bearing the person of Chris [ occasional professional David-Carer] who had elected to spend his day off committing a chainsaw massacre of the dead trees that he had chopped down in the goat paddock while I was in hospital, thereby reinforcing my opinion that he is an asset to the area.

Now, as Chris-and-Maz can attest, normally any chainsaw action around here demands my participation as chief-picker-upper-and-carrier-of-dead-tree-bits, but not this time – the recent hospitalisation and ongoing [slow] process of recovery, y’know. So I basically futzed around in the house, made soup for lunch and generally proved yet again that I am totally hopeless at sitting around while someone else is working.

The net result after four hours of hard work – with no contributions from the recuperating person other than the aforesaid lunch and some petrol money – was the transformation of part of the goat paddock from this
