    I had dinner going, house smelled awesome, kids complaining that they were starving. I told them to gear up; hats, coats, gloves, boots. I saw a single confused look echoed across 6 faces. I simply said, "If you boys plan on eating tonight, you're gonna earn it." Ushered them all out to the driveway where they were met with this....

    It's all neatly stacked in the shed and on my side porch. At least they didn't go to bed hungry.

    If you listen to them tell it, they came damn close. I'm pretty sure the neighbors thought I was mushing dogs though.

    Look at all that fire starter. Why you cutting all your wood down to kindling size?:confused:

    Unless you have one of those old cooking stoves with the small doors, then I'll give you a break. I remember my Grandma's stove...we cut short and thin for that, we'd have had to split yours some more, for her.;)

    I've got a smaller wood stove in the basement and a fireplace on the first floor. It's just easier to have it all split to fit the woodstove.

    Unfortunately, I'm the only option for doing the firewood duties around here. Falling, bucking, splitting and stacking....

    At least I get warmed up several times with all the different steps!

    You need to advertise it as lumberjack crossfit, and charge idiots to do all for you! You'd get rich! You could be the next Richard Simmons!....

    I don't know. He's been here with us for a few years now. He's pretty well trained. I'm training him in the ways of the bachelor. And not the kind that has a different chick for each chore either. When we got the kid he could barely tie his shoes without a tutor and a 4-hour study session.

    So you've instructed him in the dark arts of Top Ramen, and Banquet pot pies?

    He will learn...... I remember post divorce, construction work out of town, I could eat for a full week on 20$ or less..... Heck, didn't have a choice..... Pot pies for dinners, cheapest baloney, cheese, bread I could find for lunches..... Ahhhhhh, what fond memories!...
