    This morning I was telling my wife that some of the tarps on the wood stacks needed straightening up, mentioned that one of the ends had blown off then froze in the ground and that I would take care of it this afternoon.

    After a bit, the boss said I think we need a woodshed, more milling. The worst part is the area we would build it has five cord stacked that would need to be moved before the build.

    I agree Pete, the boss is always right. We will look at some designs tonight (after sharpening some chains) then take some measurements this weekend in the two spots I think it should go.

    Hmmph! New wood shed...and lets not forget about that new cabin you wanted to build....
    I've been a thinkin-since I'm laid off, and you don't have snow, and you have at least two projects going on this year, and it'll be awhile before I can start on my projects.....

    Can't do both projects this year so we will see, I actually would like a storage shed first.

    Gamma, does that hold true for the hubby too?

    I am willing to bet that you don't want to hear the 9 or 10 versions that just ran through my head. :red:

    I beleive the little diddy goes something like this:

    "Who the hell cares?"

    It might rhyme with that, I'm really not sure.

    I'm thinking of the Manhattan natives getting duped for $24 worth of beads. Only in our case, we are trading thousands of dollars of baubles for a few square inches of prime "real estate". %-P

    That depends. If the wife feels like it at the time. Yes. If not, no. Very simple.
