Whacked a tree down with dad today. Used the john deere for guidance.



And that stupid husky fell over. Ruined my whole day. I went in and cried.

There's a loooong story behind that tractor :D

And I thought that thing I cut down was only a big limb stuck in the ground... LOL

The tree had more weight to the left than I anticipated, missed the center of the tractor by a foot :(

Nope, everyone opts for the $10 XP tissues because they're cheaper and don't mind a good cry every once in a while.

I forget, why don't we like our saws laying on their side? I thought Stihl guys would like it, can't leak from the caps when they're on their side :jerkoff::stirthepot:

Still haven't got the vid transferred yet. I'll try to do that today at some point. It cracks me up. Novice saw operating at its finest.

I spent two hours the other day trying to get the vid from dads phone to mine and for the life of me I couldn't get it. Email/text resulted in terrible resolution reduction and a drag and drop on the computer just wouldn't go. Anybody know how to get a 215mb .mov off one iPhone and onto another?
