Lenn,
I can almost guarantee nobody is upset with you, buddy.
You are a primo hombre.
Now, Jack and me, on the other hand....... :D

Oh, hey Jack, nice handle buddy.

Man, I been working here in the house all day. Putting wainscoting in the entryway. Got one wall left with only one outlet to cut around. Then I have to notch and relieve all the woodwork to fit over it.
Tomorrow......I'm done tonight.

Your new old axe reminds me of an axe a buddy of mine found in Quebec, lost on the edge of a lake was the remains of a trappers cabin and buried unders all kinds of logs and junk was this ax, the handle just about balsa from rot. It is a fixture in his house as a reminder of what came before.

Colds are the worst. One of the reasons I do my best to stay away from sick people, no restaurants, movie theaters and the like.
Get well soon Griff!

In other news, Claro the brown wonder did her usual stellar job today. She had 11 flushes this morning. I took 3 shots and got 3 birds. Man the guys I hunt with CANT shoot for beans...

Good shootin Gunny, :D .......whew! 1:30. You guys have already completed most of the day and I'm just getting started. Guess I'm gettin' like the bros......friends of mine who have spent time in the big house all tell me the bros sleep all day and are up hollering all night. Probably explains why they like second shift at the plant and the ones who did work day shift used to sleep on their break. A few, who were good friends of mine....and have been in my gunroom......not many people get to do that.......told me they become awake at night. Oh well.


What's happening? Where's Pitchy? He can't be serious about being pizzed off. I thought he was putting some drama in the show......for ratings. :D

Well, Griff is sick. On to life's experiences on that. I can't remember the last time I had a cold or flu. I've been sick and dizzy from my ear damage but not from a virus. EASY explaination...you ever see a farmer sick? They do their life healthy, then drop dead. Animals are the reason.

We have lots of animals here at Sixgun Land....I married the farmers daughter and she made sure we have plenty of dogs, cats, horses, ...we had chickens, guinea pigs, turtles, crayfish, fish, and my BIL next door even had a pet deer. Being around animals will build your immune system up real nice.

Well, I'm off to see the wizard, the wonderful wizard of Oz-----6. :D

You know, sometimes I do stupid stuff...like turning old axes into works of art...well, it's art to me.

From the left....my favorite splitting maul....used continually from 1984-2014 when I finally broke down and bought a gas wood splitter. 30 years and 4 cords a wood per year equates to 120 cords of wood split with this maul. After the new handle and other protective additions, I decided to retire it.

Next..I don't know the history but it's definitely late 1800's.....quality steel but not too quality...my dad used to collect old hammers, hatchets, hammers, etc and I have them all here...must be 30 of them.

Next....an old firemans axe, stamped "MANN" and underneath that, "Lewistown, Pa." I painted it orange. I'm guessing early 1900's.

Last is the best...handed down through the family and yes, I'm usually the recipient of old stuff from the family. I have my grandfather's gold Elgin watch and other things from when he came over on the boat from Sicily, old guns...whatever.
As the legend goes, a great, great,great uncle on my dad's side was the chief executioner in a small town in Italy..dunno....sounds like b.s. to me...I'd like to hear your thoughts on this axe.....but, this axe is old and is heavily pitted. My dad put on a new handle....did not have a handle when my dad got it..... and painted it.------6

That's an interesting link doc, thanks for sharing it!

Well after bird hunting I got home and the neighbor called to tell me she was back in the hospital. So I gotta watch the house. Figured I'd go blow leaves... I HATE leaves ( I might have mentioned this before) . I had a pile so big I couldn't move it with the walk behind blower. Then I took the lawn tractor jacked up one side of it and flipped on the mower deck, parked the walk behind blower so it would blow under the deck then I was pushing leaves with my legs and backpack blower. Boy talk about a hillbilly setup but it worked! I spent about 3 hours doing leaves. I hate leaves...

Ha! Should have taken a pic of that Gunny....a Polaris powered snow plow on leaves. Yep..you are a true redneck...people who can make use of something that was never designed for.

That N.M. Is scary accurate.....I really don't think it had more than a couple of boxes of ammo out of it...before I got it. It's one of the first NM, made in '53 with everything correct. I still baby it though, mostly with cast gas checked bullets two or three times a year.

One day a few years back I had it at the gunclub and a buddy asked me how accurate it was...I put in a 8 rounder loaded with 150 Hornadys with a dose of 4895, dialed in the sights and put 8 shots in the middle of the 300 meter pig.

