Free Wood!

I just came home with a load of free wood!  It’s a win of the redneck lottery!

There’s more but I couldn’t haul it all.  The trailer’s axles couldn’t handle much more weight and I’m going easy on the tow rig’s pathetic brakes.  It’ll take several trips to get it all.  That’s ok.  Slow and steady wins the race!

Oak firewood for winter. Exxon-Mobil can kiss my ass!

Some of you might be complaining that the wood isn’t truly free.  I had to purchase gasoline.  And there’s wear and tear on the saw.  Plus my not insignificant contribution in labor.  Good points all…but lighten up!  A hefty workout and a gallon of gas is nothing compared to the check I’d have to cut for home heating fuel.

I’m gonna’ stack this stuff and jump on it like Scrooge McDuck.

Life is good!

    Sweet! And you’ve got a log splitter, right? Absolute sweetness. Jealousy – I’ve got access to lots of free wood, but nothing remotely in that diameter.

    • I have a log splitter. It is the best thing ever! I am ever grateful to have it. I write poems about my wood splitter. I sing to it. A hydraulic ram is what turns processing firewood from “misery” to “relaxing exercise”.
