You must have JUST missed me. Does anyone know how many treated 4”x4” there are in the south half of Indiana? 
 

ZERO! Arggh

I was at Carter lumber Noblesville 2 or 3 days ago and I heard them tell a guy no treated lumber till July.

Somehow I got cut on the shin...LOL.  BTW, I did commercial metal siding and roofing for 15 years...got the scars to prove it.

Well I found 5 - 4”x6”’s and enough other pieces to at least get a corner started. 
 

Per my usual method I started digging the holes by hand. Since I’m totally NOT “Bought into” this project I quickly became bored and day dreamed of happily going to the liquor store. 
Just then it hit me. A neighbor told me some months ago, he’s got a one man powered auger. In the UTV I lept and off I went. 43 cc’s of redneck amazement soon began and what would have been 2 hours, was complete in 7 minutes. 
Why am I the last to learn these new tricks? I’ve since ordered one, 110cc’s!!! ( I may find oil) and turned on 4 new projects that I wanted, but didn’t want to dig the holes for. 
 

Now kill this plague and sell me some freakin lumber already!

When you are finished stop by by house. Last week I had to hand dig 16 holes each with 2 ft of concrete around each post. Got the new fence put up now the wife wants to add to the deck for the pool. Unfortunately cant find any 4x4 post😀

My air compressor assaulted me today. Was putting it away after doing brakes on my truck.  The hose came loose from the chuck on the tank and my berries took a shot of air and got drilled my the end of the hose. Not cool.
