Here in Mexico it's very common see sawmills in the street near of the Puebla city.


When I go to the forest always, I get trunks with my Grand Cherokee Laredo.

It's likely when I'm Jeepeando.


There's a word for translate the word Jeepear in English.


I thank your support.

That reminds me a joke (humor negro typical Spanish ). I'll try a bilingual version :

(At the hospital)

- I've been told that my friend Juan has had an accident. I'd like to see him.
- Yes -said the doctor-. He's lost their legs and their arms. But don't mention it to him, because he's very sensitive now.
- Oh! Don't worry, I won't tell him anything!
(he enters in the bedroom)
- ¡Hola, tronco!

Hey - I understood it.

This reminds me of a similar situation: man wakes up in hospital.
Doctor: 'There's good news and there's bad news'.
Man: 'Tell me the bad news'
Doctor: 'We have amputated your legs'
Man: 'Then what's the good news?'
Doctor: 'The patient in the next room wants to buy your shoes'

@Lou Ann:

Amigo: Supe que mi amigo tuvo un accidente. Quisiera verlo.
Dr.: Claro. Perdió las piernas y los brazos, pero no se lo mencione ahora, está muy sensible.
Amigo: No se preocupe, no le diré nada.
(Al entrar al cuarto)
Amigo: ¡Hola, tronco!
