Planted a seed, we'll see when/if it produces

So, we'll see. Maybe I'll get a hydraulic splitter sometime in the near future. Then, she'll figure out that splitting wood, even with a hydraulic splitter, is a lot of work, then I'll be back to doing it myself, WITH a hydraulic splitter.
(I have a similar story of how I obtained a power washer earlier this year....)

A few years later she came with me to haul wood for a guy that did it commercially. He'd built a hydraulic machine that cut and split it all at once. Henry would cut and split the wood and I'd pile it with the loader. When there was a delivery, I'd load it in my truck with the loader too. My wife was about white with fear when she saw he operation, sure that we going to get killed. It was about the safest wood-cutting operation I've ever seen though.

Don't forget to fertilize (BS works well), water (fluidly work it into conversations with her), and plenty of sunlight... (mention to ALL her friends how much you're looking forward to working with her... and the splitter).
