    I'd rather be "lucky" than "good" any day. Talk about falling into a pile and coming out smelling like a rose. :lol:

    Edit: the Gas Co. no less.....that one has me scratching my head.

    You have to love free wood that is delivered and ready for the splitter. It looks like there are a lot of BTUs in that field as well.
