i spent the weekend at "the farm" cutting & splitting firewood and upgrading the bunkhouse kitchen floor with ceramic tile.

"the farm" is a place with no interwebs & very, very little cell signal. because of this one of the guys helping me brought with him something called a "cellular signal repeater". "this", he said, "will increase the "Gs" zooming around in the air to a degree that we can get a better phone signal here at "the farm."

"get out! get out right now & take your witchcraft with you!", says me.

my knees hurt. my back is sore. i am refreshed.

Thanks for the vicarious calm.

when you spend much of your week staring at a screen --- it's nice to look over your shoulder and say --- "i did that."

Did you split them by hand or did you use a machine?

Swinging an ax is good exercise, especially if itís a Fiskars (Finnish) ax Smile

Splitting wood is one the *the* most satisfying chores on the planet.

I love hearing about these farm days.

this one is older than me and doesn't have any, what one might call ... safety features, but it is brutal on a log.

Backwoods.
Spotty communication with the outside world.
An axe being swung through the air.

Do you know how many horror movies start like this?
All it needs is a group of horny teenagers camping nearby.

does that make me the crusty old groundskeeper who you THINK is the killer until the end when he saves the last scantily clad camper from the REAL killer?

Bish, your comment reminded me of this classic spot:

Wise and sane decisions do not a horror movie make!
