Lovely day, sinuses still a bit wonky, but I'm muscling past it. I have about half of my cedar pickets treated with the wood preservative; I stopped for a little while after emptying the old can and bringing the brush in to wash out. I'll stir up the next can (different brand, but also clear preservative) and finish after a late afternoon lunch.

Across the street a friend is taking down an old decrepit mulberry tree for that neighbor; he had the limbs down and the top half of the tall trunk off. He had sawed several vertical lines through the stump (the center is hollow) and was preparing to take it off at ground level when a guy drove by with a stump grinder on a trailer and offered to finish the job. They conferred and negotiated and now the stump is ground down and Antonio is finishing cutting up the rest of the trunk. It was an extra bit of cash for the guy who had rented the grinder to finish off several of his own tree jobs in the area, and it saved my friend a lot of work - he still made a reasonable profit on the job, but had a lot less work. We all stood around and talked for a few minutes - it was a nice visit. Then I headed back to my fence work in the garage. I may be able to put up the new fence panel tomorrow.

Don't forget to set the clock back an hour tonight, if your community participates in that Robbing-Peter-to-Pay-Paul program. Back to Daylight Savings Time.
