Yesterday I was chopping some wood when some visitors to the farm walked by to see what I was doing. I explained that the machine on the back of the tractor had a worm that bored into the wood and it split, “Just like this…”
I threw the small axe over my shoulder,
“Won’t need that!” I said getting bolder,
I put the large log onto the splitter,
“The downside is – I don’t get fitter!”
The worm bored into the trunk of the tree,
I struggled to hold it in line with my knee,
Then all of a sudden with a relieved laugh,
The tree trunk cracked and split in half!
When they had gone the next three logs were excessively difficult and I realised then that a demonstrators job is never quite as easy as it looks!
