I normally don't take naps, especially on the weekend. I wasn't planning on doing much, but my Wife commented that a neighbor that walk's past the house daily stops behind the large Cedar bush and she doesn't know what he is doing. So... I loaded up the "Crew" and proceeded to trim the bush. Two full trailer loads and it was done. I should have stopped there, but there was two more Cedar bushes and two Mesquite these in the front yard that needed attention. I finished those up around 5:00 yesterday. I slept really well and expected some soreness but not bad. Today starting around 9:00 I tackled the trees and bushes along the drive out to the back yard. 5 large loads and I stopped to watch the NASCAR Race. 10 Minuets into the race I was out. I woke up just in time to catch the last 30 laps. Soreness has kicked in, so I took some Advil, Put the Crew away and calling it quits for the day. There are about 6 - 8 more trees and bushes that need trimmed, and the back yard still needs mowed. There is always next weekend.

Not a good move Larry!  The cedar bushes look better out back than one of these.

My wife says NASCAR is the best sport to watch.

Watch the 1st 30-50 laps, take a nap, wake up to watch the last 50 laps and you have seen it all!

If there is something spectacular, they will show it again and again, and again........

That's a trailer load! It's funny how addictive snipping branches off can get. Just like shooting a moose, the real work starts the moment it hits the ground. :(

Yea, I think I hauled 5-6 trailer full out back to the brush pile. Man is that getting BIG! I guess some burning is in the future. The bush was a privacy fence, close to the road, blocked the view from the porch. Couldn't see the water meter readers jumping the fence to read the meter.
