Those are some nice logs you got there, but the real keeper is that beautiful 4 year old. ;) Gosh they grow up fast, so treasure the young years with them.

Thank you guys for appreciating the pics of my daughter..I have 2 boys also 7 & 9 I'll throw some more pics up..I know this is a logging forum but she is on a stump!! Its just that theyre in school all day, and shes back playin lumberjack!
Coxy, the stump is an Aspen with a hole in the center..I figured someone would mention the spears stickin up...I had to leave some extra holding wood on that side to coax it over that direction.
The tree is indeed a cherry.I have a little sand ground on the west side of property with a little scrubby junk cherry. And then clay loam soils on the rest with big aspen and red oak.Some white oak and soft maple and some Old white pine left behind from the 1880,s and in the middle of it all I find this ONE cherry!!
Its nice,hard to take a pic of its @ 18 inches across..not big but veneer for @ 4o feet,a little bump and ten more feet of veneer...fifty feet to a branch and straight as an arrow,no visible taper either.
This is literally the ONLY cherry at ALL..of any quality..I know the land adjoining me too...funything is on 400 acres I have exactly 1 Beech also.I lived here all my life again,more beech the north aways but a mile or so..
Its nothing great a foot diameter and tall..My land is a square mile missing NW and SE corners..I know whats in them ..and around it and over a square mile with 1 cherry and 1beech.

Yep. I see who the boss on that job is now. Enjoy them while they are young.

When my daughter was about that age she wanted me to take her deer hunting with me. Went one morning while she was still in bed and came back in around 10:30 wearing camo. She looked at me and said "you went hunting without me". That evening I was almost out the door in camo when she saw me and cried wanting to go.

Bundled her up and took her. She had a little blue toy rifle she took. We went out and set on a log and I put my muzzleloader in front or us leaning on a tree. She did the same with her little blue gun. She was super quite and much to my suprise a 6 point came right up on us. When I easied to get my gun she did the same to get her toy gun. Harvested the six point with her and it is a memory I will never forget.

Another time when she was older I took her and we were in a buddy stand. Along comes a spike right under us and I was going to let it go. She is whispering shoot it dad. Shoot it. I did but when the field dressing started she went to the truck. But she will eat every bite of venision you fix for her.
Give me a new saw chain and I can find you a rock in a heartbeat.

She has a brother that is 8 years older than him. Used to take them bluegill fishing all the time. From the day she could hold a pole she would out fish him every time. And boy did she rub it in on big brother. Ha. She is 16 now and cares nothing about getting a drivers liscense. Her brother is 24 and is a VA. State Police. He applied along with a thousand others. No political pull but he was one of the 100 accepted and 90 that graduated. Yes. Dad is proud.
