I went "to town" today. I caught some nice rides coming back from a local car show.

First time sitting on my pony. He is amazing. He took it all in stride and seems very relaxed during his training. Connie, (who is actually training both of us) is a terrific influence and an amazing teacher. People are sorely missing out on her skills as a teacher. More for me, I say!!

KC, how many laps does it take around that pen to equal a mile? That is cool you will get some saddle time now. You two will be inseparable soon and he will need some company when you aren't with him.

first thing I notice was his ears standing straight up. That use to tell me to be on the ready for something or anything to happen.

After Gsniper comment then I notice the cat.

I heat my shop with wood, but my house with propane. Like to do wood in both, but the wife doesn't want the mess. I actually enjoy doing firewood.

Firewood would be more therapeutic for me if Ma allowed me to build a wood shed and Lord knows I have been trying for 10 years now. No extra wood in garage or basement by the woodstove either. Maybe this year I won't even cover it and see how much she likes burning wet wood! This is getting old! This should be one of my "simple pleasures"!

I can't exactly say I enjoy it, but purchasing a 27 ton splitter helped me hate it a bit less....

I should have definitely put a this year caveat in there. I'm lucky working in the woods, I just bring loads home all year so it isn't quite as big of chore. Still the same amount of splitting and stacking though. I'm young enough that I find it faster to split by hand, but luckily only a couple more years till the boy can take over that part of it!

For heat it can't be beat. Nothing warms you the same after wallering around in waist deep snow all day. When we build our real house I'm looking at building a rocket mass heater or masonry heater. Hopefully cut down on the wood and I think they just look cool.

That was part of this years projects. I built a 40' pole shed that 20' is dedicated to wood. The other half I need to put a front pitch on and it will cover my tractor, mower, snowmobile etc. Now to get a roof on the animal barn before the snow flies...

Getting a roof on by yourself is no easy chore, either.

Being reminded what a bad ass my wife is. Last week, she found a copperhead in the yard. She stood on it while she looked for something to kill it with. The only thing she saw was a big rock from the drainage ditch, so she grabbed it and used it to beat the snake to death.

The Garden of Eden would have ended much differently had she been there instead of Eve...

My wife shot at one three times with my Beretta a few years ago. At about 15 yards, and never touched it. She has her very own 870 now.
