Me? I won? Wow :o.

Thanks to Logrite: for providing the prize, for being a Forestry Forum sponsor, for making great products, and for providing outstanding customer service :).

Thanks to Jeff: for running the best forum on the web, for putting up with all of us, and for another great challenging diabolical contest :D

Thanks to everyone on the Forum: if it weren't for all of you, I wouldn't have been here to enter the contest ;D.

Mind you, I think I earned it. I hate word puzzles like that. I'm terrible at them.

This time I thought I'd be smart and use the computer to help me. Cut & paste the diagram into Excel. Reverse all the lines so all the backwards words jump out at me. Then make all the vertical lines horizontal, and reverse them. More words jump out. Then turn the diagonals into horizontal lines and ... wait how the heck do you do that? And even if I can pull it off, how am I going to figure out where the word started anyway?

In the end it was "easier" to just go hunting for the words. Fortunately I have a stubborn streak or I would never have hung in there.

I hope everyone had a great Christmas.

jueston,your jam and jelly went out this morning. You may get it Friday.Between the wife and I,we gave all of the blueberry away. I replaced it with a strawberry,sorry.    :embarassed:  We only had 3 jars and she thought she had some more.

the package did arrive on friday, at first i didn't remember that this package was coming and i was concerned, the package was a little beaten up, the hand writing was a little sloppy, and it had a fragile stamp on it, in the army they told us those were the signs that the box might be a bomb or anthrax attack...  :D

but after opening i found it was not a bomb [i don't know if it had anthrax in it, since i have the vaccine]

but seriously, its delicious the love of my life and i have both enjoyed it very much, thanks for sending it out so fast  :)

Drat, snubbed again :'(

Danny and I wood appreciate it if next year's contest involves the identification and recitation (from memory) of the scientific names of multiple obscure woody plants native to the Southeastern United States. That ought to narrow down the field a bit ;D

Just kidding, congrats to the winners and many thanks to Jeff and to all who donated gifts to make the contest possible. Happy belated New Year! :)

I would think that it would be quite a job just making up the "search-a-word".

One month later ...

I promised Tammy I'd post a picture of my new cant hook when it got here (not it didn't take THAT long). The thing is, when you ship stuff to Canada, even gifts, you have to watch out for brokerage charges. Everything that crosses the border has to be brokered across. The big couriers usually provide this service automatically -- and charge you a bunch for doing it >:(. They don't bother to mention this to the shipper, because technically it's the receiver who is importing the goods. On the other hand, if you send the article by mail, Canada Posts charges a very nominal fee for brokerage services and the USPS will usually warn the sender in advance.

Fortunately Tammy already knew this and was planning to mail my cant hook anyway. I told her not to rush, as all I could do with it right now is measure how much snow is beside my mill ;D. The prize arrived several weeks ago but I didn't manage to get out to the milling site until late last week.

Here's my new cant hook, alongside it's smaller and much older brother.



And here's how deep the snow was last week (both cant hooks are in this picture, too ;D ).



That's the sawmill behind the two cant hooks (you can see the mast over on the left). This is actually a pretty mild winter so far. A few heavy snowfalls, and then weeks of no precipitation at all. The skiiers alternate between joy and depression.
