    Okay sports fans,ring side with Al Smith vs hickory tree . It rained again but I did get the 100 year old snatch block fixed .It had a hook that must have came off a 20 ton crane and hand forged shackles .Off came the hook just left the shackle.Now I can lift that heavy rascal . .It's double shackle deal I can use for the head block .With a three part line I might get it this time .Monday probably as my lady friend is coming for the week end and that damned tree is just going to have to wait .

    I've a feeling that there's a beer can in the picture when all is said and done.
