Post Thanksgiving Update!

Here we go! My Thanksgiving exercise! I can now do something I haven't been able to do for years, and that is splitting a log in a single swipe with a wood maul! For those of you that don't know what a maul is, it's a cross between an ax and a sledge hammer.

It weighs about 8 pounds and is a wonderfull log splitter. I'm happy to say, I left Uncle John well supplied with split firewood. What'cha think, do I look outdoorsy? I didn't take the bike because we were supposed to get a foot of snow and high winds, but it never materialized. Consequently, I only got 6 miles riding in this week. I did get several miles walking over the holiday. I behaved well at dinner, and only snitched a tiny piece of my cousin Cristies home-made pumpkin bread! It tasted heavenly and Cristie, email me the recipe so my wife can do a sugar free version of it! She'd love it! My stomach did well with the rich food and I had no complications and only ate a little bit, but it satisfied me thoroughly! TTFN, see y'all later!
ps: Note in one of the pics, the split half of the log still in the air tumbling off the chopping block!

Hey T. LOVE the pix. You look like a real "swinger". (Or should I say "splitter") Anyhow, glad to see you had a good Thanksgiving. Hope the rest of your weekend rocks, too!
