HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EACH OF YOU
We've made it another year and now it's time to see what life has in store for us in 2011 - I can hardly wait to find out.
And what do a couple of old retired guys do on a 43* winter day to end the year – why split wood of course. In our younger days, this could have been a one person job and the entire pile would surely have been split in a day by two young bucks. Actually, in my younger days I would have split it with a wedge and maul, just for the excercise (which I still should be doing). My buddy, Joe, still does - which is why he's in much better shape. But, this day, us old guys could only work about 2 ½ hours and we got almost half the pile. This is what’s left (still about 60% of it), including the tree limb that fell on it. The big ones are about 30" across.
We went from cold and snowy for Christmas to 60* and sunny on New Years Eve - made me want to plow and plant my garden.
Bev and I hope the coming year is your best ever and thanks for taking the time to stop by Almost Heaven South - I don't know if I'll make 365 posts again in 2011, unless I can find some new material - perhaps I'll take up sky diving or underwater basket weaving.
