So, are Yoopers tougher, or what?

Even under trying conditions, UP lumberjacks stay neat and clean-shaven. I don't know who the shaver is, but the shavee was my father-in-law Wendell Sims of Pickford. The year was in the late 20's or early 30's...don't know the camp's location...just sure it WASN'T Seeney.

You think you've got it bad...

I just wanted to let you know that I have recently been diagnosed with AAADD - Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder ... this is how it my day goes:

I decide to do the laundry, start down the hall and notice the newspaper on the table. OK, I'm going to do the laundry ... but first I'm going to glance through the newspaper.

After that, I notice the mail on the table. OK, I'll just put the newspaper in the recycle stack ... but first I'll look through the pile of mail and see if there are any bills to be paid. Yes. Now where is the checkbook? Oops ... there's the empty glass from yesterday on the coffee table. I'm going to look for that checkbook ... but first I need to put the glass in the sink.

I head for the kitchen, look out the window, notice my poor flowers need a drink of water, I put the glass in the sink and ... there's the remote for the TV on the kitchen counter. "What's it doing here" I'll just put it away ...

But first I need to water those plants. I head for the door and ... Aaaagh! Stepped on the dog. Dog needs to be fed. Okay, I'll put the remote away and water the plants ... but first I need to feed the dog.

By the end of the day, Laundry is not done, newspapers are still on the floor, glass is still in the sink, bills are not paid, checkbook is still lost, the dog ate the remote control ... and, when I try to figure out how come nothing got done today, I'm baffled because ... I KNOW I WAS BUSY ALL DAY!!!

I realize this condition is serious ... I'd get help, but first ... I think I'll check my e-mail!!!

p.s.-I think I've heard this one some where before.

As a retired 1980's "chainsaw" sawyer, I can only say that you old shavers had it easy.
Great shot!

We are 2 girls from England who logged on to this in our lesson but we just want to say... HOW CONSIDERATE! Even during harsh conditions they still shave to keep us ladies happy!!
