    Rounded up some help to pull this one off. My uncle who was hurt had a bunch of firewood bucked not split that was to be sold. So we took care of that for him. I expected about 6 guys to show up but ended up being 20 guys show up. We split about 5 cord, delivered 3.5 cord. Had .5 cord picked up and stacked just over a cord to be sold later. The last pic was just some fun, got the 460 out to take a look. It still hasn't cut anything yet we wanted to leave that to my uncle when he gets better.

    Great to see a bunch of guys gettin' chit done for a good cause......glad to read up on your uncle too. The Lord works in mysterious ways, my friend. That accident could've been a LOT worse than it was. I'm sure he'll have fun with that 460 too, thats a dandy saw.....

    keep us posted on your uncle, your family is in my prayers...

    Incidents like this says a lot about what sort of person your Uncle is like . . . and the friends, family and neighbors he knows.
