    It's nice seeing Murph & Emma both with you, I hear the elm is a tough splitter.

    some 12/13 and beyond gathering:

    this week i cut a good sized ice-fall hickory limb....been down since last winter. probably a face cord.
    yesterday dropped a 3 year standing dead red oak probably over a cord for that one. gonna c/s/s/ that one in the next week or so.
    gonna c/s/s s%&tload; of downed red maple. my goal is to have a big store of it to use for shoulder season. even considering c/s/s pine for the same. what a luxury it will be to have seasoned early-wood for once and not tap into the primo hardwoods.
    gonna hit the logging yard for some BIG rounds...mostly red oak, sugar maple, cherry and ash. those a re gonna go in the big pile and get split and stacked whenever i can get to them. i tend to hoard the stuff from the logging yard when possible cuz if not the vultures come in with monster trucks and take all the cut-offs. that leaves so little for the locals to rely on. anyway...i'm grateful to have them so close.

    I am really sorry to hear that . I have had to make that decision before and it's never an easy one. Hope it gets better soon.

    Hows Emma? when I lost my dog last year her sister was ok for a few days, she liked the extra attention. Once she realized her mate was never coming back she stopped eating for a week or so and was depressed. I ended up getting her a new mate and shes been much happier since.

    I think I can speak for many of us in saying 1) we're sorry for your loss and 2) we too will miss the comical pics of Murphy . . . and 3) please don't stop posting pics of Emma clowning around if and when you feel like doing so. The pics you posted of those two dogs working with you really made my day -- I always perked up whenever I saw that you had updated this thread with new pics.
