Yeah Bruno, but I'm still confused. What happened to your shorts and why did they leave in a woman's SUV (apparently along with some lumber), or didn't they?

Are his shorts loose or did he lose them?  There is a difference.  ;)

 I started cutting the 133 board into 78 and 57 but then I realized Id have an un-even stack which wouldnt support the next logs boards.

  So I divided the length into 3 and cut at the 2/3 length that gave full length and half lengths which stacked into an even pile.  

The boards I cut first to the odd length kept the pile uneven on top.   Live and learn.
