That's next... I will cut it down as low as possible to save time with the grinder. I have another stump up by the house too, so I will try to get them both in the 4 hour rental.

Too Many Projects I have a ~35 ft Boxelder tree I wanted removed for a couple years now. It was crowding the Maple I planted next to it, so today I cut that sucker down...





I limbed it out and piled the brush on the trailer and hauled it to the compost site.





Came back, cut up the trunk and moved the pieces to the shop driveway as FREE wood, come and take it away...

Jumped off the 454 I bought a few months ago. It has been sitting for several months. Not only did it fire right up but there wasn't so much as a lifter click when it started even a hint of smoke. I believe that is a dandy motor.

I also replaced the belt tensioner on my Silverado for the second time in 6 weeks.

Thirdly, I now have my weatherstrip channel about 80% finished.

Fourthly, I dug out and rinsed off 5 '53 hubcaps I am sending to our friend Brian.

It truly was a wunnerful day today. Wunnerful, wunnerful. ......... Ain't life just plain grand?

It's too wonderful for words! I thank you so much for the caps, will be out there getting some cleaning done (digging out the truck) so I can get back to it in the next coming days. It's hotter than a two dollar pistol here! (I could use one of my dad's metaphors but they are XXX rated. )

Ain't life grand, God yes! Last night I went out to the swankest restaurant in town for my wife and my 24th wedding anniversary. Been there once before, about 25 years ago when I was trying to impress her.

But honestly, spent Saturday in SF with her in North Beach a wonderful Italian district with too much wonderful food to mention! Got my blood test done on Saturday morning and the results say I have gotten my numbers down to normal, is life grand, damn right!

Nick got his drivers license yesterday, he is doing well, I have another grandbaby on the way (a boy) OMG is life grand! My daughter is having fun decorating her room I made for her, she is having such fun and I am having it watching her. Is life Grand, OMG yes it is!

Fascinating - never seen one of those in action before.

Picture a 4 foot thick log, cut 10 feet long, laying on it's side.

Attach an aluminum rail to the top side.

Now put a 4 foot long slider on the rail. Slider has a big bandsaw blade and a chainsaw to power it. Set the depth so that you get a 4 inch thick cut

Fire up the BIG Stihl-powered band saw and slide it along the rail, yielding a 4 inch thick, 4 foot wide, 10 feet long slab of wood. Yeesh!

Got sunburned watching.
It's cool to watch eh? I have a mate who 20 years ago cut all my timber for my upstairs extension. His portable machine was good to watch my future extension while I watched. He also milled my kitchen ceiling out of native rimu timber. It's a beautiful timber from the west coast here.

I love to watch stuff like that. I was going through Oregon on the eastern side of the Cascades one time and had to stop and watch a logging machine that grabbed a seventy foot pine , saw it off at the bottom, tip it on it's side , suck it through a de-limbing cycle and lop it off in ten foot lengths. All in under ten minutes.

Harder still to admit...

Seeing as how I had over 120 cars by the time I was 30, that 3 was a major statement to my "affection" for Henry's products...

I currently have 8 Bowties and 1 Bar and Shield vehicle. My wife's Acura is the only foreign car in the stable.

Well, this was a "see if it fits" week for both him and the shop. The owner knows it's not a fit for everyone so he has the new guy work a week for cash and see if he likes it and fits before he puts him on the payroll. He told the owner Wednesday that he wouldn't be coming back this week and the guy was cool with it. However, after seeing the cash!.......he is going to call him and see if he needs the help being he didn't have any others to take the job right now.

But yeah, that money at the end of the week sparked a fire. But yeah, I learned a lot about the place chatting with my son in the evenings, he was busting his butt but still not nearly fast enough. And having to work with worn out scuff pads because you allotted a certain amount......he was beat.

It's all protected now, he wants me to put it out in the garage.
