    I watched two suckling pigs sweating over the fire, and of course took a bite once they cooled down.
    Yummy with onions and beer . . .

    She is a beauty

    Its amazing how they all look alike but totally unique at the same time

    We are really struggling with getting another after Sydney goes

    We spend half the year in Hawaii and taking a dog back and forth has become such a major pain in the ass with the airlines

    I am sure we will at least take a break and see just how big a hole it leaves in our lives

    I suspect there will be another, despite the obstacles

    Got any leftovers? Lol. Damn I love some pig cooked over the fire.

    Looks great, Wilhelm. Hope you have a Merry Christmas.

    I am not arguing with that dog...

    If he says it's a doggie thread; then, it's a doggie thread...

    Lol. The only thing in danger with this guy is cats and food. He's half shepherd and took that disposition. He's a big teddy bear.

    Finished porting my first saw and making a loud muffler for it. It runs pretty good. Advanced the timing 1/3 of the key. Meteor p&c with caber rings. Got squish to .020, exhaust port widened to 65% of diameter and intake widened to within 2mm-3mm of skirt width. Wish I would have taken pics while porting but it was late last night and wanted to hear it run so I hurried through it. Finished tig welding the stainless pipe on the muffler this morning and tuned it a bit. Needs to be broken in then I will probably take it apart and take some pics and check things out. It was real fun porting. Now I wanna do all my saws. Next will be the 034av or the mutt 066.

    Not mine, I just got invited for hopefully good company while the pigs were turning in the fireplace.
    We also grilled some home made sausages and bacon so we didn't eat much of the pig, there was plenty left for the upcoming holidays.

    Tomorrow I am invited to some open fire fish cooking, I am still at odds whether to go.

    Thank You, a very merry Christmas to You too!

    Finally got this MS460 Magnum I picked up really cheap put back together. It looked like a tree fell on it when I found it on Facebook, couldn't pass up the deal though. The saw has great compression and runs strong, all the mechanicals are OEM. All the plastics (top cover, filter cover, tank) were busted up pretty bad, as we're the recoil and wrap handle. They were all replaced with AM parts. It'll get some mods down the road, but I want to run it some.....gonna put it to use this weekend.

    Before:

    The icing on the cake was the Rollomatic 25" and near-new 28" bars it came with. I have a total of 300 bucks in this saw, I think I did alright!!
