OOH bird shot with the right choke you could take that branch off like you used a saw!
Watched a southern cooking show that stars Vivian I think in North/South Carolina where they all went out & shot down some mistletoe from their trees for the hollydays. Worked very well. They all aimed at the same branch and BAM 👋 just like that, it was down.

The two bottom ones are from some unidentified ”cherry” wood that was dumped alongside the road and I picked up. I went back and picked up most of the remaining pieces. Top of the picnic table is now full with misc cherry logs.

Cherry Limbs All Cut Up

Nice find... I fell in love with cherry and what it can look like about 40 years ago. I lived in the southern part of Ohio along the Ohio river. I had a neighbor that made cabinets from cherry. He finished them naturally probably with an Amish type finish and stain...they were so beautiful. I wish I could run power tools like that so I always enjoy seeing what others can do with it. As a child, we had a lumber yard a block from me. I know now I was probably kinda 🙃 bugging them but they would let me play with their scrap wood. Many times they would send me home with a bunch of it.

I remember seeing a pic of the sullies inside a enclosure. They looked huge. I thought they might be older.
I only have actual pics of the sullies from the ip camera. They are huge ! The water tub in their enclosure is 22 inch long. The biggest one of the sullies will barely fit in this tub.

Happy Saturday, yesterday I drove my wheelchair up to the grocery store and got Rose some flowers, card and candy. I got back home before she woke up. She was surprised! It was the only way I could do it because I don't drive our vehicles. With her always driving it is hard for me to surprise her.
Hope everyone has a good weekend!
Wow ! Rose must have been very happy ! What a nice surprise. I got nothing....

Valentine’s Day is overrated.. I’d rather be gifted with some free wild flowers from my children on a day that no one expects anything... that’s REAL
I got my wife some marshmallows! They were fresh, hand made vanilla ones though! Out Shiloh Shepherd was the Valentine’s Day gift 4 years ago! But you are pretty right it is the most commercial of the holidays

All gifts are thoughtful.. my husband sent me 2 dozen beautiful roses arranged with a cute little bear... it was sweet but I hate that society pressures people. I’d rather be given something because someone thought of me.. not because they thought they had too. I hope that doesn’t sound un-appreciative... I got George, my favorite ferret for v day a couple years ago... and that meant a lot... because I know my husband can’t stand them but he knew how much I’d love him>-)

Me neither, Sabine. But then, I don't have a sweetie and Misty can't drive.

Well, I really shouldn't say I got nothing. My son-in-law came over and took my sprayer apart so I could take the battery up to Batteries and Bulbs and get a new one, then he climbed the ladder up to my 37 year old porch light (yes, 37 years old! The label on the photo sensor was stamped 1983) to see why it wouldn't turn off in the daylight, then removed the photo sensor and took it up to Home Depot to see if he could find a replacement, which he did, then he climbed the ladder again and fixed the light! So I guess I DID get a couple pretty nice presents for V day! This allowed me to spray three tanksful of solution on the weeds around the outside of my fence. (I LOVE my sprayer!!!)
