    I havent been able to pull that one off yet. You must have either a very understanding wife or you did something very special for her.

    It's the new craze instead of oak barrel aged beer it's black lager aged oak ! Smells good and you can put the ashes in water an drink the beer afterwords !

    Your wife says it's time to trim the Christmas tree, and you go in search of your axe.

    When the wife wants to go Christmas Tree shopping, you take your Husqvarna T435 to do the cutting, 'cuz it's "just a little saw."

    You're not looking for aluminium cans anymore. Just was that red oak? or wow I think that was black locust with no bark.
