Steveio The Lumberjack – Saturday Project
We had a pretty nice elm tree that we planted about 10 years ago, in the front yard that died this past summer... and the woodpeckers were making a huge mess of it, stripping the bark off to get to the inside where the bugs are. It was rotting out pretty bad.
Steve put in one cut with the chain saw and able to PUSH the tree over.
Better to get it down in the direction AWAY from the house than towards itWhat a strong guy!
We even got a HE-MAN grunt grunt flex pose outta him too! LOL
Added in March 2009.... We added it the birdfeeder to the stump and filled it up. In no time a little chickadee came to check it out. How cute is that?
We sold our log home in the woods in 2012, and moved to the tiny community of Chilton, Wisconsin. We are happily married, and now grandparents of seven lovely little people. Jameson, Allegra, Chelsea, Mason, Clayton, Whitney and Claire! Our grown children are an important part of our lives, and they are now bringing children of their own into the world. What a wonderful treat that Grandchildren are!!!
We love to travel in our 38ft Safari Serengeti diesel pusher motohome, with our two Shetland Sheepdogs, Binney and Finnegan guiding our way. The motorhome really belongs to the dogs, we are just allowed to drive it places so they can get out and sniff!
We mostly boondock, utilizing our on board systems and solar panels on the roof. We don't need "No Stinkin' Hook-ups" We prefer to not be jammed in row after row of canned sardine tins like some campgrounds offer.
While on the road, I create my handwoven and knitted items. I am a weaver, spinner, and knitter of socks with an antique sockknitting machine. I sell my items online at www.kareninthewoods.com or in my Etsy store. http://kareninthewoods.etsy.com/
