Blocking wood stings… just a bit.

Cutting firewood.
Firewood can sting.

With 14 cords left to block (and split), I’ve been trying to get some time in each evening to pick away at the pile. This evening I found out that I am not allergic to a wasp sting. One can really sting. Two is downright annoying. Getting stung 3 times would put anybody in a bad frame of mind. But I didn’t get stung 3 times, no, not even 4 times…



5 (@#%&^%@$ TIMES !!! The little ba$tard$. Not only did I hit a wasp nest, I was on the very top of that wood pile at the time. So it meant a quick and not so elegant escape which involved throwing the chainsaw in one direction while I fell off in another direction.

Careful cutting firewood.
You’d think after 18 months, the wood would be somewhat dry.

So here I sit, licking my wounds, and bruised shoulder from the fall. Could of be worse. Maybe.
