    Therapy my ass

    If you need help dealing with the stresses of everyday life or if you're depressed or blue screw therapy and listen to me.

    Spend 200 bucks and get a cord of unsplit wood dropped in your driveway

    then buy a 10 pound splitting maul, an axe and a couple of 5 pound steel wedges and get to work

    I guarantee by the time you're done with splitting and stacking that cord of wood, you'll feel a whole lot better.

    Now I have to get back to therapy before i kill you all.

    There are some people who need therapy who I would not like to see holding an axe.

    I agree with Skull, good, hard physical labor can cure many a thing, be it feeling blah in the mind or in the body.

    Good advice from Mr. Skullpilot. When the children were young I would grab a shovel and start working my way through the back yard digging up weeds. You can hack, shovel and beat dirt all day long and it helps it grow things better the next time you decide to plant in it. If that did not do it I'd borrow a sledge hammer and an axe from the neighbor and beat the heck out of something I wanted to cleanup and get out of the yard. We had this old storage cave that was caving in and needed to be removed. It took about three times of major frustration to fully eliminate the darn thing and when it when it was gone and fill in with all that dirt I shoveled the kids had a nice place to play

    I have an in with a tree guy too but not everyone can do that and I can't always get all the wood I need from him.

    But I love splitting wood. I do have a gas powered hydraulic splitter but I only use that for the real nasty knotty pieces of wood all the rest I swing a maul or axe.

    Just think if you did take my advice and split a cord of wood you could sell it and buy another. Then you could cancel your gym membership and save some money.

    If the benefits of hard physical exercise could be got from a pill, it would be the most prescribed medicine in the world.

    We hauled some trash to the dump one day years ago. There was a little old man that was there when we got there emptying his small trailer. We got everything off the pickup and the trailer and went over to see if we could help the old guy. He said, "No thank you, I'm 98 years old and my birthday is next month. This keeps me young. I may be slow but I'm still going." I believe he was right. We need a certain amount of physical labor to keep our reactors going and the fire burning so to speak.
