Built a cabin in the UP. 10miles of 2 track the 6miles of dirt rd to to the blacktop. Way back. Anyway set up the stove & long pipe because of the cathredral ceiling. Built a big fire, we're all happy until I heard a creak & look up to see the top pipe unlocking at the joint, then the whole pipe fell down. Had to carry a very hot very full very heavy stove outside. Funny now, not funny then.
"The things that will destroy America are prosperity at any price, peace at any price, safety first instead of duty first, the love of soft living and the get rich theory of life." Theodore Roosevelt
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same. - Ronald Reagan
