for dad

My dad's pretty hardcore when it comes to working hard. I remember when we were kids and we'd go out to 'help' him clear a tree from somewhere and the working day would seem to last forever.

But even Dad didn't go to these lengths I think:


Keen to get wood cut in a bizarrely un-snowy New Year holiday where we miraculously didn't have other obligations K got stuck into chopping wood while I carted it around from the front carpark.

He started in the morning and stopped for lunch. Then kept going in the afternoon before taking a break to go shopping with the girls and I. Then while we made dinner he kept chopping until finally when I went to call him for tea I found him chainsawing by torchlight.

I reckon not even Dad got that hardcore.

Mind you the sun doesn't set at 5 in Australia either, huh?

That's pretty damn hardcore alright.
Hope he was wearing steel-toes. One slip in the dark and you could call him nine-toes for a nickname.

Chainsaws can be rather unforgiving.

Still, I have to admire his enthusiasm and that awesome pile of wood.

Steel capped boots and a baby chainsaw. And you and dad would cry (or at least sniff in a moved manly way) at the wood we burn- apple and cherry and a bit of pine and cyprus for oomph. Mind you splitting the apple and cherry if you let it dry first and you probably really would cry!
