    I'm also 3/4 of the way through a stone retaining wall along my driveway, including relocating the ill-placed gate leading into my yard. You can see a bit of the stone wall to the right of the second picture. To give you an idea of what I'm working with:

    I've seen that handsome young man before! But not with a splitting maul in his hands!!!!

    4rs today. Worked another section of the snowmobile trail today. Put in a bridge, widen the opening in a stone wall. Finished up by installing a culvert which involved a lot of earth and rock moving to cover and anchor it.

    Can't beat time spent working with family. I wanted my kids to appreciate hard work, so we used a maul and wedges for a lot of years. When we started cutting for in laws, we couldn't keep up, so we got a splitter; still a lot of work.

    When I could still swing a maul I could go through clear green alder extremely fast. My splitter really slows me down, but at least I can do it. Slow and steady is the game for me now. Everyone stay warm.

    My maul swinging days are long gone too and had to hand off my chain saws this year, but I do what I can.

    I have several Oaks down and one Shag Bark Hickory that I can't give away; what a waste.

    This last weekend I worked on my wooden horse pasture fence project.

    Most of the seat time was running the PHD, but I did a little bucket work knocking down a high spot on the fence line.

    I posted some new pics here in this thread... Temporary Horse Pasture - Fencing advice please - Page 14 - TractorByNet.com

    MERRY CHRISTMAS ALL!!!

    So far today....this is what I've accomplished.

    Bought a trailer load of logs, brought them home and unloaded them.

    Next, I'll be bucking them out and then splitting. Then hopefully, I'll be loading firewood onto your truck and collecting cash. Come on and get you a load, cold weather is coming!

    I will be falling several trees in the back acreage in the next two weeks for firewood.

    Just curious, what does a cord of wood cost in your area?
