SAT, I've been meaning to tell you how much I admire you and your wife's habit of reading together.
My husband and I do the same, but I could never read aloud for 2 to 3 hours. That's impressive!
45 minutes is about my limit before my voice starts going out.
Thank you, Miss @thistlebloom! Yes, we do that every night for about 2 hours before going to bed. I quit posting the book summaries on my journal because I figured I was just boring people, but we still read every night. We read between 2-3 books a week.
It does make you wonder. I did a good bit of search on stump buckets, and that brand had one of the thicker steel plates being used. I plan on contacting the company to see what they say.That is a serious bummer STA! Not sure how "heavy duty" that bucket is if you managed to bend a tooth. I wonder if it can be bent back where it belongs without just weakening the metal and having it break off.
How I wish our town road guys understood that! The run the grader down the road, chew stuff up and spread it back out. But no roller, no packing. The potholes show right up again as people whiz down the road spinning stuff out of the depressions. We are at the top of a rise, people seem to speed up as they come over the crest, the pot holes in front of our house always seem to reshow faster than the ones down the hill.Otherwise, they then grade the sides up into the center so there is a ridge of gravel/rock/dirt, then take and grade off the center part and then pack it.
I'd love to meet your son, Miss @farmerjan! Somehow I don't thing his idea of a break would be to travel here! And at the moment, it's not all that warm -- it was 26°F this morning with a steady breeze -- brrr!Would your son like a nice few days in warm western Arkansas?
