    What happened to quads? I did have some contact with him and I think we'll see him back on the forum before too long. For sure I invited him and made it known to him that many wish for his return. Let's all hope he does come back so we can all enjoy his pictures and his knowledge. He is a good man.

    He did say he is a bit behind on his firewood but what the heck, I'm behind too. I haven't yet stacked the wood we split in the Spring. Every time I pass that wood stack it looks the same. Guess if I don't stack it then the job won't get done.

    Splitting-2013c.JPG Yup. Still there this morning too. Perhaps I'll get at it soon.

    Miss his great pictures & work ethic.

    +1 "He's a good man"

    Maybe it'll cool down for you soon, into the 50 or 60s . Better working temps :)

    I've been wanting to go cut some but been to warm ,
    learned patience & it's more enjoyable when it's cool outside ;)
    It can wait a few months.

    Dave, it is nice and cool right now. In fact, I just closed some of the windows. Nice that we don't need air conditioning in July.

    Thanks for the update Dennis. I was hoping he was well and that things worked out for him.

    Hurrah . . . Quads is one of those quality guys that I think I would love to meet in person one day as I suspect who he is on line is the same person he is in person . . . i.e. a straight shooting, honest man.

    Sometimes, it's rare but if you stare at it long enough, it will stack itself.

    For sure it is rare Pauly. I went back there again just a short time ago. Nothing had been done. So, I pitched in and stacked one row 4 1/2' high and 10' long. That was enough for today, or at least my back said so. When I passed my wife on the way back up I told her to hurry. lol She is picking raspberries. Well, I actually told her when she is finished to not bring the berries and water and such to the house. I'll go back and get it with the atv.

    I wish we lived closer to quads. It would be fun to get a group together and go to his place to help him get ahead on his wood piles again. That would be a fun day indeed.

    Funny you brought up quads, Dennis.
    I was just thinking of him a couple days ago. I have his youtube site saved.
    It would be nice to have him back.

    IIRC family farms sold and such requiring him to change complete life style?

    Yes he was forced to change some. Isn't that just like life? Change seems to be the only constant.
