    Wood will split itself if you just drop it.

    Just spoke to Denny. 231 loads of wood since 1/1/18. He is completely out of dry wood and is delivering wood now that we cut in September. Thanks to all who help keep Burnett County residents who need the help warm
    during this brutally cold weather!

    Kudos to the crew who made it to Denny's last weekend. The last of the wood on the west side of the driveway has been processed. It's not the best quality stuff and will be distributed next to people who need it.

    On a more serious note Denny has spent most of the week in the hospital. After the workout in the woodpile he had no gas left in the tank. Tests were ran but no answers yet. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

    Spoke with Denny yesterday. Says he is feeling a little better every day but they are still not sure exactly what is going on. They have ruled out the Big C word so that is a good thing!

    We will try to work the woodpile again on April 7th-weather permitting. A good share of green wood was delivered when all the dry wood was gone-but a couple more days should put him in good shape for next winter !

    And to hi-jack my own thread our Open House at the shop is scheduled for Saturday April 13th. Would like to make it a mini AS reunion/GTG. I am currently working on bringing in a special guest (AKA Wendell)!!!

    Plans are still on for Sunday. Weather may come into play but time will tell. Breakfast in Siren for those who can make it. We'll try to hit the woodpile by 8.

    We are still planning on making this happen tomorrow. I will post as early as I can tomorrow morning if we are going to cancel because of the weather. It is going to be muddy so plan accordingly!

    Left a little before 5 AM yesterday morning after checking here and the weather. Ended up finding out from Chris (Pele) in Siren it was canceled (only have a flip-phone yet). But I made the most of it and had breakfast at the Gary's in Siren and took the scenic way home and investigated the old Soo Line/Wisconsin Central RR line through Dresser/St. Croix Falls with the leisurely drive home. Considered it a primer for the trip up to the open house this next weekend and the Iowa GTG end of the month. At least the '08 Chevy is easier on gas than the '01 Dodge was...

    Duane, Chris and many from their church league softball team put in a big day yesterday "working the woodpile." We are going to try to put the crew back together on Sunday May 5th and try to get at least one more days work in before the heat and the bugs take over!
