I would second the notion. Had sashimi in a bento box lunch the other day with tuna, salmon, & another the young waitress couldn't identify, along with several pieces of tempura: shrimp, a roll, & veggie slices. Too much for one meal, so I had yumminess twice the same day.

Cheers!

New variety: Mute walnuts! Or you need more practice on the Queen's English.

Unless someone planted yours, they are most likely the native black walnuts. They are also most definitely an acquired taste. Around home, I get all I want, because the Englishman in the house won't touch them, let alone eat them.

Carol says correctly that those trees put out a poison, but some plants can withstand it & even flourish. I'm betting that blackberries are one of those plants.

I'm wondering if you could have your trees taken down, cut into manageable lengths, and seasoned on the farm while you carry on looking for an interested party. Is there an art school nearby? Or a woodworking/woodcarvers organization?

Di, with your artist connections, do you know somebody who knows somebody who might use it? (Isn't there a song?)

Well sir, there's my tuppence worth on the subject. I'm definitely not mute!

I think the problem with folks not wanting the trees is that they aren't big enough yet to fetch big bucks on a nice piece of furniture made from them...you'd think with Tim's growing family, he'd cut them himself to make a ig family get together table or something like that as a keepsake....

Back to the ladder question

My folding ladder can be set as a straight unit to lean up against the motor home (not sure if yours can). Use a small rug or old shirt behind the ladder to prevent scratching. I feel pretty secure leaning against the MH without a spotter.

Straightened out my bent basement door yesterday with some (insert your preferred state or ethnicity here - I'll use Kentucky because I have kin there) engineering. Put a tarp under the MH, laid the door on that bent side up. Put some wood strips under corners with edge of door aligned below MH frame rail. Set scissor jack on bent part of door frame and extended up to MH frame rail. Presto, 3000# bench press (knew the MH wasn't going to move any). Straightened door frame out fairly well, still a little off but I can get it to latch now. Still going to hit Colaw in MO on the way back to IN for a replacement...

Very creative, Dave!
So you now have access to the basement bowling alley. Woot!

A few years ago Larry would have taken the walnut wood, Tim, call The Art Center, they have woodworking classes, their instructors might...

The UHAUL propane is the only place in central Little Rock... believe me, we have looked... others too far to justify the difference...

Wayne asked me a few pages back, Larry is doing pretty good as far as his LVAD, however he does still have the common problems for Congestive Heart Failure, they are separate issues...

Dave I just knew you were going to tell me you straighten the door by driving across it.
I crumpled a metal ramp once when loading an old tricycle tractor on a trailer. Took the ramp and layed it out on a concrete slab and drove across it with a bulldozer. Still looks a little messed up but useable and fits back on ramp holder under the trailer!

propane closest and easiest at UHAUL on Kanis near you, probably just a few miles.... 12th actually turns into Kanis right before that, the Uhaul on your right.... if you are going west.
Thank you! I've already spent a lot of time trying Google, but couldn't get any good results.

I forgot about that Uhaul, I think it's too new to show up on G.
At $150 to have anything just looked at when it just takes removing a few bolts or scraping and squirting some caulk, I'll try it first.

Gosh, that comment took me back - here's an extract from Gerard Hoffnung's address to the Oxford Union in 1958:

That was the address that included the famous letter from the injured brick layer.
