DH's work buddy, Billy, recently got a new fancy BBQ smoker. He enjoys smoking ribs, brisket, and chicken wings. Since his smoker uses wood, he was looking for a wood source. DH struck a bargain with him; if Billy would come out and help DH with cutting and splitting wood, he could have a share of it.
Yesterday they cut up a couple of downed trees and they will split it in another couple of weeks. Due to last year's drought, we have plenty of dead and downed trees to choose from. In one day, the two of them were able to get more work done than DH could have done by himself in two. Here is DH cutting up a huge tree that fell down (we heard it!) this spring.
DH and Emma decided to take a break after lunch today. She likes to lay on the couch behind his head - he calls her his "hairy headrest."
