Four months after we contracted with the local Danger Faller to take down the leaning-cherry-tree-of-doom, a cedar, a hemlock and some assorted weed trees – he actually showed up and did the job!  I guess that’s ‘Coast time’ for you.

Cottager, urchins and their friends have been having fun with axes and wedges, and there is still no shortage to be split. The menfolk come in glowing, having connected with their inner Dick Proenneke. And the urchins have always been fans of dismantling things, so reducing large pieces of wood into smaller ones is a natural for them, too.
