the 'todays job' thread

Recommended Posts

Tag teamed a crane removal Monday. Small drop zone and a large framework of branches so there was a bunch of picks, probably well over 30 which made for quite a long day. It was humid as anything and I was wrecked the next day, totally out of shape!

Had to retake this photo as I forgot to hold my gut in the first time round.65134913_441776369978339_1143561031407108096_n.thumb.jpg.627385b87a9f99331a90d60664d76d86.jpg
 
 
 
Nice one Steve, josh sent me a picture and he failed to mention you were there. In fact until I saw this post I thought he'd done it all by himself. Young guys these days. Can't wait to rib him in the morning.

Not all from today, nothing too exciting. Conny bashing, roadside removal with powerline and phone line dropped to make life easy.....
..then the hard job, took its toll on me! Keeping 30 kids attention for an hour while teaching them about the life cycle and habits of honeybees.. well out of my comfort zone! That said, it was satisfying to see their interest in the natural world. 20190629_122409.jpeg20190629_151045.jpeg20190610_193247.jpeg20190613_111442.jpeg20190610_193422.jpeg20190610_193311.jpegdownload_20190707_221552.jpegResized_FB_IMG_1561235163214.jpegFB_IMG_1561235208422.jpeg

With a late start! 

It'll be years before I catch up to where I think I should be in my head.

Just have to keep doing a bit every day.
