Hope you have a good weekend Gregotyn. You do seem to be getting on well with the log nets. I had to make 13 log sacks up yesterday to finish off an order, and another for 10 next week. This is while ...

We have been fortunate with the weather lately as it has been mainly dry, although generally a bit cool. Seems to be warming up a bit now though, so plenty of charcoal orders. Husband and son will be ...
