OOOooppppsssie !



I spent considerable time cutting limbs from this tangle of downed trees today in an attempt to beat the storm. There's Oak, Elm, Hackberry and Mulberry twisted together by a tornado that hit us three years ago. I am wanting it cleaned up so I can mow the area again easily. I had a heaping pickup load by about 4 just as the rain started.

I'd come up to the house to warm up when the icy rain began ... the little pellets of ice mixed in.

I made us corn chowder for dinner then set down with JD to watch TV... I fell asleep before the first commercial was over.

yeah sometimes the fresh air and all that work you do cutting the wood, cutting wood is really physical I understand I have to do it myself, know at least after 4 or 5 hours of cutting wood I'm pretty tired out myself,

IF they don't sell herbicide in Canada to kill it get a bag of SALT and dump on the roots that will kill them... least wise it worked for the Romans.

It's not all flat fields of corn and soybeans. We have some scenic areas to share.

This rubbish has been an eyesore to me and I get the worst down JD can burn the rest.
