clues at the scene

While beauty and mayhem are weaknesses of mine, the wood at hand is not so stunning.

Squirrel gathers nuts. I gather wood. The squirrels are working overtime up here. It is a good acorn year. The turkey are fat. I suspect it will be a long wet winter.

I'm stacking some wood I had delivered (cheating) in case I don't get enough of my own cut and split. I still have to cut and split it. I have a woodstove and so cut to length stuff is not a reasonable purchase. Sawbuck and maul makes a good Saturday under the Noway Spruce trees.

I only smashed one finger quite solidly tonight in the lantern light. Good thing I type like a chimp and have nine others who can do the job.

Off to read and recover a bit.

Poe, actually. Thanks for asking. "The Pit and the Pendulum" last night. Tonight ? Perhaps  "The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar."
