One of Dave's favorite hobbies...and I'm really not kidding...is sawing, chopping, splitting, and stacking wood! There are few other things he'd rather do on a day off than be outside, rain or shine, taking care of his wood pile.
Unfortunately, it's going to be a while before he can do that again.
And double unfortunate...we just got a HUGE load of logs from the forest service delivered to our house that need choppin'. Dave's been wondering what he's going to do about that.
To the rescue today, came his good friend Mel and a whole crew of good men to help him out!
They arrived at 8 this morning and started in on the logs piled down at the end of our road. The forest service guys couldn't bring them down our lane a few weeks ago due to the extreme amounts of rain we've had this past month, making the road too soft for the logging truck to get in and out. Our neighbor was kind enough to let us dump them on his land at the time.
Mel, Petr, Dusan, Bogdan, Szymon, Caleb and Noah all started in and worked HARD on that wood!! What an operation it was!
I'm so bummed I didn't get out earlier when they were all here to get pictures...was busy making food for them, and then mowing the lawn (a job in and of itself in totally marshy, swampy conditions in our yard!).
Mel, Caleb and Noah stayed at it ALL DAY, building up some pretty major muscles along the way! They were joined in the afternoon by all the guys serving as JV summer interns!
Couldn't help but be blessed today by our friends, old and new. Thanks to all who served us, gave up their Saturdays, and made a BIG dent in a huge pile of logs!!
