White Family :1

Stupid sap dripping sugar maple tree : 0

 

 

 

 

After 22 hours of being awake I fell out. 

 

This morning I got up after everyone else had breakfast.

Heath was playing with a train. Steph was playing on her laptop. Jared was in Heaths bedroom building a fort out of Megablocks for his two rats. He is taking them home today. 

 

 

 

After I was vertical we headed outside. 

 

 

I borrowed Grahams bid Homelite chainsaw. My little Poulan was not going to get it done. 

 

While cutting down the first half the chainsaw decided to stop running. I tinkered with it and found the fuel line was broken. I cut about a inch out of it. I had to hold it leaning toward the blade for it to get fuel after that.

 

Since the tree was halfway cut thru I really had to hurry had to hurry. 

 

 With that half on the ground and cut to manageable chunks it got drug over to Grahams house by Jared and the Hemorrhoid.

The second half was the bigger of the two. And it was leaning toward the shop. 

 

I made my pie cut and started on the back side when the saw decided it was not going to cut anymore. 

 

I sent Steph on a rabid search for the files while Jared held tension against eh tree with the Hemorrhoid. The poor hydro was crying for relief. 

 

When the tree started to move I let off the trigger of the saw and tried to pull it out. Then the line on the tree went slack. The Hemorrhoid decided to show herself and hiccuped. The tree leaned backwards and I ran toward the tractor. Steph was pulling with all she had on the line Just as I got there the Hemorrhoid decided it had better behave and it began to pull. The tree rotated about 30 degrees on the saw bar and then fell sideways. Fortunately away from the carport. 

 

Had the saw not been stuck in there it would have fell the wrong way. As ti was it fell perfectly between the two engines on stands and clipped a work bench. No damage on anything. We got lucky. 

 

Once that was chopped up and dragged across the road we picked up all the small limbs and loaded them on Christine. Jared drove it down in the field with Heath riding shotgun and Steph sitting on the limbs. I should have gotten a picture but I was drenched in sweat and didn't want to touch my phone. 

 

We caught our breath fore a while and I tried to get Grady's trimmer started. No luck. My shoulder said no more and I ordered pizza for supper. I think we earned it. 

 

After a nice long shower to get all the tree sap off me the pizza arrived. 

 

I am worn out and I still have to drive 2 hours to take Jared home. I may send Steph. She enjoys it.

I like these detailed accounts of your escapades. Makes my life seem, a tad boring...

I always read Willie's stuff.  May 24th's post was especially delightful being he seems so horribly against anything to do with FORD, but he has an awesome FORD pull the dead Chevy from the tree.   :rolling:  :poke:
