Fall is here early feels like, and I need to take advantage of this decent weather to bring in some wood. I usually keep a season or two ahead in the wood-pile but with all the storms and electrical problems we had this year I burnt through the entire contents of the wood-shed. Firewood is not as easy as you may think to find out here, and I should have been working at this a long time ago, but during the Summer it was so dry it was unwise to work in the woods, anyways it was too damn hot. Then it got too wet to go out for wood. Then along came that little matter of the heart attack I had a few weeks back. Oh I'm OK, not much of a story there, it came on while chasing a bear out of the yard. I got a ride in the back of an ambulance to the big city and a stay at Vancouver General for a bit. They stuck some little part up in there and turned me loose again. Like I say not much of a story there and I'm as good as I was before, but it sure interfered with some Fall projects I had planned.
Oh bastard. During one of my numerous tea breaks I left the thermos on the rear bumper and backed away. I heard a couple crunches as both wheels went over it about the same time I noticed it wasn't on the seat next to me.
It didn't break inside, and the flattened out cup is actually easier to drink out of I found.
I brought in and split two of my little pickup loads over a couple sunny afternoons and didn't fall over dead so it looks like the old heart is good for go now. That's a good start and I'll try to half fill the shack over the next few weeks if the weather holds.
