bad idea?

These are my parents:


Sometimes they come up with crazy ideas.  Actually a lot of times they come up with crazy ideas.  The problem is, unlike most people with crazy ideas, they actually implement them.  Sometimes this results in disaster (both of my parents have cut up digits- my dad has lost (and reattached eventually) just about every finger he has!) but once in awhile their crazy idea works.

The other day, after the container was loaded and on its way, my parents had another crazy idea.

It involved a chainsaw:


And the afore mentioned gigantic forklift...



But notice who is in the driver's seat this time...my mom!

The giant forklift comes with this warning label:



But that didn't stop them from doing this:


uh oh...


..."uhh, guys?  remember the sticker?"


I think this qualifies as standing on the forks...


And that is the chainsaw at my dad's feet...


And that goes REALLY high!


My dad trimmed the pine tree... pretty much successfully.  And my mom moved him up and down into the tree...also pretty much successfully...


See- they're both smiling... all their fingers are still on their hands and my dad didn't fall head first to his death... and the tree is trimmed...

Another crazy idea that was a success....

Until this happened....


That would be the chainsaw stuck in the tree... without my dad and the forklift attached to it... but that's another story!
