Scene: Spring cleaning outside the construction site that is our home. We live in the middle of a coulee filled with oak and ash trees and their bare, fallen branches gave me an idea…
And now, for a quick conversation with Husband:
Me: There sure are a lot of fallen trees around here.
Me: Hey, wouldn’t these trees make a great rail fence?
Me: I mean, think of the money we’d save! All the supplies we need are right in our backyard.
Him: Better go get your ax.
Me: Why do I halfta use an ax? Why can’t I use a chainsaw?
Him: Because a chainsaw doesn’t build strength and character does it?
Me: I’ve got enough character…
Him: And also, if I gave you a chainsaw, you’d find a way to chop your own head off…
And that, ladies and gentlemen is, how you crush dreams.

Thank u for what you do……………..Hugs Airbob in LB, Ca
So freaking funny…. good luck with the fence… sounds like a great idea. 🙂
Could make a movie of your chainsaw skills…thanks for sharing!!
Chainsaws – I have a healthy respect for them. I use a bowsaw whenever possible.
My husband regularly points out the flaws in my dreams. What kind of trees are they??
Oh, I hear you! Even though my husband gave me an electric chain saw for Christmas several years ago (my request :-)), I would have to but so much protective gear to use it safely (his request :-/), that it killed all my motivation…maybe I will have to take another look at that! Thanks.
