    After changing a front wheel u-joint on Mrs. Quads' Jeep, then rotating the tires to unsuccessfully find the source of an odd vibration, I decided it was time to cut some wood!

    Got my saw chain tangled in one of Grandpa's old fences.

    And these are the hands that do it all!

    Good stuff Quads! Some grease under the nails, some dirt and blood and I'm sure the palm side shows the years and years of hard work too. Way to go sir!

    If I had your woods I would be doing that.
    I don't so I have been bringing home free shipping pallets all week.

    Thanks! Hope all of you had a nice Easter too!

    I was wondering if someone would ask how I held the camera! I made a clamp/tripod out of an old spotting scope tripod, which I can clamp to tree branches or anything. I clamped it to one of the stakes on the side of my trailer, set the timer, and stuck my hands in front of the camera.

    Ha! Nope, real blood. Happens everyday. The raspberries are thick, and full of thorns. I only wear gloves when my hands are cold.

    It still has it. I don't know. It's got me kind of stumped. Someone suggested a front hub bearing, but there was no play in the one I took off to change the joint, and that's the corner where it seems to be coming from. It didn't have it until after I put new tires on two months ago, and still has it after rotating them. So for now I'm just going to chalk it up to an old car and not worry about it until something falls off! It only does it around left-hand curves at highway speeds. It's like the hum that you would get from aggressive truck tires.

    Ya, ripping the wood apart with my bare hands is the preferred method. I only use the maul when my arthritis is acting up and I'm feeling weak. ;-)

    Naw, you'd best stick to the maul quads. Leave the hands for the stacking.
