ziggysdad: Hi Paranoia and Joey Jul 23, 2016 20:26:22 GMT 10
paranoia: Watching a wonderful movie called "My dinner with Andre", just two blokes in a restaurant talking but it raises some amazing points about the nature of reality & the illusions we navigate in modern society.. good gear :) Jul 23, 2016 20:29:47 GMT 10
paranoia: Also managed another gun shop trip today... nearly hit my 22LR ammo target :) Jul 23, 2016 20:35:40 GMT 10
ziggysdad: Been looking at bows and axes Jul 23, 2016 20:36:35 GMT 10
paranoia: oh nice... I need some proper arrows for my bow Jul 23, 2016 20:37:20 GMT 10
paranoia: these like tactical axes or more hatchet things? Jul 23, 2016 20:38:10 GMT 10
Chloe: Sorry for the Kate reply clear view. And yeah I try to get on quite a bit. I enjoy the chat box :) Jul 23, 2016 21:26:43 GMT 10
Chloe: Late reply * lol Jul 23, 2016 21:26:54 GMT 10
paranoia: haha, It struck me as a bit of a "Come here often?" comment... could just picture the wink Jul 23, 2016 21:31:43 GMT 10
Joey: Hey Ziggy, I too need to look at and axe and or splitter too, just ordered a 18" chainsaw which will hopefully arrive this week sometime. Tradetools has then on special ATM for $170 saw only or $198 with a electric sharpener Jul 23, 2016 22:09:51 GMT 10
Joey: Jul 23, 2016 22:10:46 GMT 10
paranoia: 18"... mines only 400mm :p Jul 23, 2016 22:34:53 GMT 10
paranoia: don't really like axes though... even for splitting wood I prefer using a wedge and hammer Jul 23, 2016 22:37:13 GMT 10
Chloe: Damn I'm cold tonight. Should of put the fire on Jul 23, 2016 22:52:57 GMT 10
paranoia: Yep! and now its too cold to go get firewood :p Jul 23, 2016 22:54:15 GMT 10
Chloe: You're reading my mind hahah Jul 23, 2016 22:55:07 GMT 10
paranoia: I imagine its a fairly common dilemma... I'm silly enough to keep the firewood about 30m from the house... so the electric heater gets used more than it should Jul 23, 2016 22:59:59 GMT 10
Chloe: Our larger pieces are on the side of the house and I was too lazy to bring them in the garage earlier on hahah Jul 23, 2016 23:47:08 GMT 10
clearview: Cold here in the hills too! Dgtr choked the fire and it's very slowly fighting back, just checking recent posts then push up some seeds!! Jul 24, 2016 0:04:37 GMT 10
Joey: That's where a wood splitter comes in para. Jul 24, 2016 1:07:27 GMT 10
