other projects this summer
well, i finally fenced in the back property line. the neighbor wanted the fence in, i hadnt prioritized it - we did some horse-trading.
3 big grey pines dropped in the backyard. these trees were leaners (~60-80 feet tall) and when we had the 18 inches of snow during the winter of '09 - they were leaning too far for my comfort over my boat.
so with a little quid pro quo - he got a fence in sooner and i got 3 huge trees cutdown. pretty sweet. i even found a taker for the wood - so my boys and i got it cut and stacked and the wood is now up in pollock pines ready to keep someones house warm.
i have some pretty cool pix of the fence and the guy up in the tree - but for life of me i can t make this blog take them vertically - even though they show up properly on my desktop. go figure. so you get to see 3 of my fav guys who helped out on the project. (l-r) austin, andrew and jed.
