Sonofagun. That little chainsaw works pretty slick. I imagine having a sharp blade is key.

I always kept a little chain file with my chain saw. It was easy enough to quickly take a run around the chain and give the teeth a quick touch up. Also an excuse to take a breather and make the second half of the job easier.

After I waited impatiently by the door all morning, my new iPad finally arrived! I'm downloading all my apps from iTunes. So excited, I had the original, and this new Air is supposed to be so much faster. Can't wait to start playing!

And I'm hoping to get to the greenhouse before everything gets picked over by Mothers Day, but it will be hard to tear myself away from my new toy!

Me too! Unfortunately, I still have a severe case of lazies and I don't cares.

When I got up this morning I was cold, so I switched out the top I had set aside for my lightest weight sweatshirt. Now I'm too warm. I guess instead of heading outside to work in the garden I'll just grab the tool tote and head to the basement to clean and oil tools. You know, that stuff that should have been done in October. Or November. Or......

I have a chainsaw file in with my gunsmithing tools. I've seen some pretty elaborate set ups, too. Touching up the blade would be something I could do in my one hour downtime if I ever use the battery up and need to recharge it.
This thing is so light I can pull the branch down and hold it with one hand so I can cut higher up. Next phase I'll have to break out the ladder.

Dawg, you got your iPad, I got my Taichi back! Nothing is going to keep us down now!

Laurie, I have had a chronic cough for 15 years. It started once when I got a cold and never stopped completely. I have been to several doctors about it, including an Ear Nose and Throat specialist and I have had a scope done which diagnosed a hiatal hernia. That doctor told me by the time I was done with the rx for Nexium the cough would be gone. He lied. The only time this cough has gone away was when I was put on Darvocet after minor surgery. This happened twice. It went away for 2-3 months then gradually came back. No other pain med has ever had this effect. Now Darvocet has been taken off the market. There must have been some ingredient in it that supressed the cough. I am so used to it I don't usually notice it, but everyone else does. I am very annoying! LOL DH throws cough drops at me from across the room.

Spent the morning with my grandson, my daughter called at 7 this morning saying he had a cough and she didn't want to take him to preschool. So he stayed with me from 7 - 1 while she went to work. He perked up a little after he got to my house, and we played quiet games and read most of the time. We both took naps from 12-1.

Forgot to add, now I'm getting started on the Spanish rice and prep work for tonight's dinner. Hoping to still have dinner around 5, but might be later. Lots to do!
