Chainsaws and Computers
So as I write this I'm pretty exhausted. Work today at the dirt pit (where I help a friend out in clearing brush, cutting up trees, etc.) was quite intensive. But let me start with yesterday. Last night, as the first photo below, had me working on a computer. I'd found a computer at work and wanted to see if it was any good. The CD ROM had stuff in it (paper and pen parts) and the mouse was quirky. But I love tinkering. And since I've been eyeing getting a new computer to allow picture editing, it might help. Alas not. The monitor is on it's last leg and though I got the CD ROM working, it was sketchy. The hard drive is only 40GB, which is small when you consider a RAW file (photography) is about 24.5 MB. In the end, it'd cost more to fix this or I could go get a new computer with less of the hassle. I had to try, and as Ginger said, you love doing this stuff!
So today, I worked on cutting big trees up to get fence post material. It was cloudy this morning but the sun was beaming this afternoon. I have the sun tan to prove it! But I made alot of head way and hey, getting paid doesn't hurt either! So I saw my tools laying there and thought, this would make a great shot! And I do love the shot. I couldn't see how well it came out till I got the file on the computer. The loper's shown, a $20.00 tool I've had for a few years have more than paid for themselves in spades. The gloves are very important and of course the ear covers. The chainsaw itself, well I can make it purr, but I have to watch myself from going too fast. I love working for my friend, we like to have a good time and he knows he can leave me at a job and it'll get done.
