Well, it's spring.... I think. It's looking like spring again and if we don't get another snowstorm to shake my enthusiasm, then I guess it really will be spring.

With spring, my thoughts turn to , you guessed it! FENCING!!!! What I wouldn't give right now to have a good man with a chainsaw!! We would be cutting fence posts out of the hedge trees like crazy! I think that owning and being able to run a chain saw should just be considered part of the definition of a "good man".

Mac never considered chain saw prowess to be a real man virtue, at least, not from what I can tell. That's too bad. But that's life isn't it? I also have a can opener that doesn't open cans most of the time. Yet for some reason I hang on to the darn thing thinking some day it will start working and fulfill it's calling. In the mean time I crank away and get an inch of the can top open. Then eventually another inch and then another. Then I pry the damn thing open with a butter knife and tell myself that some day I am going to slice my wrist open on the bent up jagged lid.

Oh well. I will probably continue to use.....(edit) TRY to use, the can opener. I'll probably hang onto Mac as well. But how I wish some nice fella would show up and volunteer to cut posts for me. Wouldn't that be something?!!

I'm glad it's spring.

  1. That's is a funny post, Louie!
    Since no good man showed up for me, I was sick and tired of waiting. I learned how to use a chain saw and cut down all the dead trees on my property for firewood myself. There are always options :-)
