The Burning Times

So we've been plugging away at the burny stuff this past week; and we've managed to make another entire pile of wood disappear. Yay! And, go us! Though, really, go Tara! as she's the one who did the work.

Tara got down to the bottom of the woodpile towards the south; that just leaves one more pile of wood, which she claims might actually contain some usable stuff, though I have my doubts. And when I say the bottom, I mean down to the dirt and, of course, the ubiquitous New England rocks. Though, really, some of that wood was rotted enough it was hard to tell what was wood and what was dirt. Plywood is not normally moved with a shovel, is it?

At any rate, though, look at these glorious before and after pictures! First the panorama:





And then the view from the south:





It's getting there!

you had a fire or two...I hope you had a s'more or two to go along....

Have you considered contacting the local high school for the wood? I know of many that have bon fires during homecoming football games. Make them come get the wood and store it. That way, it's off your property.

Or maybe the local boy scouts or girl scouts, for their camps....they might be able to take some of the burnable stuff off you hands.

Looking very good by the way.

It sure looks like hard physical labor, but the results of a clean house and yard will be so respected by you, your family, and your neighbors!!!

Tara's biceps must be huge. _huge_

As usual, you what you guys get accomplished is so inspiring.

Thanks for the encouragement everyone; it is really, really helpful.

Donna, Tara's pretty strong, though you might not guess it looking at her; however, I have a feeling it's more to do with those energy drinks she swears she is *not* addicted to.

Ah well, they say the first step is admitting you have a problem...

Although really, I've got no business complaining, have I? :)
