The Answer To The Paul Bunyan Surprise.....

Because you have all asked what the mission by Paul Bunyan and Tim the Tool Man Taylor was, here is the comment that Daddy posted on the blog entry entitled Mission Accomplished.

WOW Honey I'm still astonished at what you've done!!!!!!!!! THANKS!!!!! Well to let all of you know out there in blogger land....Lori my hard working and loving wife has done an amazing feat! You see just before I left on this last military trip I cut down a huge tree in our front yard and didn't have enough time to haul it all away. So most of it was left in the backyard of which Lori helped me or should I say SHE hauled it there for me, so that when I returned I could finish the job.Knowing full well that when I returned I would be faced with a monumental task of logging for a few days Lori decided to help her hubby out and do it herself!!!! AUGH....Yep Lori the logger...or Paul Bunyan's helper...she is fantastic!!! And mind you this was not a branch or two this was a whole tree!!!! She cut, stacked, removed it all!!!! Honey I hear Weyerhauser is looking for a few good lumberjacks! But not only was she lumberjack but she also pressure washed our whole patio and fixed up the backyard as well...weeding.. trimming plants and making our yard more livable. You see I had given up on it because of our precious little beast Abbey...a very active black lab we got as a puppy....and puppies like to dig and chew and totally annihilate things which she did in short order to our backyard! But thanks to the hard efforts of my beautiful wife.... Daddy can now spend quality time with her and the kids instead of working for days out back... probably only doing half as nice a job as she has done in ONE DAY !!!! Yep one day!!! Wow is she ever efficient!!!! I guess that comes with being a busy Mommy!Thanks Honey..this is truly a gift not only do I thank you but my back does too!!!

OK Gramps....I'm not going to forget you either...You see Lori did have a little help...Grampa Milliren came up and helped Lori with all the "lumberjacking" and the use of his truck to haul it all away and I hear he can swing a mean chainsaw with the best of those Weyerhauser lumberjacks! Oh and he also pressure washed our back deck off which is quite a job!! Thanks Gramps for all your hard work! You've both done a fabulous job I sincerely appreciate it!!!!!

Oh and last but not least.. I can't forget Grandma Milliren....none of this would have been possible without her vigilant watch over our "littlebug" and "sweetpea" so Mama and Grandpa could practice their chainsaw and axe swinging routines...thanks Grams!!

Love Randy and "his non aching back"
