In addition to watching our activities in the garden, Ellie has been further entertained by watching me perfect my linguine arm swing while trying to finish splitting the wood from a felled tree a few years ago. This was before the heat wave hit of course. There are just one and half 2 ft+ diameter rounds left! I thank my brother who let me use my dad’s old wedge and maul. We had to purchase a second wedge to rescue the first one that got stuck.

And now I have a fuller appreciation for that expression. But I digress.
