    But do you get distracted when you find an interesting item or a piece of wood you had forgotten about and then go and turn it? I know that is something I tend to do

    Likewise. I even mowed the neighbours one. No hurry. Good to see the sky without condensation trails like scars.

    What do you think Derek?

    I did throw stuff away though and this is the result tonight. It's been burning for 90 minutes, was twice this size at it's hottest and will probably still be alight after breakfast tomorrow.

    Wallowing in wood is catching with up to 12 sheds and literally tons of it a testament to the hunt over 40 yrs..Desperate circumstances here at the moment demand attention to mere survival.It is a total offence of major proportions to burn anything outside ,this in spite of the worst pollution a short while back with record breaking atmospheres from the fires.Disposing of rubbish is by weight and totally expensive,an old mattress 80 dollars tip fee.Our population is around 400,000.Yesterday 36 spanners in one bucket with 30 to empty and put away.For me balance is crucial so I have to sit and sort slide and pack away.

    Sorting out my garage/workshop to make it more user friendly and somewhere I won't mind spending more time in seeing we're in for a long haul it seems.

    We go into a 3 week shutdown today.
    Have to stay at home with very restricted movement to get supplies.
    As I cannot get to customers or look for work decided to make a few pens.
    Got a blank out of the store. Label says "Br???? Mallee Burl".
    Any idea what the smudged letters are?
    Hard as hell but looks like it will make a nice pen.
    Thanks
    Phil
