A little color this morning for a minute or two.
Warm today so I was out working on a sawbuck this morning. I was going to make a more elaborated version out of lumber but noticed a piece of shipping crate in my junk wood pile and it looked kind of like a sawbuck so I started making the X part on the top to hold the logs.
It is light enough for me to carry around so I took it to the front yard and sawed up limbs that I had trimmed awhile back. I used hand saws but of course it is good for a chain saw and will keep the blade out of the ground. Ended up with a little over 2 wheelbarrow loads.
This afternoon was Carrie's first shooting lesson and she must have listened to the lecture part as she was putting shots in the red center of the target most of the time. I gave her my grandfather's 22 for christmas and a box of bullets. When I was little, my grandfather used to shoot at ground hogs with it and had me stand in front of him and used my head to steady the gun on, guess I was just the right height for him. It is a single shot and still shoots pretty good groups.
