Two strikes

Got about half way through cutting up the last little bit of wood. Hit a SPIKE!. Really done the chain a lot of good. NOT. So I painstakingly filed it back into shape. About 2 cuts later, I hit a rock that was hiding in the leaves. Luckily, it was an old chain and that just about finished it.
Took the old chain off and put on a brand new one. Came to my senses and decided that cutting up the rest of it could wait for another day. Didn't want to take a chance on that third strike.

reminds me of the newlyweds riding home after the ceremony. they were chatting amicably when one horse swatted at a fly and the groom said "here! that's once!" awhile later another fly and the groom said "that's twice!" third time the fella hauled out the shotgun, let fly and dropped the horse right in his harness! his new bride jumped into him and read him the riot act about animal cruelty and tantrums and changing his way of living and what she'd gotten herself into and such - when she was about done the fella smiled at her weakly and said "well, much as i hate to say it, that's once!" ;)

Well Lester, ya did the right thing, not goin' for the third strike. My school mate, Clell Bimby had three strike like that in one day and it so effected his judgement that two weeks later he bought a new Belarus tractor. It doesn't get much worse than that.

Well, I guess I know now for sure that it was a good thing I stopped when I did.

Don't surprise me none that Clell bought a Bella-ROOSE. That old coot never would part with a nickel until the buffalo was blue in the face and gaspin' fer breath...

It's a unique sound.
