Get you a 3 pack of walmart safety yellow T shirts with the pocket.  2 sizes bigger than normal.  Cut the sleeves so that theyre still long enough to cover your shoulder joints but are slit way down below the arms.  This will give a big vent up the belly area and keep your arm pits more comfortable.  

Now go to tractor supply or the co-op and buy a cheap straw cowboy hat.  Gotta be straw.  Poke your finger through the top in one or two place for vents and stick a pair of stacked paper towels inside, tucked up under the sweat band to stay in place, also with some poked holes.  

Now youre a redneck, go work in sun.


The dirt was 90 in the shade yesterday and 104 in the sun.  A steel plate was 133.

Mike,

   You forgot to mention the bib overalls open on the sides and fastened with only one strap and his brogan shoes with no socks.

I have 3 straw hats which I grab the closest one in the morning before heading to the mill
Only wear them when moving logs and lumber in the yard along with sun glasses.
Today was only 89 so not too bad but I took my shirt off and let the sawdust settle on my body.
Glad nobody was there to see me naked from the waist up as my body has failed me as well as some of  my mind.
Also glad I got to the house with the sawdust on me before my wonderful missus got home.

Goat, I don't know if you ever watched the sitcom "Seinfeld", there was a character named Kramer who had a similar habit to your fridge t-shirts, except the opposite end of the temperature spectrum. He liked his pants fresh out of the dryer, and then at one point ended up with them in a pizza oven because he got addicted to his "hot pants" and needed a quick fix😂😂

We only reached 76 here today, with a nice breeze coming out of the North!

Sawed around 40 Red Pine logs today for 1722 bf!

Hadn't done any sawing for the last four days or so, wasn't about to in that 96 weather!

Did firewood on Friday after the rain had a nice breeze  :)
Milled this morning and waited on customers. It was a beautiful morning.
I close at noon on Saturdays the wife needs some peace.
I will go out in the pit and work on firewood orders.

Had a customer bring logs over Wednesday - temp was high 90s with 90% humidity. My MANUAL LT15 is inside a metal building and even with both overhead doors open it was HOT.  Took only about 2 hours but Im ready to wait for cooler weather.  

Have logs waiting to be cut and split for firewood but thankfully this years is already put away.  

Im getting too old to fight the heat.
