I should have never left the ladder against the house, three times I've had to chase the kids off the rooves(roofs)sp???, this is what I get for building their confidence and adventourous side.

OH, just to deal with the really bad day I've had( in my head), I dropped 4 BIG a$$ trees and the kids were like, " so, big deal", I can't win for losing man.

:D My wife would have an absolute fit if I left a ladder up to the roof!
I'm sitting here instead of waking the now sleeping 3yo who was screaming earlier. The silence is nice. Tara is coloring at the table after having helped me with the dishes.
Nice to sit down once in a while.

Mr. Clampett behind us left a 6' ladder up once. When I saw the 2yo girl standing up on the top rung I didn't even bother looking for the mom, I just hurdled the fence and got her down. Next time they leave the ladder out I'm putting the yapping dog up there.

G2 took a 3 1/2 hour nap today.

So the school bus won't let kindergarten kids get off unless an older sibling or parent is there to walk them home. Since our oldest is in Kinder, I have to trek to the corner to get the boy every day. Since I can't see the stop from the house, it has been a big pain in the butt all year long, if the younger kid is napping.

Today little sister was wide awake, playing tea party with her dolls but I fell asleep in my comfy reading chair while I was waiting for the bus. Next thing I knew, J, my 6 year old was running in the house, screaming "Hey Dad! I walked myself home!"

Scared the bejebus out of me and woke me up, quick.

My day just keeps getting better, NOT, a landowner whose land I've been cutting on, reminded me of who was the lordandmaster and who was the serf, thanks buddy.
On the way home from his place, I filled up my truck, $80, sheesh. On from there I stopped at a horseguys house, had stopped once before so he remembered me, well, he has a 4x4 tractor, and I need some red oak logs yanked and loaded, he wants to really see what his tractor can do other than shovel horse poo, so we started striking a deal. I'll be able to share more facts later this week.

Oh yeah, and by the way on the way home I realized......look for it.

Woody,

Don't buy the equipment outright. Look into the possibilities of renting on an as-needed basis until you get established. Maybe you could get a break on rental fees if you did some maintainence for them or became a regular customer? You should do what you're good at and hire gorillas for the heavy-lifting.

You'd also need to do sales calls, quotations/proposals, and advertising. Perhaps the 'downsized' spouse could work the office or even do sales calls/consultations while you're out lumberjacking.

You might also rely on your arborist skills as well. It's not always about 'taking it down'. With your knowledge of trees and all things agricultural, you'd probably be quite dangerous as a landscape architect (not a grass-cutting landscaper) - what to plant and where, for the right reasons.

Don't sell yourself short! And don't let them get ya down!

Check this on ebay out for what you need for that tree business Woody. Only had 62,000 miles, $5K. Not only that, but your kids, or their friends, would never forget it. I swear, I thing if this had been closer to me, I would've gone for it just for the hell of it. Read the description, this guy is one cool dad. Yea, Indy's is cool too, but look at that thing man!
