Thanks Mater

I just lay the boards across the rafters in the attic.  I don't stack it..  I don't mill a lot at one time.

I've been using it like a floor up there, gives me a little more storage place while the boards dry out up there.

 A guy took his blonde girlfriend to her first football game.
They had great seats right behind their team's bench.
 After the game, he asked her how she liked the experience.
"Oh, I really liked it," she replied,  but I just couldn't understand why they were killing each other over 25 cents."
 Dumbfounded, her date asked, "What do you mean?"
"Well, they flipped a coin, one team got it, and then for the rest of the game, all they kept screaming was,
 'Get the quarterback!
 Get the quarterback!'
 I'm like, hello?
It's only 25 cents!"  ;D

Well with tax time coming up I just had to post this.

Driving to work, a gentleman had to swerve to avoid a box that fell out of a truck in front of him.
 Seconds later, a policeman pulled him over for reckless driving.
 Fortunately, another officer had seen the carton in the road.
The policeman stopped traffic and recovered the box.
It was found to contain large upholstery tacks.
"I'm sorry sir," the first trooper told the driver, "but I am still going to have to write you a ticket."
Amazed, the driver asked for what.
The trooper replied, "Tacks evasion."  ;D
Happy Hour / Hereford heifers

After the strong winds the other day I had gathered a full truck load of limbs out of my yard.  I decided I was not going to pile them up over the fence all winter and have a huge pile to deal with next spring.  So it was a nice day and I decided to haul them to a brush pile on the back of our farm .  We rent our land to a good fellow that raises Hereford cattle.  When I drove out to the brush pile all the heifers came running to see what I was doing.  Around my truck was at least twenty of the prettiest Hereford heifers that were being weaned.  I just stood for a minute and looked them over.  When you've been raised around cattle all you're life you will pause to take them in.  They were nice.  Then I went back across the pasture to the highway and slung manure all over the road and my mud flaps. A day in the life.
Flowers / Re: What is Blooming?

I've got some garden mums blooming and there are fat buds and a few blooms on the azaleas. Lantana and a couple roses have blooms too. Just amazing to me to have anything green let alone bloom in late November

I had some walnut and cherry stored in my hay barn and recently while building a table for my wife I discovered while planing the wood that the wood bees had been hard at work on my boards.  There was some loss and I had to work around what they had ruined.  Needless to say I moved the rest of my lumber to a smaller barn which was tighter and less accessible to these little varmints.  Lesson learned.
