    OK. Most have fired the stoves so it is time for my annual thread. I'll start it off with an old one because I have run out of new ones.

    You know you are a real wood burner if you don't have hair on the back of your hands from October to May.

    You know you are a real wood burner if you get upset at the site of heavy fallen wood on someone else's property!

    You know you are a real wood burner when your wife tells you "you didn't do a very good job at cleaning up YOUR mess".

    When you notice the draft difference between an outside temp of 20 F and 36 F.

    You know you're a real wood burner when you get back from a 10 day trip and the first thing you do is shovel a path to your wood stack.

    You know you’re a real wood burner when you check the New Posts on the Hearth forum, before you check your e-mail.

    You know you are a real wood burner when you go to work because it's easier than cutting.

    When you come home from work, and while you were gone, your wife (who also works) has cleaned the house, washed, dried, and folded 3 loads of laundry, made dinner, helped the kids with their homework, decorated the tree, lost 10 lbs, painted the den, and tiled the backsplash in the kitchen...and you say "Nice Fire Baby...it's reallly putting out a lot of heat!" ..........And she smiles ....a real smile.....in fact, she beams.

    You are also a real wood burner when everybody at work knows not to get between you and the door at quitting time because the house is going to be cooling down by the time you get home.

    You know you are a real wood burner if you can tell your friends you've been tying up fagots all day and they don't even raise an eyebrow.

    You know you're a real woodburner when you get to work and everyone says "no I didn't see any trees down today" before they say "HI".

    You know you're a real wood burner when you follow the power company trucks when they do their annual tree cuttings around power lines.

    You know you're a real wood burner when you from time to time accidentally replace "would" with "wood" in your posting on hearth.com.

    You know you're a real wood burner when your whole day is planned around the burning cycle of wood and, when it gets warm, you have no idea what to do with yourself with so much free time on your hands.
