Prior to four years ago, for a period of six years I spent a lot of time working in the forest on my property and the neighbor’s. During the spring, summer, and fall I would spend the vast majority of each day cutting firewood from fallen trees with a chainsaw.
Today I cut up a large hickory tree that had fallen across one of the paths. Tonight I am paying the price for not considering that I had built up some endurance cutting every day that I no longer possess.
Now, it’s time to retire and hope my muscles forgive me.
