in the neighborhood, and a little don't know wood, maybe hackberry? Owner just wanted it gone. I was happy to do so. If I had more room there is still some good size chunks left. The big ones are 16" h and 21" in diameter!! I will be taking one big chunk to my dad next weekend to pay back all the blanks he has given me.

    Chuck, follow the tree trimmers and ask the land owners if you can have some pieces of wood. Eliminates the need for a chainsaw!

    Or borrow one from a friend or family member. I will be using my MIL's chainsaw.

    Johnathan,
    Unfortunately I usually work from 7:00am until about 6:00pm & by the time I get home after walking for 9 hrs outside all I want to do is sit on my cute tushy

    Well I got some vacation days coming up I'll try my local yard waste dump.

    Chuck
