Here is Second Son, splitting wood the ‘old-fashioned’ way with an axe. We have a splitter that we normally use, but every now and then, we both get a yen to go old school with it.
So, I guess you have figured out that I’m opinionated. No, it’s true – I am. Just ask me. There are a handful of other things you should know about me so you can put this blog in context. Here they are.

- Serenity first. Acceptance second. (a.k.a. Some things just yank my chain too damn much.)

i agree that is aold fashion way to cut woods..great entry for this week entry..;) Mine is here take a peak if you have time.. 😉
WOWY – that is some old fashioned exercise!
I used to do that a lot when I was a teenager living in Mississippi and my Momma wanted to fire up the fireplace. We didn’t have a splitter. *I* was the splitter! And only armed with a somewhat sharp ax, too, I was sent out to do battle with what seemed like an endless supply of uncut firewood and lighter.
Anyway, thanks for visiting my and my PhotoHunt entry.
I was always afraid I’d chop my foot off (at least that was my excuse) with an axe. Thanks for stopping by my photohunt post too.
Hi!That is really old fashioned and tiring.
Way back, that is one way to show a man’s love to a girl.Cutting woods for her.
Nice to have a son who will do the work for you. I tried to chop up an old Christmas tree and ended up in the hospital. Not with the ax, but by straining my muscles I gave myself blunt trauma — dead blood cells and had to have surgery to remove them. Ugh!
That’s hard work! Good photo.
wow, that’s definitely good ol’ fashion hard work too!! 🙂 thanks fro dropping by!
truly old-fashioned indeed!!!! 🙂
Must be having a real powerful pair of arm
In the days when we had wood fires we had to do all our own splitting. To tell the truth I didn’t know there was a less old fashioned way of doing it 🙂
Figure that the old-fashioned way of splitting wood could be a great way to release aggression/relieve stress! ;b
Now that is old fashioned, but several members of my family still do that. It’s also hard work.
Some “old fashion” things still work very well! That’s the way I have split wood all my life. Thanks for visiting my post.
It’s always more fun to do it the old fashioned way BECAUSE you do have a splitter. Otherwise it would just be work! Thanks for stopping by my PH.
That’s definitely a good way to exercise! 🙂 Thanks for visiting my PH.
That’s good exercise too huh? Great take on the theme!
Thanks for stopping by mine!
