Burning Wood

Burning Wood

PostBy: SuperBeetle On: Thu Jan 03, 2008 2:28 pm

Well, here I am today home alone (except for the animals). :dancing: I am burnin' wood instead of coal. The house is warm and there are Carpenter Ants running around on the floor and the walls. There are wood chips and bark all over and the glass on the stove door is getting black. I have put wood in the stove for the 4th time and all is well except I need to clean up the mess before the wife gets home. The wood was "free' for the taking so, I should be happy. :yearight: Well, I'll be switching back to coal in a while but, I'll be burnin' wood again on another day :bag:

It's a good lesson in appreciation. You'll better appreciate that black gold when you get back to it!