What's it with Pitchy? Is he really pizzed off? Why? He could be feeling bad with that nasty cold weather he is having.i could not imagine what 7 degrees feel like...in November!----6

I dunno...

I've been using a plow for leaves for a long time. Blow till they get so packed together then push the pile away, repeat. I tell ya it's a good thing I dont own a dozer!!!
I've been looking at snowblowers that go on the front of my Ranger. Just cant see spending 5 or 6 grand for one...I'd have to start charging the neighbors for plowing!
I dont ask for anything, sometimes they pay sometimes I get bottles or cookies or gift cards. Heck one neighbor gave my a post 64 model 70 .308 one year for plowing!

Can I sneak one in here? Snowing here in what used to be Indian Territory after being 14 Saturday morning while I was heading to Tulsa for the big gun show. I'll try to take a few pics and post a report later. I've been adopted by a Blood Hound. Stray just showed up last week sometime and he's just a pup, maybe 8 or 9 months. I'm sure some hunters lost him but I haven't had any luck trying to find his owners so I'll just feed him and let him sleep in one of our dog house igloos. Gotta go take those pics.

Sure M.M....Pitchy started this post but anybody can chime in. This is what you call a "happy post" where we talk mindless entertainment. A stray dog? That sucks....you wonder who is lost more, the dog or the owner. :( hope it works out...for both.

Well, just came back from the Doc's....I let him know what too much meds do to your emotional and physical wellbeing. I told him that after dropping three mindless drugs, I'm back to what I was in my fifties........ready to take on the world...felt strong enough to punch a hole in the wall behind me. He laughed and told me, "OK, your in charge..but please.....have a colonoscopy."

I told him I never liked anything in my colon that's not supposed to be there as is directed by the Lord....but maybe I'll make an exception on this.

Sure is nice with the show still on......this show ain't nothing without Pitchy. :D ----6

I thought the show was over so I deleted the pics to save bandwidth. Continue on..........

Well Pitchy...ya know, one thing I can't deal with is a parasite and the BAR man is a parasite!

What the hell does he do to earn a warm place to sit every night? NOTHING! So......today, I put him to work. There! He is earning his keep!



First, I had him do some saw work.

Image

Then, as a lookout.

Image

Image

Bailing some hay...made him do the stacking!

Image

Some push mower work

Image

Some tractor work

Image


Took the Jeep for an oil change

Image


And finally, after all that work, he took a snooze

Wow, that BAR man is busy. And here I been complaining about a little finish carpentry. :D
And......he has to run a chainsaw while carrying BAR! I know some guys like that up in Athens.
Ole Pitchy make em tough!

M.M,
We used to find bear and rabbit dogs now and then at camp. Owners would forget to turn on their collar before letting them go. We always found the owners eventually. Those pups were always glad to see us. It was some big woods up there.

Lenn I've been doing finish carpentry for 35 years or so , some furniture building too. Mortise & tenon is quite easy, it's just a matter of lay out then lay out and lay out before any cuts are made. Granted on a much smaller scale! Doing a job of this size I brought in a buddy of mine that used to build timber frame homes. He has the experience and he doesnt mind doing the high wire stuff. So I get to do all the layout and cutting. It's been a learning experience for me and I'm lovin every minute of it!
I'll get more pics tomorrow if the rain holds off...snow Thursday.
We have 2 pieces ready to install tomorrow, then 2 others after that and it's done.
Here is what we are trying to recreate.
20180903_075218-600x800.jpg
The king stud is top center. The 2 pieces L/ R of king stud need to have mortises cut in the morning. Then the 2 angle pieces under the beam are next.

Bloodhound pup- chats 1 breed I've always liked but never had. That would be a good addition on patrol!

We don`t see many houses like that around here, seems like there were more fancy houses in the old days must of been a lot of work with hand tools.

Six great pics sure glad he didn`t get the barbecue.

Gunny...beautiful work...do you do the stone work? Italians are famous for that. My grandfather was an el primo concrete man. .

As you know finish carpentry requires patience, skill, and smarts. I'm impressed. I take it you need geometry with all those angles. I can add 1+1 and that's as far as I take it....oh! I also can use a ruler and a square! Maybe I can work with you one day! In fact , all of us can work together...you could be the boss and Jay, Pitchy and me can hold the beer and plug in the extension cords.-----6

Hey Six actually the only math involved is using a ruler. If this was real timber frame there would be more involved joinery but in this case it is decorative so it's not as important. So far there is only about 20 screws holding all of this stuff up!
Normal timber framing each section or bent is assembled on the ground, stood up in place then the next and so on. They are structural this really isn't.

