"Gathering Winter Fuel..."

After the day we had yesterday with the car problem we were about to relax and start our evening meal when the door bell went... Buzz Buzz... who on earth is that at this time of day?..

Ahhhhh a trailer load of wood was really the last thing we wanted BUT what can you do?? We accepted and it was duly tipped in a heap adjacent to our wood stack and sheeted up...
