SuperBob

Our friends Matt & Liz from our old life in Merry-land visited us this weekend.  *sigh* We love them.   Anyway, it was a short visit, but we managed to force a trip up to see the log house, as we do with anyone we can wrestle into it. 

We showed them the gassification wood boiler



I made Bob pose for a picture with them by the southeast corner of the house:


They discussed chimneys and spiders and such:



And then The Hubs geeked out on them wood-wise and showed Matt how to use the sawmill:



Here Matt tries his hand (it actually takes closer to 4 minutes to mill one board, not including positioning, but I truncated it a bit ...zzzzzz...):




I've known it for years, but Matt and Liz now think of Bob like this, apparently:

We haven't seen them in MONTHS and they travel all the way THERE? Harrumph. But I'm glad you got to see them anyways. Really.
