Well yeah, Im a new guy. I have spent the evening reading posts and I must say what a great place this is. People here seem open and honest and that is very refreshing. Is this the start of getting old ?.....4 mths ago I started doing what I do every year, i started dropping trees and cutting them up to be packed in the wood shed for next winter. Easy, drop the tree, clean it up, cut the trunk into 2ft lengths and then split that with a sledge hammer and wedge. Well, I did that for two days just going easy and I had about 6 cords packed in the shed with about another 6 to go. Went to get out of bed the next morning.....couldnt move. That was 4mths ago and I am just starting to be able to walk properly again. I have always been a very big strong man, for the last few mths My wife has been helping me dress. Its quite depressing eh. Anywhooo....I am going to have a crack at doing some work tomorrow, gonna harvest 12 chickens and 12 rabbits. My wife will do all the bending, I still cant pick up things from the ground. Cheers and stay healthy.
