    That's tough, Stephen. People say that losing a child is the worst thing. Hope that things mend themselves asap.

    Sure sorry about all that Stephen.

    .Ha! that is true. In Minecraft that is called "dual wielding"...a badass fighting technique. Used to slay big A$$ dragons and creepers.

    Or, in Stephen's case, a nasty crispy oak.

    I just added the larger saw once I got the little stuff cut. Then dropped the smaller after it was lifted out. Only had to sport two for 1/2 hour or some such.

    Thanks for the thoughts and such. Tree work helps me keep focus. Time around the house is what kills the spirit.. And trucks breaking.. Or bills piling up.... You know the drill... Waiting on a call about my dad tonight. Two nights so far in the hospital, they did not like his white cell count.

    Hey Jim......
    Congrats mang.
    Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.

    Well done, Seth! Very impressive and cool to see when young people can be focused like that.

    Ran out of fuel in the new truck today leaving the job. Having multiple trucks is hard. With one truck I could tell you on any day about how much fuel was in it, but with two I can't keep track and I'm obviously not smart enough to look at the gauge.

    Anyway, the truck died and I pulled off the road. Called my ground guy since he was only a couple minutes behind me, he picked me up and carried me home to get my diesel can. Got back and it still took me almost 30 minutes to get it started again. I kept priming and priming but it wouldn't pressurize. I finally cracked the fuel line and cranked the engine over to get fuel through the line, then tightened it up and pumped the primer some more. After 3-4 false starts it finally ran.

    Remind me not to run a diesel out of fuel again, it sucks.

    Yeah, some are worse than others. Nozzles seem to be harder to prime than unit injectors.
    Winter is coming.

    The old Volkswagen bugs used to have a supplementary fuel tank, a lever between the front seats opened it up. Very helpful at times, and when you were running off the spare tank, a gas station was the priority. My brother had a bug until he flipped it over on the freeway, unhurt though.
