Summer Chores

Maybe that should say more fencing.  In between me working full-time on the Rotary food booth, Joan has been helping me put up the last 90 feet of fence we had planned for this summer.

We like the cedar board fence style that was started by the previous owner, so we have been extening it across the rest of the back (north) line of our two properties.


We also have been working at pruning off the dead branches from the many pine trees surrounding our house.  That's me with an 18 volt DeWalt reciprocating saw.

We had an 8" pine that was completely dead (and leaning toward the garage).  Not being completely sure of my ability to fell it away from the garage- Joan provided some insurance in the form of a rope tied to the Suzuki.

I make the face cut, and give it some tension with the rope- then make the back cut.

Success!  And no, it did not hit the car either.

Now if we just had a wood stove, all would be perfect.
