I agree Rick....If your wife & kids try different techniques that don't require that much strength, they should be able to do it & you can just supervise!
Hope your back heals quickly & things get back to normal for you brother!!
My wife and daughter have been trying but it is too much of a struggle for them. They are both very small in stature. My wife is 5'2" and my daughter is 4'11" and I don't know what they weigh but it can't be much over 100lbs. So when you weigh 100lbs a 25lb bucket of coal can be a struggle. I think it is best that I shut down so that this issue does not break out into

until recover where are you in western PA you can PM me the info if you do not want to give your local .Or get a Neighbor to help out .
No one close. And I don't have many neighbors (only 2 within 1/2 mile) We are kind of hermit like
My parents live about 5 miles away and I am sure they would come and help me out but they are in there mid 70's so a bucket of coal would probably be a struggle for them also.
It won't kill me to stop burning for a week or so.
