Visit to Poston Widehead's Place
« on: May 14, 2019, 10:16:16 PM »
Had a chance today to visit a few minutes.  David gave me a tour, through the mill building and mantel show room.  I even got to help Kirt stack some walnut slabs off the mill.  The place is as busy with folks coming and going. 

 
Me and David (and Kirt working)


 
Kirt running the new LT 40 Diesel Wide head while David meets customers or gets another log



I went in anyway

   He must have put that sign up since I was there last year. Maybe I should be offended.  :D Sounds typical with Dave politicing and Kirk working. Thanks for posting.

  Pretty sure my Brother In-Law put a sign up at the farm the goes something like this: "This is a working Dairy Farm.  Please Use Common Sense".  It made me laugh. A lot!

It was too late for dinner and too early for supper.  I 'm sure he had something good in the Mill refrigerator other than Spook's cat food.
