    Well dang, I knew if we kept putzing around that old tree would just get tired of standing up, and just lay down on it's own. See it worked!

    -13 at the cabin today. I happily have other things to do so no hunting today.

    We are back to “regular” temps tomorrow with highs in the high 20’s to low 30’s and lows in the teens.

    My daughter is getting married Sat so I'm hoping for some nice fall weather. The reception is at a Manor House in the mountains of Thurmont. When we were up last week the leaves were almost perfect, hope they are not all gone Sat. Sorry Clarence, I wanted to stop by, but Carolyn said we didn't have time.

    Thanks. Her and her future husband both put their lives on hold while she got her Masters in Occupational Therapy, and Simon got his Doctorate in Physical Therapy. It's funny being around them, she's 29 and he's 31 and they act like two teenagers in heat.

    It is good news. I hope the future son-in-law is a good lad.

    I have sometimes wondered about congratulating people for things that they didn't personally achieve. Like this example, or congratulating someone for when their children have a child. Or is it congratulations for managing to raise your child to the point where they could have one themselves? Or for the new grandparent living long enough to see it? Maybe we just don't have a better word to properly express pleasure at the thought of someone else's happiness at an event somewhat removed from them, so we say congratulations. I dunno. I make no criticism, just a minor philosophical question.

    When I turned 40, I had several people congratulate me rather than wish a happy birthday - it struck me as a bit odd, it was almost as though they didn't think I'd make it :laugh:.

    I know what you mean, the cars I went through in my teens and twenties, I don't think anyone expected me to make 40. I think when people say congrats, it's not for the wedding, it's for all the extra space they will be getting to store more chainsaws.

    Technically woodpile pics I guess. Restocked the inside pile from the outside rack. I’ll refill the rack this weekend. First time transferring from rack to inside so it’s nice to know that there’s almost a 2:1 ratio.

    The term is also used to express good wishes on a special occasion. Such as congrats on your acquisition of another chainsaw. Ron

    I had 50 rounds from a good size hickory that I split into 16 pieces each, made 800 splits. So I’m guessing it was very close to a cord. Nice to know.

    I split up some scrounged peppermint the other day. It's green and for my brother for next winter so I split it smaller than I normally do to help it dry - it does dry pretty fast anyway.

    I told Cowlad that he needed to learn about the noble art of firewood stacking. He was happy with that. I told him where to do it (against the north side of the wood shed) and how to crib the ends, do it in such a way that it falls in on itself as it dries and to lay pieces where they fit like Tetris so there aren't huge gaps in there. So he started stacking while I split up some remaining rounds and chucked the splits up next to him.

    Splitting trash firepit fuel.

    He had the Spartan race on and got this much done before he had to get ready but there's stihl the main pile to stack and it is about 15m from the stack which is a bit of a pain for him when he can only pick up a couple at a time. I'll move it over next to his stack but I'm not interfering with his stacking. There's a bit under two cubes (maybe half a cord at best) in total to do.

    17th Nov 6.jpg

    That was yesterday. I'm having my first coffee of the day and the boy is outside on his own initiative continuing his work. It's 5.45am.
