Your saw rides in your truck more than your spouse does!
It's funny someone said that. Nevermind Sunday drives, I do it all the time while driving. If I see a downed tree, limb, a pile of rounds, stacked wood etc I am looking. If my wife sees what I'm about to see before I do she'll say "oh no"...
I wanted to take pics of the wood piles in this one yard the day we went to Rickets Glen...but the fella was out in the yard...he did not look like he wanted me photographing his wood...
I find myself checking out people's wood piles all the time.....what the hell is happening to me dammit? It's you people doing it to me... :lol:
Good one. Nice laugh to start the morning.
You allow a 2" tolerance? Wow... you are too generous
:lol: :lol: :lol: MINE TOO! :lol: :lol: :lol:
When you hope the global warming folks have it wrong and that the global cooling folks have it right so you can keep on burning!
When your stressing out about not having a recent scrounge and no clear opportunities coming despite being 3+ years ahead
When you are trying to buy a new house and you pass on the perfect home just because you can't see where a stove would go.
when i started washing and waxing my stacks and wondering if they could use an oil change
Only reason I allow +or- 2" is I run my own tree company and I do not have time to do it the right way.... :smirk:
When you have a perpetual scar on your left forearm from touching the stove on reloads.
When you can maintain your home plus/minus 1 degree from your ideal temp.
One step further, after seeing whatever it is that caught my attention I think; ' I wonder if that person is on hearth.com'
When you spot a single wood split on the side of the road that fell out of someone else's truck and stop to collect it so it doesn't go to waste.
Ive debated passing out flyers, stuffing them in woodburners mail boxes. Then i think it may get used as a firestarter and i stop there. Have considered knocking on ones door to ask them about that stellar woodshed they have.
I've done that. The wife, "What in world are you doing?" Me, "I'm afraid some car will hit that and cause an accident."
Wife - calls sister on the phone..."
My neighbors all refer to me as "The Wood Guy".
Yup, I get that as well.
"So, you're the guy with those huge piles of wood...... right in the middle of the lawn?"
"Guilty as charged."
Funny thing is I never have that much wood on hand compared to a lot of folks here, maybe 6 cord is the most I ever had at once.
you show a woman your wood on the first date.
You ask a woman about hers before asking her on a date...
You drive 5 hours to hang out in a factory parking lot with a bunch of people that you met on the internet to drink beer and talk about wood and stoves...and then talk a few more hours over more drinks and dinner.
and you "plan" next year's shindig.....fill the freakin trunk with booze dammit....
when you go to sleep at night, you put a note under your pillow, Asking the wood fairy's to bring some primo wood in rounds. So you can split it without sweating to death.
You call the power company & report some trees that need cut because they might fall this winter so you can get some easy fire wood.
They come & fall the trees. They are within in a few hundred yards of you wood shed & you miss out on getting the wood because you went moose hunting.
The stumps & sawdust trails where the rounds were cut are visible every day.
Now you feel depressed & even got a moose.
(I can't wait for the snow to cover the evidence. 6 birch trees & 3 spruce.)
