No, 'C' for Catholic way of spelling.... still same God...
Marck... Best of both worlds!
Yes, but, my mom's side is french. so, that's the reason I am a C.
My first thoughts were "Man, that's a rug! Then the bark shouted, Not Wood!! Too bad I didn't see the post until Saturdays when I get the weekend wrap up. ........... Jerry (in Tucson)
I forgot to mention, this has been mailed last week.
Marc, I understand this is not a for sale or trade thread but if there’s any evergreen red oak left for sale or trade I would be very interested.Even floor sweepings - wood, bark, or just some pillow stuffing.
Why ha? There are "live" (i.e. "evergreen") red oaks, such as
Quercus agrifolia --- California live oak, coast live oak, evergreen oak, live oak
Quercus crassifolia --- encino, Mexican live oak [UNCONFIRMED AS RED OAK]
Quercus emoryi --- Arizona black oak
Quercus sadleriana --- sadler oak, deer oak [UNCONFIRMED AS RED OAK]
Quercus suber --- cork oak
Quercus wislizenii --- black live oak, highland live oak, interior live oak, live oak, sierra live oak
I don't know the extent to which they keep their leaves in the winter, but they have the classification.
I thought he was kidding.....
I just got schooled.
Well, it's common to not realize that "live" / "evergreen" oaks come from both the red and white groups. The distinction between live and normal is external (leaves do/do not stay on in the winter) and the distinction of red-white / live is the way the end grain looks (very distinct)
Not sure what we have here, but our Live Oak are evergreen.
The white oak group.
Just coming home from my cousins memorial service and see the sticker in the mail. Did not know you were serious. Thank you, now to figure out where to put it...so many places...
I was going to say that it looks lie fabric.
You have to stop sweating the small stuff. No matter how much I pronounce the L in Les, people seem to hear Wes. I just roll with it now. It is fun 6 months later when they figure it out.
But Les is more yes?
I'm always serious except when I'm joking, which is most all the time.
But seriously, that wasn't a joke.
Why did the tree go to the dentist?
To get a root canal!
Now that's a joke....
