FUN STUFF! About six hours of my Saturday was spent out at the family cabin, cutting up the large pieces of the trees we recently had cut down.

It was nice to be doing real man’s work for a change, away from the office and all that paper-pushing business. Sweating, heavy rolling, strenuous lifting, throwing wheel barreling—all of it made for a good day’s work.

At first it was quite odd seeing trees that had been there for my entire life suddenly gone. Some hired hands did the climbing and cutting. Fortunately for them, the trees were not spiked by eco-terrorist wackos. Nor were there were no greasy, wild-eyed protestors living up in those trees before they people we hired cut them down. Or if there were, those poor souls would now be buried beneath the remaining piles that we have yet to split.

Anyway, the most exciting part would occur when we’d roll up a BIG piece to the splitter and see if we could cut it in half on the first try! After one successful spliting, I thought to myself: "It's just like Solomon splitting a baby." Only then I remembered: "Wait! He never actually split the baby!" (I looked it up: 1 Kings 3:16-28.)
