    17MAR17:

    Seriously about ready to kill someone or something. Anything. Haven't been this frustrated in can't remember when.

    Logger called last week and hopes to have the logs delivered this coming month. Real helpful guy. He was able to answer my questions about the log yard set-up also. I need to get at least 3 sacrificial trees cut down and dragged into place to put the logs ...
