Manly Men with Chainsaws


About a dozen muscular manly men with hardhats and bushy beards were spotted high in the tree tops sawing away with their chainsaws. Having wrestled with a chainsaw once or twice while standing on the ground, I can't even imagine trying to use one while hanging in the top of a tree. The object seemed to be to trim the trees away from the high power wires; but the chainsaw men seemed to be having a good time.

My husband works for a power company. Lucky for me, trimming trees has never been his job. I'd be scared for him, but these guys are well trained!

Another of the many things I'm happy I never tried.

I've seen something like that and I am sure I can't do it.

Wouldn't want to have to do that, but am happy to watch!
