    Nice contrast!
  4. I have been looking forward to seeing photos. Thank you for posting.
  5. That is part of my morning prayers as well. I wish you the best for your son.
  6. Nice to see the dairy farm photos. Thank you.
  7. Praying for healing and comfort for Zeke, you, and your family.
  8. Congratulations on the ten (and seventeen) years. May you share many more.
  9. Yes. The pores of white oak wood are occluded. Those of species in the red oak family are not. Being more porous, water absorbs more quickly into red oaks and black oaks. White oak has greater decay and insect resistance than red oak. The occluded pores (and tannins) make white oak desirable for cooperage.
  10. Me too. I always liked the sounds as well, and your videos captured them nicely..
  11. Congratulations. The photos and narrative have been inspiring. Thank you for documenting and sharing your work. Yes.
  12. Sounds like a good start to recovery. Best wishes for continued improvement.
  13. Yes. We appreciate the photos and the time/effort taken to share them.
  14. Thank you. Each year seems to roll around more quickly.
  15. Complete defoliation decreases, but does not eliminate possible recovery. Generally, if defoliation is no more than 60%, you can expect a second flush of leaves yet this season. I think it is too early to consider them lost.
  16. A life well-lived. May the care and comfort he has provided to others surround him and his family.
  17. Stretching as described and topical application of cannabis butter works for me. If cannabis butter is not available, you might get some relief with aspercreme or tiger's balm. Stretching the calf muscles and hamstrings will also relieve some tightness - just don't stretch to the point of pain. As mentioned above, stay hydrated. Good luck with your treatment.
  18. A shared statement for many of us. Welcome to the forum. Nice country around the Shawnee NF. Do they still close roads for snake crossings in the spring?
  19. I guess the Kansas hedge is the same as osage orange. We called it hedge or bowdock (bois de arc) in southern Kentucky. It's for sure hard and for sure burns hot. I pasted some comparisons below. https://www.wood-database.com/ Osage Orange Specific Gravity (Basic, 12% MC): .76, .86 Black Locust Specific Gravity (Basic, 12% MC): .66, .77 Shagbark Hickory Specific Gravity (Basic, 12% MC): .64, .80 Northern Red Oak Specific Gravity (Basic, 12% MC): .56, .70 Quaking Aspen Specific Gravity (Basic, 12% MC): .35, .42
  20. Close call. Good to read you recovered so quickly. Best of luck managing the bp and cholesterol.
  21. Congratulations. Qualifying for both the relay and the 3200 shows Connor has both pace and endurance. Good luck at the state meet.
  22. What a great attitude and outlook! The baler thread has been enjoyable and educational.
  23. Thank you for sharing the photos. As mentioned above, it looks like a great environment for working with family. The landscape is striking.
