Donna wanted to do some trimming with the chain saw, but I have found over the last couple years since she had her heart procedure, that she just doesn’t have the strength to start it if she stalls it. and the one I have is a 20 inch blade with a pretty good sized motor so it is heavy. Her upper body and arm strength isn’t what it used to be, and I know I get tired of lugging it after awhile.
I decided to get her an early Mother’s day present so I went to Lowes and they had a Poulan 14 inch electric chain saw that was really light in weight and would be just perfect for the smaller stuff she wanted to trim. My gas saws are Poulans and they make a good saw.
The best part was it was on SALE for $49.99. I think she is happy with it and I know I will be with not having to walk across the yard when the saw stalls and having to start it again. Oh by the way that is the last time it will see the cook station table top, I had just taken it out of the box for a picture and I hadn’t put oil in it for the chain so I knew it was squeaky clean. The only table it will see after this is one of the work benches or the truck tailgate.
All in all we had a good day and got some stuff accomplished and tonight I will be taking Donna to Country Buffet for supper. She is looking forward to a nice no cooking at home meal with plenty of food.
Rigg’s and Sadie had a good day helping on the porch until they finally got chased for being in the way, As I type this Rigg’s is snoozing next to my chair in the kitchen, it’s hard on a guy to play and work all day so he needs his naps.
Not much else going on on this Sunday in Dardenne Prairie ,Hope everyone is having a great weekend. Be safe out there.. Sam & Donna….
