Corky, my husband, smiled without his toothpick, just to please me. —–  He is turning those logs, from his friend’s yard, into boards, just for the fun of it. He uses that grapple to maneuver the logs, by himself, into position, then he uses a chain saw and a big guide to slice the boards.    ———-     That orange tractor, in the background, is what he uses to maintain the access road — The road, of which I posted a photo, did not exist, at all, before we moved here fourteen years ago.   These are only two of the activities he does ……for the fun of it.

   Corky and I have slightly different ideas about what fun is.
