    Chill and easy day with a homeowner clean-up. A handful of tree to canopy raise for the house power line. Fell a couple littles, double-trunk alder to pop a handful of re-growth tops from storm damage and fell spars. Jumped up on my springboard to top a rotten locust at around 10' to clear the obstacles in the lay. Kinda slowed down to not get in and out, without the feeling that he was overcharged. Some people are funny that way. Think you should charge less because you work efficiently. Power line was rehung before I left. Another satisfied customer. $100 tip. Pick-up truck only, 5 minutes down the road. Home for a late lunch, then a couple errands before grabbing the kid from friends.

    I've been eye-ing the WMLT15wide that Dave suggested, if this 42" cut-homemade bandsaw on a trailer, doesn't turn out. I'm willing to finance something better than what I could pay now/ pay-off sooner. I'm refinancing my mortgage at the moment, so the mill purchase will be at least after that. Finding the time to do it all is difficult. I've been trying to find time to chainsaw mill huge pieces for a long time, that are sitting out in the weather, not end-sealed. Tree work pays predictably the end of the project. Might be sending D to public school this year, instead, freeing up a good number of dollars. Portability versus capacity, one facet.

    Crane-question, standing up single-sling picks on barberchair-prone species... Any issues? A crane job I did about 5 years ago, I had a forest maple start to split me. Wasn't being stood up really, but split all the same. Before cutting, I wrapped it with about 4- 6 turns of 1/2" rope that I had, for whatever reason. Maybe small diameter for a chain binder, dunno. Poor choice. I bailed out on an SRT -choking canopy and he just broke the uncut bit free. A small pick for his capacity. Just the top off of one of the smaller maple trees, out of 8, so the details blur.

    No disagreement there. However, there is social bullying through Facebook Likes, or withheld likes. Social obligation to Like a friend's post, and such silliness. The like button doesn't encourage discussion.

    I like the turner idea. Maybe less slamming cants into the mill. Like the board pusher. A guy I know made his WM push the other direction, on the regular return pass.

    Many people are 'Like' addicted, as social approval releases dopamine in most. They want their fix, like all addicts.

    She probably just sinks. I do, unless I have my lungs super full, then my face, not head, barely sticks out, and I start to sink right away if I exhale, without treading water. Maybe a slim weight belt.

    ...balanced with a measured dose of scaring stuff, just no touchy. My one gutter incident was $300. A small maple branch, aerodynamically butt-down tagged it a little. A little was too much. My friend used to call brushing roofs and lines giving it the "HI 5". Strong rock climber, 5.8 tree climber.

    HaHaHa. Locally, when they subdivide acreage, the original residence address won't change, and the new addresses are occasionally out of chronological order. broadcasts.unleashed. credited...kinda harder with plurals and tenses.

    Routine procedures, done uninterrupted, or started again, save lives. Any more, my foot doesn't want to leave the brake pedal until the parking brake is set, truck in first gear if manual. Bad habits, you die hard. During a storm, I was flying around on a crane taking a tree off a house. My friend, the general contractor was off bidding more work. A groundie, who had never been trained or allowed to move a truck, moved a truck so someone could get out of their driveway. Didn't put it in gear, and the parking brake, one way or another, was not enough. The truck full of chips and BC1250 on the back started to creep down the steep hill, just beyond the very top toward an occupied house at the bottom. Had the groundie not noticed and run around and been able to push the brake, it would have leveled the house. Yet some people don't understand why there are procedures, and not everyone gets to make independent decisions about things on a worksite. Some people 'just want to help' like that guy that was almost responsible for massive destruction, and possibly death. Especially during storm work, buildings on fire, and other emergency, high pressure, high consequence situations, training, procedures, and solid decision-making are life-savers. The firefighter trainee that worked for me for a bit, until he finished his FF training and moved back to Seattle, said that they were training, performing a Left-Hand Sweep (or something like that, where you NEVER take your Left hand off the wall). Trainee #2 took his hand off, and got lost quickly in the black-out conditions. Their air tank alarms were going off (or whatever), and they were about to have to start breathing the "safe for training" artificial smoke. Yikes.

    Brain injuries only occur in sunlight. Don't worry. Only wear PPE when you think you'll get hurt. ;)

    Locally, most street addresses are 123 Main St NW, Olympia WA 98502 Somehow, some people forget to say the direction (quadrant of the town, with main street running east /west or North/ south. Unless its going to be 123 Fourth Av West. From the dividing intersection, there will be 123 Main NW, 123 Main SW, 123 Main SE, and 123 Main SW. GPS doesn't even have all the local roads, some of which have been there for decades. French Lane NW doesn't show up on Google. French Road NW, French Loop NW does. At least people are good at giving directions with landmarks that don't exist, or say the third to last Left...Olympia!

If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.
Don't know why I'm question-mark challenged online. 😀 New Year's Resolution, better proof reading.
