Good morning readers. Thanks for coming by for a read this morning.
If you’ll take a close look at that ladder I climbed a dozen times, or more, you’ll see a person might wish to study on the design a few moments before he puts his weight on it. Luckily, I’m the luckiest man in the world and even noticing what I’d done after the fact didn’t leave me with a broken ladder, broken head, worse for the wear in any way.
Seems to me I’ve observed at one time or another that plenty of ways of a man ruining his day present themselves on a job of this sort. And almost no ways exist to come out of it feeling a lot better than he did going in.
The tree trunk was exerting a lot of social pressure on everything trying to hold it up. At the base it was unstable, something awful. I had my heart set on it not coming down and crushing my rooster containment center if I could help it.
I tried to insure against the possibility by lifting the base of the trunk with a bar and slipping in a couple of chunks of historical tree.
But even with all my precautions the trunk dropped a few feet when I finally made the last cut breaking it free of the building.
Tough day, everything else being equal.

Old Jules, what do you know about psychometry? I would love to know how to get started.
