#1231: AF on the road 2

Tonight my sister lit a fire in the wood stove in the kitchen.  I guess that’s late summer in Maine.

As for me, I’ve been sleeping a lot.  I don’t know if that’s because of the altitude (which isn’t that damn high) or what.

Well, today I dug out their chain saw and went to work on a big tree limb that fell alongside the driveway some months ago.  I got about 30% of the thing cut and broke the chain saw.

In my defense, the recoil starter for the chain saw is part of a relatively flimsy plastic cover.  If I could find that part, I could fix the chain saw in about 10 minutes.

Still, my sister is pleased with the results of my efforts—the tree limb is a lot less visible than it was.

I guess that’s a help, anyway.

But after that, and a shower, I hit the sack and slept all afternoon.  *sigh*
