The Dude

The Hydraulics Anniversary

Over the years, Weatherdude has not been one to observe tradition in terms of what anniversary year it is and what he's supposed to give me (or me, him). Alas, I say.

However, I have been reliably (?) informed that the 28th wedding anniversary is the year of hydraulics. In the form of a log-splitter, delivered on the correct day, this morning, at 10AM. My old-fashioned, manual, log-splitter will be partially retired, along with his wedges and maul, and the gas-powered hydraulic one will do most of the woodpile work this year.

What did I get? A fleece-lined hoodie to keep me warm while I stack or split wood.
