Up early with a little hangover

Up early with a little hangover

PostBy: coalnewbie On: Thu Dec 15, 2011 5:21 am

TV is soo boring but yesterday was a great day.

Years ago when I started this quest for a better heating source my neighbor was laughing. He inherited a plastics factory from his dad and has always had ALL the toys. The oil truck got diverted from filling up the factory to his drive, not a bad deal. Simon, you are crazy says he - of course I had just just been richer I would be eccentric, but when you are poor you are crazy - sigh. Yesterday was pay back.

Three days ago I think he had a chimney fire that burned itself out but I am not sure. Now everyday mysterious smoke is belching from his chimney. Chain saws a going , little new JD tractor yanking wood from this forest. Went on for hours. So a little tailgating with a few beers, forget TV and the big games, this was seriously interesting. Should I be a Christian and say something? That would be the nice thing to do after all. NAH, not me. So the Mexican guys that help out occasionally in the barn were invited up for a Christmas burger and beer. So on went the BBQ. The bleachers were a little hard and I got a little drunk but we had a GREAT afternoon. So, who votes I should say something to him even like don't burn damp wood - anything????? I mean I just collected 5 charity horses who were dying in Texas (there are millions of them), so I do help disadvantaged things..... I would help a three legged dog in the road...I feel mean... Hope the rain doesn't spoil todays show! I'm fresh out of burger buns - damn.

Ok Eric, you shamed me into it. I mean I was going to be rained out today anyway. After 15 years of dealing with the man I can tell you he don't listen to a thing I say but OK I will try. Party pooper.

I have the same show every weekend. I have some neighbors that heat old homes with woodstoves, and they spend nearly every weekend cutting/skidding/splitting/stacking firewood. Every morning I know exactly when they get up and load the stoves (the big plume of smoke gives it away). The best part is that my house used be the #1 account for the local firewood dealer that lives just down the road. 40-45 face cords per year is what the previous owners went through. Now there is no more deliveries of wood, no more smoke, and no vapors from the fuel-oil chimney in cold weather...I've caught some of the wood guys looking at the chimney when they drive by on a -15 morning, but I doubt they have figured out "my secret".
