    Sorry no pictures but I had to get out and do something today. I remembered a couple of soft maples that I had down and I want to make kindling from them. So, I loaded up the chain, the saw and cant hook and skidded the logs out. Didn't even use the dray because with the snow we have they skidded nicely and didn't get full of dirt. I'll buck them up when the snow disappears which we hope is real soon.

    Must be talking about your lunchtime nap dream? I mean, even though you warned us, I don't see pictures... didn't happen...

    Ya, I thought about it while I was skidding the logs out. You'll just have to use your imagination for this one. ;)

    Did it ease your mine some? This is the first year that we hardly used any kindling, had just under one face cord, still have it.

    In my imagination the Swedish bikini team was riding the log out while Dennis was shooting his 6 shot revolver into the air. I'm not sure where the submarine came from.

    I see no mention of the ATV. I can only assume Dennis yoke'd up and drug them out himself.

    This whole thread made me laugh. Jags just finished off. I imagine Jake will be along shortly.
