On a way lighter note, yesterday was a surprisingly nice sunny day. I put outside my two wet throwlines in their buckets to dry. But I forgot to bring them back in the van. This night and today aren't sunny at all (it's often the case for the night, but you get what I mean) and the throwlines actually take a bath now.
It was raining, so I spent the day in the office. Didn't get much done today. Took my brushcutter out in the afternoon, but I'm running out of stuff to cut. I want to leave some of the property wild for the critters, but haven't fully formed a plan yet. I think I'll start doing some "fine" cutting behind the house, and make some trails. A whole lot of white pine has come down. I'm thinking of ripping it in quarters or eighths, and making lined paths. That'll add some visual interest, and make it a bit easier to track down vines in the spring.
There's some pines next to office I was considering removing the dead stuff in, but the service lines to the office go through them. I'm thinking that's something I probably shouldn't take on right now. I keep going out to look at them, start forming a plan, then seeing something that screws up my plan. Probably let the branches do what they want. It isn't really my problem.
I spent several hours rigging out two major sized widowmakers hung up over my workshop, storage shed, and carport. High winds last night. Big azz Douglas fir limbs. Did it all from the ground; 2 throw lines, BigShot, 4 rigging ropes. All wood now on the ground, all safe again. Jag back in the carport .
They call it a Filao. The beaches are luned with them and they keep planting more to help control erosion. After seeing all these palm trees, I would like to learn how to climb them. I did not see many spur related scars on the ones that look maintained and free of coconuts.
How do you greet someone who is dying? Everyone who knows me here or IRL ALWAYS greets me with a "How ya doing?" which is OK, then ALWAYS say "How ya feeling?" That's the one I friggin hate. They definitely don't wanna hear the truth on that! And I hear it 3 ten times a day and it depresses to no end!
I understand its a hard question to answer... Anyone have any thoughts?
Real hard question to answer Butch. I just stick with Hello. I know being that sick some people just want to live their last days as normal as possible. My neighbor lost his wife to cancer suddenly like Dr.'s visit and three days later she was gone. He told me that he was not looking forward to the visitation line. He didn't want to hear the usual "I'm sorry for your loss" stuff so I said OK I won't say that so I said chicken salad sandwich, he laughed.
