    I'm back in the saddle again.

    I must admit I was hesitant to pull the trigger , but after the opening cut it came back to me just like riding a bike. My sawmill is singing her log song again - I'm happy happy happy. She's a hungry sawmill and only chews up logs - now I just gotta keep her fed.

    I cuts 7 1x6-9' long for a special project for two very special little girls.

    Will be doing this again soon too. Boyfriend has a lumber contract I help him with. Got an order last month. Now if it'll quit raining long enough to get some logs in.....not holding my breath!
