  1. I'm impressed that you get such a neat stack by simply tossing. Love Supervisor Johnny showing up. How long will that wood last you?

    1. It should last through December/January, depending on how cold it is. That was one cord - I'll probably get two more.

  2. Well done!

    I take "animal" breaks during long labors too.

    Do you ever worry about breaking the back window of the cab? Maybe I'm just paranoid, but I stress over it.

    1. Can you see me looking sheepish?

  4. OK....you are making me so thankful that while we may live in the country...our wood guy delivers and stacks it!
    You are amazing!

    1. I used to have a guy to do that but he seems to have disappeared this year.

  5. Johnny sees a new opportunity for hunting mice as they settle into that wood pile.

  6. Since you can deal with rattlesnakes, clearly spiders nestled in wood piles don't bother you. (Perfect song BTW). Aunt Jean

    Good workout! Hope you weren't too sore the next day. Many questions - Did you have to stack it ON the truck as well? Is firewood readily available in your area? Is wood your only heat source for the house?

    1. Yes, I had to stack it on the truck, too, but there was a guy handing it up to me from the ground. There's plenty of firewood available around here - the forest service gives out permits to ambitious people who want to cut it (but I'm not one of them). I have a regular furnace but I never use it. The heat from the woodstove seems so much warmer...and cheaper!

  8. Ronnie Milsap! Love him! Sure miss my wood stove, but don't need it so much here in Phoenix.

  9. I think you need to hire a "Ranch hand". You know....like a "pool boy". Then you can sit back, drink your wine, and watch.

    1. I'm all for that idea. Now if I could just find one.

  10. Cause for celebration when you get that truck bed emptied. At least a little happy dance.

  11. Hey! That's my job! Love stacking wood...and listening to music, but it took me two days.

  12. You are amazing and if these old legs would let me, I'd be climbing about as well. I wasn't yelling except to say "you go cowgirl". xoxo Oma Linda

    Your voice is too cute when you say, "I'm too old for this ****!" ha ha!

  14. You always keep me amused and with a smile on my face. Folks that know how to amuse themselves and have a good time doing it are hard to find...and you always have a good time too!

  15. I love how Johnny came to help you! My not-so-feral kittens now hang around the house and the female catches birds. The male (Junior) is a horrible hunter, so he just watches her. She's dang quick! He's too slow...He will help me, however, put out the birdseed! :-)

  16. I was beginning to feel *your* work in *my* back. What, I'm too old now for *watching*??
    Clearly, I need to exercise more - guess I'll be watching this over and over!
