it would appear my sinuses are going to be clogged this morning.

At least the coffee is good.

What to do, what to do…Renee has some errands to run later (groceries) and I should probably spend some afternoon time cutting up more trees. I really want to have a go at the “widow-maker” out back, because every time I see it out off the back windows, it bugs me. That and the bent trees the neighbor is ignoring on the property line.

Those might be my goals for the day – all the visually annoying crap. Stuff I don’t have to cut & stack, but that has to come down anyway. Dead leaning trees, trees that are alive, but have exposed root-balls, and so it’s not possible to save, any tree that’s still bent horizontal to the ground….

I *HEART* my chainsaw. *grin*

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    Another thing that I can’t say without making people nervous :). Happy birthday, by the way.

    yeah, for some reason the idea that I won a cahinsaw makes lots of people nervious.

    And thanks to you, I’m now looking for a tree just the right size for a Go board. Not that I’ve found one yet, mind you…if you happen to have a down hardwood with a 28-30 inch diameter, give a yell, and I’ll be over to take care of about 6 inchecs of it *grin*

    ..and thanks for the birthday greets.

    I did in July: the city took that 100+ year old beech down, remember? If this had been a topic then, I could have had them slice the freaking thing up into 6″ slabs without a problem. If you don’t find a big downed tree left, as most of the ice storm damage has been cleaned up citywide, I’d suggest going by the lumber yard across from the fairgrounds and just buying a big slab off them.

    That might not be a bad idea. one of my co-workers has a prospect in his yard, but until I get a look at it, I’m not gonna get all excited.

    I keep forgetting about the people across from the fairgrounds – that they’re a lumber yard, and not just a large xtian art installation.
