Hyrda's Big Project

We started breaking up the branches and twigs in the back yard Friday night (from the downed tree) and filled a big trash container and six or seven big bags.

I sawed up some of the medium branches that evening. Today Hydra bought a chain saw and got to work on the bigger branches.

Wow, what a lot of work! That's a 4 pound hammer. I tried splitting one log and it was about all I could do to get through it.

Gonna get the IcyHot ready!

Kitty and I were shopping in Palmdale all afternoon. We were tired too.

I'd prefer shopping in Palmdale to splitting up all that wood. Wow, that's a workout!

LA- Good choice! It wouldn't have gotten done if I'd had to do it. Really hard lifting that hammer numerous times.

Disclaimer - There were no spotted owls in the tree. I think a real lumber jack would laugh at my hatchet and 4 lb hammer. A real lumber jack would use a double bladed axe. Of course a real lumber jack would also be wearing a dress. - I've seen Monty Python and I know that for a fact.

Hydra - You're a lumberjack, and you're okay!

'twas my brother who was the lumber jack. I was the armor recon scout. We few, we happy few, we band of brothers.
