About 3 years ago Blue Eyes from CJ's Firewood dropped off the final 2 cords of our firewood, and today the planets all aligned so that I was home, Hubby was home, no one's back was broken, we started bombing the moon, the weather was good, there was no Elvis impersonator practice, and most impressive of all, Jimmy was taking a decent nap so we could finally stack it! We were pretty psyched, but also pretty surprised when Channel 8 showed up, presumably to cover the event.

I mean, I knew it was a big deal to us, to finally get the pile out of our driveway, but I didn't think it was THAT big of a deal! I was a little mortified to think that Southern Maine would consider it newsworthy that we were finally picking this huge mess up, that our wood pile was so blightful and such an inconvenience to everyone in the region, but ultimately I think I scared the newsguy away with my camera, he drove off after "pretending" to check out a mild car accident at the corner. Jeez, slow news day, Channel 8????

But we're stacked up for a warm winter with our wood dry and cozy under the Jethro wrap. More happy fall, y'all!

Wow. Channel 8 showed up right there on your doorstep! It's like life came full circle for you in that moment, huh? ;) =D

Heeee. Seriously, I was like "YESSSS!" that it was Channel 8, I don't think I would have even taken the photo if it was 6 or 13.
