    Should have never accepted this load of wood. You should have seen the look on wifes face. Time to sharpen up the chains

    I don't see anything too scary there. Rome wasn't built in a day, and neither is a wood pile.

    A splitter will take care of the ugly ones. They don't look to overwhelming from the pictures. They left a lamp for you to work at night.:oops:

    Never mind your wife, I'd be more worried about the critters you have hiding in your wood stack, you can see the light shinning in there eyes in that night shot.

    Hire a couple of teenagers to help you knock it out. Maybe having to pay out some cash will learn ya.

    Been there. Neighbors were having 2 locust trees cut down, so I got the tree guys to drop it on my lawn for free. Certainly looked like a lot less when it was still in the dumptruck.

    I don't get it.
    Most wives like money.
    Tell the wives who have a problem with all the wood in the yard that all that wood means the propane, oil, electric, nat. gas bill will be almost nonexistent because of it.
    If that doesn't work, and thats all it takes to piss 'em off......well, adios, I guess ( I know, easier said than done).
    High fuel bill or free wood in the yard.......hmmm. No-brainer here.
    Must be I'm just lucky to have a wife who thinks like I do and enjoys the warmth and savings.
    Nice score though.:cool: I guess you need to get crackin' on that.
