...on the firewood front. First, the good news: we finally got some. Delivery had been expected in August, but it was obviously delayed. Now we have to stack it and then Walt will start cutting it. It rained a good part of the day yesterday, so we put the stacking job off until today.

Then the bad news: our wood supplier is getting out of the business. This will be his last delivery. He's a man named Jean-Claude who we've known for at least ten years — he used to do yard work for our neighbors. I guess it's retirement time for him too. Now I can start the firewood saga.
