Figured that I’d make today a “chain saw day” Did manage to finish up with the oak that came down on the south fence line, and spent some time with the loppers hacking away the crown on the other downed tree near the yard fence. Lucky for me, the goats had 3 days or so to work the downed crown over, so there weren’t many leaves to deal with–makes it a lot easier to get the loppers in where they need to be. By about noon thirty, I was soaking wet, and ready to cool off, and that just about ended any progress I was making. Have only gone out again to fill the bird feeders, and I think I’ll grab the camera and get a few after the rain pictures to put up on this blog. Maybe, I’ll have enough gumption left in me to crank up the saw again later–much later–this afternoon/evening.
OK—did take the old camera on a little walk about, here are the results
