    When you get a few years on the old bones, nothing feels better than a good fire on a cold day and a shot of JD:big_smile:
    What’s up with the price of fire wood? Some of these guys in my neck of the woods are getting $125.00 a rick for split oak….last year it was $65.00.

    I was on the water at 7am Sat morning. I had to wear the coveralls and i'm glad I had them on.

    Fished for about 4hrs then threw the net for some shad before leaving and froze the hands doing that but caught some nice shad.

    And caught some nice crappie up to 13 3/4" long.:wink:

    Thanks for the post. I have a wood burning insert in my fireplace and it provides 60% of our heat. Has for years. I love backing up to it on those brrrrrr cold mornings. :wink:

    I just lite the first fire of the year about 10 mins ago:cool2: last year i cut hauled and split just about 7 cords of wood. It gave me something to do while being laid off and not being able to fish, so it wasn't bad I enjoyed it really.:big_smile:

    We use wood heat exclusively for our house. I always cut my wood, oak and hickory, a year in advance so it will be good and dry for winter. I have several wood heaters. I have a 'Golden Oak' parlor stove in one room. It is in perfect condition but rarely used. Then I have a 'Fatso' laundry stove that I use occasionally. Then I have a 1/4 steel boiler plate heater that is our primary heater. I can load it with wood and cut the draft down and it will still be full of coals in the morning. I once considered buying up antique heaters to restore, but gave up on the idea due to the collapse of the economy. Here are pics of a few of my heaters.

    I cheat, we have a pellet stove in our house. Like it a lot and have less mess than what is involved with operating a stick burner.
