Wood hauled, trailer accident and a fun day away with the kids and grandkids.

We got up bright and early this morning and escaped to go harvest more firewood for the up coming winter. It is supposed to be long, cold and lots of snow.  We were only about three miles up the mountain road when our back trailer tire flew off into the woods and the trailer dropped on the the road with a jolt.  Mokie, I guess, had been honking her horn to try and get us to stop but over the nosie of the road we didn't hear her.  We ask why she didn't flash her light, she didn't think of it but Boy had, just a little to late.  The axle may be ruined on the trailer and unfixable but Poppie does work miracles sometimes.  We pulled the trailer to the side of the road and continued on our way we didn't want to waste the fuel and nice morning getting wood. 

We got to the wood cutting in site, cut down a total of five trees.  We were just finishing loading the last of the wood when Grandpa called to say he was coming to join us.  We cut up additional wood for him.  He arrived about an hour later and we load up his truck and cut one more tree up and we were on our way home. We were in the woods only about 4 and half hours so a good routine cut the work load down and the time.  We just arrived home and Poppie called his friend to borrow a car dolly to go get his trailer.  He is going to go get lessons on how to use the dolly, then I think Son is going to go help him collect his disabled trailer. 

We are going to get some veggie's from Grandpa that he didn't sell at the farmers market this morning.  I am sad that I haven't made it to the market since the girls went back to school but you can only do what you can do.  I am going to get Poppie a quick dinner and then he and Son will be off to their rescue mission, I hope it is fast as Poppie is very sore from cutting wood.  The kids, grandkids and I load it all and Poppie helps with the sawing.  Son and I help sawed as well, as did Grandpa. 

All in all we had a wonderful time, away in the woods, nothing is nicer than the beauty and quiet of God's wonderful woods......... tomorrow.
