    Everybody is lighting up so it is time for my annual thread. I'll start it off.

    You know you are a real wood burner when you comment at a wine tasting that the Chardonnay is oakey with just a hint of creosote.

    Congrats on your new 18' split/new born.



    You are a real world woodburner when your 5 year old asks why the oil delivery truck never stops at our house.

    When you are standing as the bus stop with your 6 year old. And your child says, "Daddy, why do you always look at the woodpile? You should be looking for the bus..I can't miss the bus"

    or....when your six year old needs a show and tell item that starts with "w" to bring in to school, and your wife says " you cant put a huge log in his backpack " :)

    your mother-in-law calls to tell you about the free wood she saw on the side of the road that you should pickup. (guess she wants the grandkids to be warm this winter...)

    And when you're wife catches you checking out your neighbors oak..... man that sucker could give me two cords....

    You keep checking the thermomoter outside and the thermostat inside hoping both readings are low enough to "fire it up".
