Lumberjacks


Welcome to Lumberjack week here at OPOD. Today we will be investigating the hard working men and women who bring us lumber and lumber products. I love this picture from 1902. It was taken in Washington State. It shows a group of men working on cutting down a very large tree.

    Sure is quiet here so far today. Maybe the politically 'correct' are out in force today, perhaps gathering their anti-logging banners and tree-huggers.

    Personally, I'm looking forward to the photos this week. And the first one, that's a huge tree!

    Good morning, Mr. PJM, and to all.

  2. You would think that he could find a different place to take a nap other than in a place that could reach out and bite him.
    That tree is a Redwood or by another name a Sequoia.
    Did you know that the bark of a Sequoia tree is fire proof?

  7. I wonder why so many men are wearing what appears to be dress coats.
