Evidence of a Sasquatch version of tic-tac-toe? :shrug:
Funny you should mention that. I have a theory about the possible Sasquatch connection, but nobody on this forum is ready to hear it.

A Sasquatch investigator found this tree, and another laying on the ground a few hundred feet away, in west-central Oregon.  He had never seen this before, and nobody I've encountered has either.
Those "X" patterns are actually raised, not gouged into the tree.

I was just curious if any of the woods bums here had seen this before?

An alternate theory is that they are scars beneath the bark from old limbs. If you look at the tree behind the de-barked one, you see the stubs of many branches that have been shed as the pine grew.  But if this were the case, almost every standing deadwood pine (less bark) would look that way.

Well that was a crappy day you had there Orbean.  I have often wondered what a plumber says to his wife when she asks how his day was.

I am not allowed inside with my work clothes on,  everything is left in the garage. I have busted my girlfriend more than once washing my clothes with the dogs blankets. I get no respect.

Actually I have been lucky, I don't see much black water type of waste, but I  have unfortunately had to deal with medical waste lines, you really watch yourself because you will get sick for sure if there is an accident.

That brought back some painful memories.   I recall being over-the-knee-deep (with hip waders on) in a huge septic tank one time when I was a kid working summers in a state park.  There was a layer of bright yellow corn on the bottom and what I thought were baby jellyfish floating on top.....turned out it was an ancient, but massive school of condoms. :doh:

We are muddy.  Nothing grows around here except grass until the first couple of weeks in May.  Our last freeze date for a freeze is in late May so not vegetables are planted much before that date.  No snow is left except in the Black Hills south of us.

I started a waste line replacement today. It is going to be pain. The first thing I have done is dig a five foot section to find and then follow this piece of old cast iron. The dirt is typical, mineralized so much that it is almost white, and some parts are white. But I am getting away from my story

So, I cut out a 2 1/2 foot section to install a clean out, One section of the pipe broke crooked so I had to recut it with the grinder. My back is to the house. I do not have my waterproof boots on. No one told the homeowner what we were doing and to not use water until we were done. As I am cutting this pipe with a grinder my feet feel damp, I keep on cutting, concentrating so I have a square cut. Then my feet feeling wet, the trench was filling with water, the first damp feeling was toilet. The main water that filled my boot was a mixture of gray and black water. Someone, (who will pay for his laughing ways, hands me the cleanout set all glued and with the rubber adaptors on each side. I stick line up both ends of the pipe, slip the adaptors on to the cut cast iron, tighten four o-rings with a torque wrench, while my hands were almost elbow deep. What I will do to make a buck. Grossest thing I have ever done in all my years of plumbing. As for laughing boy, what pain I have for him frankly should be illegal, and under most circumstances morally wrong.  LOL, he is a good kid but he will pay
