A quick post this evening after a day spent in Ballingate cutting sticks. Dad, my brother Joe, and I killed two trees today. We cut one up and felled the other to dry out for later. I took a boot load of logs in the car back to Dublin. While we did work hard today, it is a great thrill for me to spend time with the two lads, and forage for winter fuel at the same time. The timber we cut today will be dry enough to use for another few months. Afterwards we adjourned to Conway's in Kildavin for a couple of very nice pints. Exhausted!
