Monday was cold at first but eventually turned into a nice sunny day.
While at Lexington the other day, I found a tooth setter at the antique mall and tried it out today. It slightly bends the teeth on large saws so that they cut a wider groove and don't bind up.
It works on the buck saw but seems to be made for the thicker two man style of blade.
I took both saws over across the creek and cut a wheelbarrow load of mimosa.
Cloudy today and they keep saying it will rain but the clouds are high so I got in the truck to go cut a load of wood only to find the battery was dead. So I put the battery on the charger and loaded up the logging wheelbarrow and went up on the hill at the cemetery to work on this tangled mess where a limb fell.
There are grave stones laying all around and at one point I thought that I smelled tobacco burning and turned around but saw nobody not even a ghost. I guess it was the cherry tree sawdust on the hot saw.
The calves and Dusty amused themselves by watching me work. I finally got the limb pulled to the ground and cut up. I am in town to pick up Carrie and take her to an orthodontist checkup. Supposed to be 3 inches of snow tomorrow and all the kids have ruled out any chance of going to school.
