Sometimes when you are a lumberjack, things do not go exactly as planned. Timber. The last .gif I’ve kept watching over and over. A working well designed piece of machinery. Have a great day.

    So, no substantial change to California roads from the earthquake at all.

    Well another warm day out. But it’s better than the other option. A little rain would be good, even the crops would be happy.
    Motorcycle get together this weekend. Everything has to be shined and sparkling. One day with the parts I have hanging around I’m going to build a rat bike. It will run like a fine tuned watch but it will look like it’s been through a war in a sewer. No more hours cleaning and shining…..just wrap some more duct tape around the tanks to keep them in place and hit the road.

    ~~ That written on the phone doesn’t apply to just the old days…’s even worse now. It’s not only the cops but recently Amazon admitted it listens to private conversations through Alexa.
    Trust me on this… can’t trust anything anymore. And be careful of Microwaves….they’re really sneaky! The next generation will grow up not knowing true privacy.
    ~~ That’s quite the wabbit kid….but with that blunderbuss I’m amazed there is any wabbit left.
    ~~ I truly do worry about California. I’ve read different articles from ‘experts’ and they say the BIG one will probably happen. I hope not but rumour has it that it’s due. What is also probably due is some evangelist using the earthquakes for a buck. Jim Bakker’s back….new wife, new show, new spew. That man is a few fries short of a Happy Meal.
    ~~ Yeah………I totally understand the Grinch.
    ~~ Cool little bubble car (yuck colour!). I think that’s a Messerschmitt.
    ~~ Lumberjacking is statistically the most dangerous job, at least in Canada and that guy is an idiot. He’s in a crappy position and any logger is well versed on splitting trees! (maybe it’s a Russian gif?) Anyhow….he’s damn lucky.
    ~~ Stella Stevens…..there was a day…..hubba hubba.
    ~~ That woman looks like she’s wearing a wall from the Sistine Chapel. It’s weirdly actually kinda cool.
    ~~ Elephant armour. How we have used animals for our own ends. Sad when you think about it.
    ~~ I want to know where that railroad track is!!
    ~~ That is one WICKED machine. Cuts the stump and pulls them up one after another. Wild!!!

    Well I’m outta here. This is a hot day….a Guinness day……the only time I drink beer.
    Have a good one,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    So my neighbourhood will look a lot different on Friday. In my immediate neighbourhood, the city is removing 22 emerald ash borer infected trees. These are all 45-50 year old trees that are 60 – 80 feet high. They started yesterday and finished up across the road from me today. Then the next 6 homes are having their trees cut down and so on. It is looking really blank out there. All this is from untreated wooden skids from China.

      There’s a couple I know who were importing cast iron antique reproductions from China and everything came through the port at Vancouver. Repeatedly the shipments were sent back by Canada customs because of bugs in the large wooden packing crates. This of course was a major problem for them and keeping stock in the store so they just gave up and will not buy from China again.

      They’re going to have to plant new trees on your street.

      • ODDMAN July 10, 2019 at 7:03 pm #

        There are over 20,000 white ash trees that have to come down. White ash was the developers tree of choice 45-50 years ago so it was planted extensively. The ones taken down today were 90% dead. There are 3 tomorrow that are completely dead as others further along the street. That’s where the budget is going, and not into replacement trees. The dying and dead trees are a nightmare as they will take out cars and houses in the next ice storm when the branches break.

    Summer has arrived it’s getting hot here. It’s okay by me. 🙂 (I like the heat maybe because I was born in the middle of August in a hospital with the A/C broken that day….my poor mom…)

    Deacon, we’ve been due for the big one for years now. The experts say, it comes in cycles every 20 years so yeah it’s coming it’s a matter of when. Like my dad says, I rather have an earthquake because I have all my stuff in one pile and it’s dry. As long as we are prepared we’ll be fine. That’s what I need to do, once I get a job and get going again I need to get myself a preparedness kit.

    The one earthquake I dislike is the Northridge (94) (I was 10). My dad, working as an electrician, worked 20+hr days for 59 days straight. We (my brother, sisters, and I ) didn’t see him, and asked our mom each morning if he came home, which he did. After all that, on his first day off I believed he slept for most of the day.


    Love the little girl with the rabbit. Nice gun too.

    Joana’s Vasconcelos art is pretty nice. I like it.

    Now that’s a cool stump remover!

    I like Stella Stevenson’s hat. Very colorful, and perfect shade to cover one self when out in the sun! 🙂

    The phone gives good advice. Watch what you say. That’s why I distrust Google Home/Alexa….not to be trusted…along with those DNA kits but that’s for another day for my wild conspiracy theories….

    Love the scarecrow photo! Scarecrow are those friends of yours? ^_^

    Have a good one,

      The scarecrows belong to the BOS-Brotherhood of Scarecrows. We have an annual convention in Nebraska cornfields after the corn is harvested & we get a weeks paid vacation. Some bring their pet crows, sit on their shoulders like pirate parrots, and some carry their crosses that they are hung on for the “Who looks like Jesus crucified” contest. The winner gets a gold thorn headband.
      So yes, I know those three-they like to watch the Three Stooges in their down time. Those guys crack me up doin old sketches.
      As for stump grinding-a coupla vets with one arm missing started a stump grinding business in our area a while back.
      And no-not really for this whole comment-just in a crazy mood.
      Scarecrow gone.

        Now that’s so like a good Love it! 🙂

        Thanks for the smile!

    In looking closely at wabbit kid, I’m pretty sure that the rifle shown is only the stock and receiver and the barrel has been taken off. Now I’m trying to decide if that is a huge rabbit or a very small kid. The snow scene definitely gave a memory tug. I remember mornings like that as a kid. They were rare but stunning. And yeah I’m on board with the Grinch. Sorry about the trees. I have a particular fondness for big old trees. And have always hated when they have to be culled because of disease. I still remember how upset I was when they cut down four huge Elm trees in our yard as a kid from Dutch Elm disease. They were so majestic and then gone. Such a waste.
