    Hey Boys,....:brow

    We have been having a bit of a rough patch here......:bluduh.....:yikes......:cry

    First, it was the 50-year snow storm wet and heavy that took out 1/2 the tress in NorCal to the point that you could not find a jug of bar oil or chain in the whole town.....:fpalm
    No power for 6 days...:becca

    I lost about 5 or 6 trees and lots of tops broke off so I have been digging out of that Stupid stuff for weeks.... :pep

    This is the bro laws house down the road ....LOTS of this kind of stuff.....:baldy

    Your imagination.
    Good thoughts to your parents.

    Bummer about the weather and the damage, but it's really nice to know that you're okay.


    Thanks for the update.

    Been away from the site for a few days. The Rock of WaylongWaybralta is in distress. You , MRS. WLW, Momma WLW and Pappa WLW are in my prayers. Will ATF work as bar oil? Wood cutting blades on reciprocating saw works great.

    What they all said....Wacko storm hit us some years back, 12 trees down in my driveway....I was out till 3 A.M cutting my way out....Then found out the only road to town had the same issues....Power out for 11 days, made us decide on getting two back-up gennies, or not live in a sweet place year round..
    Oh, I was trying to get out for a colonoscopy in Seattle 200 miles away...Darn!
    Take care...........

    First off , I would like to say THANK YOU for all the kind words and well-wishers....! :kumbaya

    Mom is still in the rehabilitation place but may get to come home in 3 days..? :twitch It seems she had a bladder infection that she somewhat ignored....(Tuff bird)

    Turns out she had 2 kidney stones that were blocking off her kidney and a kidney infection and a bladder infection and a blood infection...:eek7:eek7:eek7 somehow that turned into an
    e-Coli infection....:grim not sure how that works but it took her down to nothing and she still has a hard time breathing w/out oxygen......:kurt



    So let that be a warning to all meathooks to not blow it off when you start peeing mud..... :baldy



    As for Some ASSEMBLY REQUIRED.......:dirtdog

    I have a ton of pics (56) of my new (STUPID!!) project that I have been working on for the past few weeks ....:bash And I mean STUPID....:bueller

    I will try to put something together tomorrow for all you folks that are NOT too smart....:stupid

    :scratch......
