My Sunday …

Was spent helping a friend clean up after the latest round of storms that went through Saturday…

Called me Saturday night and told me what happened..

So Sunday morning I loaded the chainsaw up and assorted equipment and headed off.

To this..

This was after we spent hours clearing branches and piling them up along his woods..

The Basswood fell into the Oak, which had fallen across his driveway.

Oak was about 125 years old.

Lots of good firewood there..

I’m a bit sore today…

    In the days gone by, I used to heat with wood. There is a great deal of satisfaction in getting wood cut up and split and ready for the coming winter. A sense of security perhaps.

    Helping a friend with this kind of work is probably the biggest testament to real friendship there is.

    Who would voluntarily go to someone’s house and then work their ass off for untold hours knowing that there will be aches and pains afterwards for more than a day or two? A true friend. These days people like this are hard to come by.

    Basswood is nice for carving. Fine grain.
    They used to make mouldings out of it.
