Upper Body Workout - Splitting Wood  
Yesterday I replaced the axe handle (well, technically, replaced 2 axe handles, as I stupidly put the head on upside down the first time and didn't notice until after I'd pounded in the wedge) and sharpened the blade. I split some wood and we had a fire in our patio bowl last night.

Today, instead of going to the fitness center two days in a row, I'm going to spend an hour splitting more wood. Much more fun and actually useful - and it works many of the same muscles I'd be weightlifting with anyway.

I wanted to get a fire pit for our back yard but there is apparently some bylaw in our area against it but if you use it to roast hot dogs it is classified as a barbecue and Ok. Am I weird or is this just silly? Hope you are all doing well Bill and will we see you at OVFF?

If you run out of wood to chop, you can come visit me. We had a short but severe storm Saturday night, and now we have downed trees all up and down the streets in my neighborhood.

Also, the power is still out, so your hand tools will come in handy.
