Gathered winter fuel
Photo: Rev David Long (Sony SLT-A65V)
A lot of dead ends in those crates now Rev.
Hope you have a fireplace or wood stove.....that's enough to keep you warm for most of the winter
Have you been a busy fellow!!! Your back garden must have been very badly overgrown, well done and you have the pictures to prove it, cheers!!
What no critters?
This will save on heating bills, Rev David !!
You didn`t reply to my comment on 16th Dec.at 08:04 on your P-a-D 15th Dec.`12.
Did you gather them during a cruel frost on the feast of Stephen.
Interesting photo Reverend,don't log off yet!
Didn't know what that was all for until I read the description - then it twigged :)
I'll log that one down to experience :-)
That (woodn't) last long in this weather!
Stop it you fellas you are driving me insane with laughter!!!!!!
Given the level of the humour, Lizzie, I think the folks here should stick to their roots - I don't think they should branch out into a career in comedy. In fact, I think they should take their bough now, pack their trunks, and go off for (a) rest.
The wood, of course, is for next winter. It has to be seasoned before it can be used as fuel.
Like you Dave, this one had me stumped until I read the caption. It looks like the Rev. is branching out into the fuel business. Perhaps we should all take a leaf out of his book!
Esau Wood sawed wood. All the wood Esau Wood saw, Esau Wood would saw. All the wood he saw, Esau sought to saw. One day Esau Wood's wood-saw would saw no wood. So Esau Wood sought a new wood-saw. The new wood-saw would saw wood. Oh, the wood Esau Wood would saw. Esau sought a saw that would saw wood as no other wood-saw would saw. And Esau found a saw that would saw as no other wood-saw would saw. And Esau Wood sawed wood.
I need to get up earlier - missed out on all the puns now but that oak-ay. Firs fir in love and war! Well I ash yer! (OK I will go back to bed)

Love the comment about enough wood to last all winter...would last about a week up in the northwoods across the pond here. It's just done 24hours blizzard conditions, whiteout snow, reckon that wood pile could have been burned today. Lol
All I want is a room somewhere,
Far away from the cold night air.
With one enormous chair,
Aow, woodn't it be loverly?
Lots of choc'lates for me to eat,
Lots of wood makin' lots of 'eat.
Warm face, warm 'ands, warm feet,
Aow, woodn't it be loverly?
Apologies to Lerner and Loewe

Well done Rev, a man who cuts his own wood is warm twice ....
Lizzie, I woodn't like to leaf you in the bark, so I should tell you that the above loverly lyrics come from the evergreen musical My Fir Lady.
Told you this could go on for ever......
Norm..... My Fir Lady........
Read it in school...... Pygmalion....... :-)
Lizzie, if you liked My Fir Lady, you might also like another arboreal musical, Oaklahoma.
Or a nice film......
The Thomas Crown afir......... Cheers!!

A Merry Christmas to you and your family and all the very best for the New Year xx
