In the New and Freshly Turned Leaf on the Calendar—Thursday, January 2, 2020

We begin a new and marvelous adventure in the year 2020.

But, before we move forward, I thought I would show you an interesting little adventure we had with a log from the fireplace.

We had a log that was creating a huge problem for us, so we took it out of the fireplace, loaded it into the wheel barrel.  Terry then placed it in a bucket, which I filled with water.

Topping the bucket with a lid, we decided to leave the bucket in place until the holes in the bucket drained all the water out of it.

Mindy and Boomer were fascinated by this strange object sitting the middle of the road

I enjoyed watching their interest at this odd thing in the wrong place.

The next day we dumped the log out of the can, whereby I then had charcoal.  I waited until the log unfroze; took it into the woodstove, and had a long and glorious fire. A nice little gift.

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. uh, I don’t “get it”. I thought that perhaps you had a termite nest in that chunk o’ wood — when we have a fire sometimes whatever poor insects were inside get a bit warmer than would have liked.
