Chicks and saws!!!



Today was a VERY fun day - Brian and I went to tree school that the OSU extension service put on - So first half of the day brian took classes on milling and mapping and I took a class called chainsawing for women - no we were NOT in bikinis boys!! we learned how to sharpen and maintain the saw as well as use it safely!! : ) oh boy that was very fun!! - the afternoon sessions Brian and I took together - a class on truffels which was awesome and then finished up the day learning a ton about water rights!! It was a great day!!! a super nice break from our busy lives - it was kind of like a date in a funny kind of way - and I got to learn a new skill - vrooom hukka hukkka watch out I'm gonna go cut some fire wood now!!
