I want to thank everybody for the kind words.  Mother said to thank yall too cause I told her what yall said.  When she fell my heart bout stopped, but my body kept movin.  I guess one good thing is hard headed kinda runs in the family. Right now she's gone to town!  Said she had to get out and work out some of that soreness!  Recon I'm gonna strive to be just as durn stubborn as she is when I get that old.  If I make it that is.  I got up this morning and fixed that hole.  I didn't get the bridge built. But I did drag some 6/6 timbers up there and floor it with plywood temperary.  Saw a picture of a bridge over on the timber framin forum, a rough picture of an arched bridge.  That's what I'm going to build when I have time. Havn't yet figgured out what I'm gonna use for the arches though.

I wish I did!  One thing I did do one time.  I was, oh about 9 or 10, I'd heard about a tree somewhere growed in a knot.  Hadn't ever seen one so I decided to grow me one.  Went out in the woods, found me a little tree, and tied it in a knot.  Harder to do than you'd think.  Only grew about three years before it died.  I guess it choked itself to death.  If I had enough time I'd pull me a couple in a arch and let em grow awhile!

Just a suggestion but maybe this thread could be stuck at the top so when ever someone has a 'Problem" we could post it here.....its been a great read so far ;D ;D

Yeah, she's pretty tough.  Told her one time when they got this cloning down pat I was gonna have myself cloned so they would be two of me.  Like to took my DanG head off.  Said she was SO happy I wasn't twins.

Florida, ya have had me looking at crooked trees all day.  Near bouts got my neck kinked from twistin around and looking while drivin down the road.  Wife's been yellin at me all day, "Watch where you're goin".  If ya did have a crooked tree, how in the world would you shape it out so you had a pair of them that matched.  Or, is there a easier idea?

Glad your Mom is OK CK. My wife's Mom tried the same thing this summer but only about a third as far, she's 80. I have been making decks, slowly stepping down to the drive so that when need be I can make small ramps to get her into the house. Anyway, she comes out to do the ooh ahh and walks right off the end, hits the rider and got generally banged. We begged her to let us take her to the ER, you can tell Dutch but you can't tell 'em much :D, she was up and around a coupla days later.

Have any of you tried the garden hose skinner? Same way, small slit insert and inflate...the first water balloon coon?
I tried it on a deer but it didn't seem any easier than just takin its coat off :-/.

Down here, they knock the hide off of the squeezin fruit, with water. Small nozzles penetrate the hide and squirt water underneath it. Falls right off without bruisin the fruit ;D

Ed, it's not too late to send a letter to Santa asking for a new truck. You'll have ta send it Fed-Ex Next Day Air, though. Fortunately, Jeff-B is picking up all the Fed-Ex tabs with his credit card. Just another example of the man's unending generosity to ForestryForum members. ;D

I got a few old Fords around, hard to find parts for. specialy the coil boxes that the wood is still good on, and the comensers are hard on them new fangled battery things, still like the mags better,  then the water pumps on the newer ones, Two of um  behind the fan, and use them for motor mounts, not a better Idea, and the distriburator behind the fan also? goodness, but that Stromberg 97 what a carb, like that, and this newer Ford has a  Automatic trans in it, they call it a FordMatic, really a borg warner, but a good radio,  lets see ifin I keep this 1951 Ford Victoria for 50yrs I might get it paid for,  $ 1485.00---  buts it's a V8----- that will be 2001. then it's mine.    well good news guys,  ITS MINE, clean title, ain't ya proud of me??? said I couldn't do it, guess I showed ya.  Duh.  Duane ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D  1923  T roadster, 1940 coupe Deluxe, 1951 Victoria, 1954 F100. 1923 T bucket

 :D :D :D Duane, what ever you said, well it sure made me laugh, and to tell ya the truth, thanks, I needed that.  Either way, the worst thing I hate about an old chevy is you have to keep a couple of cases of oil in the back at all times.  I killed a few of em afore I wised up.  Now I got nothin against a dodge, they's good ole trucks.  But ya take a chevy, let er run low on oil and well, ya done killed er dead.  Let an ole ford run low on oil, and it'll flat tell ya from the valves chattering that ya need to restock the ole crankcase.  I like me a vechicle that don't mind talkin back to me druther than just rollin over and playin dead. Now I've got me one of them new fangled f250 diesels.  Mostly just kinda dropped in my lap a few years ago.  Best powerstroke of luck I've practially done ever had me in my whole dad gum life.  I could tell ya how it happened, but it'd probably make ya cry. 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)
