A brand new log splitter!
Now you might be thinking, "ATM, that's pretty "redneck" getting all excited about a log splitter.".
I agree. That IS pretty "redneck". But hey, after 25+ years of a sedentary, but stressful career, I'm pretty happy getting out and doing laborious work.
I paid for my college degree with thousands of gallons of sweat. I think every child going to college ought to have to work a hard, grinding outdoor job for at least one Summer and pay for that year of school.
It sure as Hell would make them appreciate their parents and the value of a dollar.
But I digress.
While I was over in Delaware something caught my eye.
He was cute sitting there with the others. The red, shiny coat just melted my heart.
I tried to walk away. My legs wouldn't work.
I tried to look away. He kept staring.
I tried to think of what I was supposed to be doing in the store. My brain wouldn't budge.
I had no choice but to adopt him and bring him home to the farm.
Ladies and gentlemen, meet "Splitty the Maul".
I told you he was cute.
How cute? Look at this:
Splitty jumped in the front of the truck so he could ride "shotgun".
I don't know about you, but where I come from, that's cute!
So now you might be saying, "ATM, with a 27 ton hydraulic log splitter, why the maul?".
I'm pretty damn good with a splitting maul. The log splitter works on most pieces, but sometimes you have to get in there by hand.
Sort of like girls in that way.
Besides, as I stated above, after a quarter century of working inside, I'm pretty happy working up a real good sweat.
I think Splitty and I are going to get along just fine.
Now, for your bad pun of the day. The picture was taken on the Delaware river in front of the Riverview Inn.
"It takes a Hell of a lot of gull to say that.".
I told you it was going to be a bad pun.
