I would like to express my love and gratitude for my Beloved. She keeps me well fed!
Brother’s Campfire at Willow Manor is busy busy. On Sunday, One of my dear friends taught me basic steps on how to use a chainsaw safely. I was provided with a hard hat, ear protection and safety glasses. There is much more to using a chainsaw than meets the eye.
Don’t let a chainsaw meet the eye. That is bad. As you see in the picture below, I started small.
I learned that you cut with the top one third of the chainsaw and work straight down. It is important that the chain does not touch the ground while running as it wears the blade down.
I made quite a few mistakes, but by the end of the afternoon I felt like I had learned the basics of a new skill.
Brother’s Campfire goes through a lot of firewood so it is good to build relationships with arborists. My friend is a pro, but he is very private and does not wish for a shout out. I respect that or this post would be about how amazing he is.
As I said at the beginning, busy busy! I also have taken time to learn more about sprinklers. No one really wants to read a blog about sprinklers, but I will leave you this; a whole valve with a solenoid is cheaper than individual parts.
As you see, the diapham parts and the solenoid total 25 USD, but the whole thing is cheaper. FYI.
I worked on the sprinkler boxes most of Monday. If I learn the electronics part, I will have another skillset under my belt! I would like to thank my friend John Leyba Senior for helping me troubleshoot. We interacted in a series of texts lile this one.
I did leave some time for entertainment and tried something I saw online with Trumpet, my goose. She had a blast and kept coming for more. Silly goose!

Well friends, I hope you have a beautiful day. It is time for me to get ready for work!
