One thing I did a lot of; years ago, was chopping wood .
We did it everyday... even during the winter ... we just never seem to have enough wood .
We used wood like crazy.
Wood chopping wasn't a volunteering thing, No it was mandatory at our home, it didn't depend on the weather conditions either,or anything like that .
You just chopped wood and kept chopping.
I remember cold and rainy days...and snowy days... we chopped wood.
Your feet would be aching from standing in the snow, in shoes and socks wet for hours.
Your hands and face would be numb from the cold .
We sure could have used a modern day log splitter .
Chopping wood was definitely a hard way to provide heat for your home.
But there was one thing good that did come from chopping wood, it kept you in good physical shape.
No modern day gym was needed or anything like that to shed extra pounds .
You had a hardy appetite everyday, and you could sleep like a baby at night .
Wood chopping today has yielded to gas and electric heat for homes , but a few people are still willing to chop wood for their wood burning stoves and fireplaces .
I've had my share of wood chopping No thanks I'll pass on that one .
Until Next Time. God Bless.
