I'm home! Do you wonder where I was and what I was doing all week? I was helping a friend with his tree service. I was just grunt and go-fer crew. I was able to take a few pictures of my friend, Doug, working. Other than that there sure wasn't time for any picture taking!
Above, a tree is about to fall exactly where Doug planned.
I managed to catch this one coming down!
There were a couple of guys who were cutting the trees up after they came down. I spent almost all my time, carrying, fetching, moving wood, raking, and hauling. It's been a while since I've done full 8-hour days of that kind of labor, so I wasn't sure how I'd hold up. But, except for being tired, everything went fine.
Sorry, but I'm still too tired to be back into my regular blogging schedule. And I have to go to bed early tonight, because I have to do the paper route tomorrow morning. I'm taking the rest of the day after that to CRASH!
It was a great week, although heavy work, and I made enough money to help with December. That's a quality day (week)!
