...aaaaaaaand the stump grinding machine showed up this morning ... the guy from the rental store was kind enough to take it right back without charging me for delivery. "The larger one" was only $100 more, but I wasn't expecting something huuuuuuuuge that was capable of destroying everything in a half mile radius.

The stumps will live for a few more weeks, but so will I. :(

Never did a stump grinder.  I have however rented one of these:

Big chipper, nice chipper.  Don't pull my arm off chipper.  Makes short work of a huge pile of brush, but makes you feel like you could be involved in a "Fargo" incedent at any moment when near the in-take bit of it.

Haha, my old man was cutting down some problem tree up at his cabin and the shit fell into a power line. All you hear is some chainsaw action and just a "no.nononononononononononnNONONONO... FUCK!"

Heh, yeah.  My ex has this long near 1 mile-long driveway (yes, he lives in the "country") and was bringing in gravel or some such with one of those bucket trucks.  Seems they often travel with the bucket up....not necessarily the smartest of moves when on a gravel driveway in the middle of the woods.

Needless to say, apparently it got tangled in some trees and he ended up having to cut off the tops to free it up.

Towel day? That sounds suspiciously like a Douglas Adams reference (speaking of which, I will be 42 years old on Tuesday, do I get any specia recognition for that?)

Heh - you should have been out *here* on Thursday evening.

Magnitude 5.7 earthquake. Shook the livin' you-know-what outta htings.

It was the biggest 'quake since I moved out here from NJ back in June 2001. We had a 4.9 about 3 weeks after arriving, but nothing to speak of since then, and the other night.... BOOM!

And Abbie (the cat).... slept through the whole thing. Doesn't **that** just figure!
