Default Re: What are you doing today?

Today the fitness center to walk on the treatmill and flirt with a lady I've had a few coffee dates with. Then I'm going to help one of my county supervisors make a commercial. He's running for reelection and wants a video of what he has done and is going to do to help Veterans, so I'm glad to help him. Then lunch with them. Then a meeting with the Council Bluffs Rifle and Pistol Club.

Not a whole lot on my plate today. Just a dental appointment for one of the kids. So I will head out soon to do a little thrift store shopping to see what deals I can muster up. Particularly in camping gear. Some good deals to be had. Eg. A fellow scout leader picked up a small propane heater that goes normally for $100. He got it for $7. I may try finding a good arctic sleeping bag at an army surplus store as we will be doing a bit of winter camping with the scouts. I have one but it's 25 years old and doesn't hold the heat anymore.

I will be spending much of the day at the local high school making children cry

Well, I will be critiquing their senior projects in one of the classes. If I make them cry that is just a bonus

Nothing today to report that is exciting other than I did not get put in Farcebook jail.
I guess the email notification I got was a warning of sorts, then a friend told me change your password silly.
I did.
It worked.

Considering all of the security problems they've had, just getting rid of your account might be the best thing. You have enough "stuff" in your life without Farcebook.

I know, but there are a lot of things I post here that I can only find on there.
Besides, I've tons of friends and family on there who would be disappointed if I did.

I saw my babies and Ty.
It's a sad situation right now.
They miss me like crazy.
She is adamant that it's over.
I'm glad it is, for his sake.
A woman like her doesn't know how to make a happy, healthy home.

She's living with a "friend" and her child, says she's going back to work and put the girls in daycare.
I don't believe it.at.all.
Meanwhile he's back in the big house by the dam and not sleeping at the shop.

Yesterday we dropped the big oak from my front yard. I hired a service because of the size and proximity to my house, (and my neighbor's as well)

Not as big as the one NIXON just cut up but a lot of firewood just the same.

They used a "LIMBINATOR" to grab and surgically remove each branch. Stacked them on my front yard and put the 12 foot of main trunk ( 37" diameter at 24" off the ground and 30" at twelve feet.) on my trailer. I'm guessing it weighs in about 5,000 Lbs

Tonite we have to cut the limbs up in pieces sizable to load and haul off my front yard. The trunk goes to a friend who has a sawmill and makes tabletops from large oaks and walnut trees. With no rot or damage inside, this one is prime for him

The bedroom is finally mudded in and primed. That gets painted, and the furniture moved in so our tropicals can have the back porch before a killing frost comes in.

Gonna be a busy week end.

Pretty good estimate !! I ran two programs and came up with 4090 and 5030 !

Thanks.

With the exception of the two big trunk pieces, I got the rest of the limbs cut to 14"firewood size. All with a 14" Chicago electric chainsaw I bought from Harbor freight for $69.00. Absolutely amazed that the blade stayed sharp , and still is, for that kind of money

Both of my cantankerous Husky's stayed in the garage.

I'm debating having the top trunks cut into table tops. The wood has no center rot or defects but lots of knots making for an interesting grain pattern. The same guy who will be using the main trunk could do it.
