No, not the impeachment BS, me. Today I cut, split and stacked a face and a half of good hardwood, fixed up 2 tree stands for next week's deer gun season and
put a new handle on a cant hook that I busted a couple weeks ago when a log misbehaved on a landing.
I flat out hurt and can't wait to see what it feels like in the morning.
Why it was not more than a couple three years ago when I had my son and his buddies doing this stuff for me while I
sipped mint juleps on the veranda. Dang kids moving on and getting their own life.

I was right there with you last week Zim. Split a huge pile of chestnut and birch with a hydraulic splitter and a buddy but my back was screaming for three days after.

And I never had kids so I've never had a mint julep either.

Good luck.

Getting old is not all it is cracked up to be .But it beats the other option!! So if you are hurting at least you are still feeling .

LOL, yep, hang in there Zim, lol. I used to look at a creek and jump it, or a tree limb and look up, jump and grab it. It's hard to will my body to hurt itself anymore.
