    It all started with me retireing, and our 25th. wedding anniv.

    She thought that I would get bored with retirement. So she purchased a wood stove for herself, and a maul for me!
    This cutting, bucking, splitting, loading, unloading, stacking,etc.etc..etc..

    I think she has evil intentions..possibly trying to save the cost of a Hit-Man.

    I'm on my 3rd week into this beautiful???/ adventure, and my 2nd bottle of ibprofin.

    This kind of work puts teeth into the old statement "Dieing Breed"

    I think she wants to read in the paper.

    Poor Good 'Ole Boy Frank, was found died on the back 40 of his farm today.
    EMT pronounced him dead at the scene.
    Cause of death is uncertien at this time but was either

    Heart failure
    Multiple snake bits
    The 42" dia tree on him
    Or loss of blood from the chain saw cuts

    This world willn't be the same with out him!

    Have you checked your life insurance policy lately? Does it contain a clause that allows double indemnity for 'accidental death'? :)

    Acatually no. She wants you around longer but she wants you out of the house. Did you make the mistake of criticizing one or more of her soaps? That is a cardinal taboo. Of course you could be hoggin' the tv watching a soap different than she wants to watch!? There is a possbility that she has a rigorous "honey do" list she wants you to be able to do before your foot hits the bucket and this is just the warm up.

    I think your wife is trying to save on therapist's fees. You'll be bored out of your mind in retirement if you don't have wood to load, split and stack.

    Keep taking breaks and tracking mud into the house .
    If you're lucky she'll buy you a boat and a fishing pole.

    Seems like a good reason to build a nice wood shed with a little tinkering spot for you. Find a good splitter and saw and you've got a nice retirement with a good reason to have alone time when you want it.

    In MY house the wood game is co-ed. At least it is suppose to be? The other half of my co - ed team does not seem to show up all that often :-S She keeps going on about a full time job, look'n after the house and 2 kids blah blah....

    Oh well, as long as she shows up with a sandwich and a cold beer while I am working the wood, that's good enough for me. And it's nice (and a bit amazing) how she is always able to time her break for right about 2 minutes after I come back to the shop with the saws and splitter, just in time for a cold beer.

    When you start your Christmas shopping make sure you buy that splitter you always wanted, she'll understand.

    That is pure genious. But alas I have been enlightened several years too late but it don't mean I couldn't try for an improved model. (and yes I mean the boat. Who in his right mind would give up a wife like that??)

    Ya - definitely make it a point to ask for upgraded equipment for b-day / christmas, just don't make the mistake I did. Wife ask what I wanted for my birthday and I said a new wood splitter would be nice. Then I mentioned possibly if she was a tall brunette with nice legs and big.... Well, you can imagine that didn't go over too well.

    Monkey Wrench,

    You will know for sure if she sets up a meeting with someone that you absolutely trust, guaranteeing your safety.
    And at that meeting, you'll be assassinated.

    Good One !!
    I really don't want to loose this one. Took me 25 years to get her trained right!!!!!!!

    Any way I'm milking this project. New equipment so far and I will be adding
    New saw
    New 27t splitter
    New chaps
    New gloves x 3
    New winch for the Polaris

    I'm not even close to being finished . What do all think about a 4th saw? Maybe a ms290 or Husky 455.

    If you think you have her trained right, then she definately has you trained properly.

    I have one, and my advise is to not get one. Too heavy. If you have the moola, get a lighter saw with at least as much oomph, and put on some kind of NON-safety chain. You can thank me later.
