    TWO guys were out hunting in the outback and came upon a huge hole in the ground. They approached it and were amazed at its size. The first said, "Wow, that's some hole. I can't even see the bottom. I wonder how deep it is." The second said, "There's an old gear box over there. Let's throw it in and see how long it takes to hit bottom." So, they picked up the gear box, carried it over to the hole, counted one-two-three and heaved it in. As they were standing there, looking over the edge of the hole, a goat come crashing through the underbrush, ran up to the hole and without hesitation, jumped in head first. While they were standing there staring at each other in amazement, they peered into the hole, trying to figure out what that was all about. Just then an old farmer sauntered up. "G'day, you blokes didn't happen to see my goat?" The first hunter said, "Funny you should ask. We were just standing here a minute ago and a goat came running out of the bushes doing about 100 MPH and jumped head first into this hole!" The old farmer said, "Nah, that's impossible! I had him chained to a gear box." [emoji12][emoji106][emoji106][emoji106]

    Anyone available in the NW?

    I travel nationwide. Luckily the couple own a holiday cottage next door, normally it's cheap digs or camping in the summer. The clients originally wanted dimensional cut timber. The tree had fallen in a storm in 2012. The logs were completely unsuitable for this, as the grain was all over the place and had started to spalt. However it will make the most incredible table tops. 5-6 tons of slabs. I charge a flat day rate. I have a commission arrangement for selling the slabs. [emoji106]