I never cared for masonary work. Yes I can do it but I prefer sawdust.

Sure I'll run the crew! Work for an hour then BS for an hour then work an hour then go to lunch then hit the range until dark!

Jay that's just for a week or so- just so I can figure out everyone's strengths and weaknesses so I can be sure of getting something done :D .

In all seriousness though when I'm on a job I'm on the go but when I'm off the clock I'm as lazy as the next guy!

Now the forecast is rain until 10am, question is do I really want to go try to get something done while slipping around in the mud?!

Gunny,
You, lazy? You obviously haven't seen me in ac.......INaction. :D
Snowing hard here. Hairy ride home. Rollover blocked 95 so had to detour. Got home about 15 minutes late. Not too bad for a 50 mile ride, I guess.

Thanks, bro.

Haha yeah, thanks old buddy! :D

Been busy around here also. Had to drive around the metroplex from left to right & darned here top to bottom yesterday. But... since I have to replace the entire drain system under the house... and I'm a cheapskate, oh, and lest we forget, lazy... I hired a bunch of Mexicans to do the actual manual labor... With all the rain we've had over the summer and this fall... I've been pumping pert near non-stop for two days to get all the water out... pics when it warms up.

That does sound like a mess Griff, always something huh.
Here my outdoor wood stove isn`t regulating right, i set the thermo at 70 and it gets 80 in the house.
Thought maybe it was the thermostat at first but now have discovered the ledge under the door has coroded away allowing air to get in and the fire doesn`t shut down like it should.
Then Norma left the house door open for just a minute last week and one of those chipmunks got in, have traps set all over the place now. :roll:

Geeze....everybody has "issues" of some sort. Jay driving 50 miles in the snow......I don't think I ever drove 100 miles in the snow in my life. I only worked a mile away and if it snowed considerably, I just did not go to work because if it snowed that much nobody else did either.

One time we had one of these three foot jobs and the snow came while we were working....I knew this in advance and stayed home...took a personal holiday..........then as the snow accumulated, I jumped on the snowmobile and drove over to the plant and laughed at the idiots who did show up......asking them how they plan on getting home. Some did not. THATS why I kept a perfect attendance record, one of the best, if not the best in the plant. They tried everything to fire my azz but I rolled on through for 44 years. Phuck em if they can't take a joke. Now, they pay me to stay home...tax free. :D

Ok, now my headaches.....sent my money in for membership at the gunclub, did not show up..got to drive to the gunclub for the monthly meeting to straighten that out....think I'll bring the BAR for some fun---6

The first year I lived in Trinidad CO I went to Colorado Springs for Thanksgiving, yup a blizzard was raging. I was the last vehicle to get on I25. Had to go 120 miles. Lock the hubs and go! I don't mind driving in the snow- it's the morons that buy all wheel drive with street tires thinking they are invincible that worry me! But I've learned to just stay home if I can.
The blizzard of '96 I was down in Chevy Chase MD, talk about a clusterPhuk! Not a snowplow in the state. All of the DC area was shut down for days.

ALERT!!!!......ALERT!!!!......ALERT!!!!! Helmets on! Take cover!

HAD A CLOSE ONE GUYS!!!!!!

I have this Norway Maple tree that I planted when we first moved in, in 1975. A few years ago I noticed the bark coming off of it and filled with nasty looking bugs. It's now to the point where there is only bark on half of the trunk...dying...oh well, everything that lives eventually dies. Lots of dead branches I've been cutting off. I really want to save the tree and keep it looking good, so.....yesterday I knocked off a few dead ones.

I go out today to continue the tree work and as I'm gathering up the chain saw and other tools.....BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! in FULL AUTOMATIC mode. It was full auto but a little slower, about 500 rds a minute. HUGE holes all around me. I ducked, doing somersaults to make me a harder target. Holy shyt! I can't believe I'm here to tell the story!

SHYT! I don't live in the hood..what's the hells going on? I sneak around the house and take some pics..BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! a short burst. The coffee I was holding was shot out of my hands!!!!!!

Maybe you guys can help...I dunno.....may not be back on the show. Sirens, cops, even the military is here!

See the bark?
