    ...people ask to see a picture of your children and you pull out your phone/iPad/wallet and flip past about 100 pictures consisting of your woodstacks, wood stoves, chainsaws, splitters, moisture meter, truck, chaps, trees you took down, funny neighborhood installations, lawnmower/ATV towing a trailer with firewood, other people's secondaries firing, jay's gf wearing pink carharts, and 14 different kinds of wood for ID purposes, and you finally find a picture of the kids to show them and it's a 3 year old picture of questionable quality.

    P.s. I really do have a pic of Jay's girlfriend, because I thought those carharts were the coolest thing ever and I wanted to show them to Mrs. Danno, who wasn't interested (can you believe that? Why wouldn't a lady love to have some of those?!?!).

    it's -4 outside and you decide that you should put shorts.
    --
    When a co-worked ask you how warm you keep your house in the winter and you say 80 deg.
    --
    The smell of smoke turns you on.
    --
    When the oil delivery man comes you laugh at him.
    --
    When you refer to Fall and Spring as shoulder seasons and know one knows what you are talking about.

    LOGS TO BURN

    Logs to burn, logs to burn,
    Logs to save the coal a turn
    Here's a word to make you wise,
    When you hear the woodman's cries.
    Never heed his usual tale,
    That he has good logs for sale,
    But read these lines and really learn,
    the proper kind of logs to burn.

    OAK logs will warm you well,
    If they're old and dry.
    LARCH logs of pine wood smell,
    But the sparks will fly.
    BEECH logs for Christmas time,
    YEW logs heat well.
    SCOTCH logs it is a crime,
    For anyone to sell.

    BIRCH logs will burn too fast,
    CHESTNUT scarce at all
    HAWTHORN logs are good to last,
    If you cut them in the fall
    HOLLY logs will burn like wax
    You should burn them green
    ELM logs like smouldering flax
    No flame to be seen

    PEAR logs and APPLE logs,
    they will scent your room.
    CHERRY logs across the dogs,
    Smell like flowers in bloom
    But ASH logs, all smooth and grey,
    burn them green or old;
    Buy up all that come your way,
    They're worth their weight in gold.

    When remodeling the house you choose wood floors over carpet just in case a weather apocalypse hits, you'll have 2800 lbs. of dry Hickory beneath your feet.

    You buy your children wooden toys for Christmas thinking they will outgrow them before the end of winter! and then you try to tell them that they are big boys now and they dont need their little toys anymore while you are thinking starter wood...

    When you figure out that if you stack some more wood over in that area it will mean less grass to mow. Yes! Now we can cut some more wood.

    Which is exactly why I haven't been on here much in the last couple of days.......

    3 trees fell over in the park behind our house, the neighbours tipped me off as they wanted to see how quickly I would rush out to drag them in ;-)

    When you have plenty of wood to burn and you reload the stove way to soon , just because you can.
