Most people do something special for their birthday, I didn't. Lol. I started out by cutting up a tree and splitting it after I hauled it back to my house almost a week ago. It was not a lot at all, only about 10 minutes to split it. I was going to stack it also, but I had the mower deck for the 195 in front of one of the wood piles. I have been wanting to clear out a spot to put all of my implements so they are not all scattered all over the place. Behind on of my sheds was a big ol' mess! So, in order to stack the little amount of wood I started clearing out behind the shed so I could have a place to put the mower deck. First I moved a snow blower with no engine, a snow blower with no front half, a movers hand truck and the receiver hitch that broke off of a truck in my trailer. I brought all of that down into the woods where I have all of my parts machines. Then I moved the rest of the stuff. There were 6 pallets, 7 cinder blocks, a wooden ramp and some other odd stuff. Then I weed whacked and now I have a small area to put some stuff!

You can kinda see the mess in this pic.

Here is my little area now.

I still have yet stack the wood, or move the mower deck. LOL! I will do that tomorrow, as well as put some other stuff back there to organize a little better.

Ryah, Happy Birthday and welcome to adult status. Nothing special on a birthday, just more of the same, maybe a cake from mom.

Hope you had some special moment today.

The area around the shed looks a whole lot better. It's always nice to clean up an area like that, time permitting.

Well I got some other stuff done now too! I cleaned the carb on the 312, and trimmed the brush line. Now, maybe I can mow without getting cut up by the prickers! I started to trim, about a half hour through I got a phone call... my brother was calling me to come back to the house. Apparently, it is somebody's birthday and it was time for cake. I told them to do it without me, but they felt it would be best if I was there. I was able to finish trimming after that, but the branches are still on the ground, if I was not disturbed I would have been able to finish!

You got quite a bit accomplished today Ryan. I bet it made you feel good to get things a bit more organized. A little break doesn't hurt either. :thumbs:

Happy belated birthday Ryan! I hope you had a good one! Cleaning up around the shop is always a good idea, whenever you get time to do that. Looks good.

Thanks!

I got all of the brush picked up and I brought it into the woods and dumped it.
