Since wood and wood cutting are on the agenda, it reminded me of my wife's grandfather. Every time I go cut wood from the farm, he's in there like a dirty shirt. I tell him to take it easy but he insists on loading up the truck as I cut.
He also has many years of TCing in his younger days! :)

Take a guess at his age!! This is one of the few times that he would sit down.

I am guessing 89 looks allot like my Dad same shirt pants. He likes a good beer and he sure looks happy and like he is having fun.

I think he is 39 and looks 89. Should have put that gas log in! Saves a lot of wear and tear on the ole hide! :)

I guess 91 years young. Kinda looks like my grandfather, only he never touched beer, just moonshine that he brewed in the back 40. He only lived to be 65...hmmm wonder why. :)

George, you'd love to have this guy help you out. He outworks the energizer bunny! He also brought the beer, I was thinking coffee and he still goes for beer. Still...I don't think that was very far away! :lol: :lol:

I think he is 39 and looks 89. Should have put that gas log in! Saves a lot of wear and tear on the ole hide! B)



The way he works, a lot of teens would be looking for a different job. Hope my Moose Mugger gets some of this work ethic!
He usually walks with a cane but when he's in haul mode, that's usually lost some where and we're looking for it at the end of the day. :D

I'll let you guess a little more...he just had his birthday on Saturday.

The energetic youngster just turned 95 and can't waite for the next truck load of wood to cut. :D
