After work last night we drove over to the Our Way Cafe, got ourselves some take away for tea (shepherdless pie, steamed carrots and veggi creamed corn for me) before heading home to watch cable.
Then followed an evening of sofa slouching, munching and general laziness. Ed did not come out to play at all.
It was so good to actually get a clear picture for once. No ghosting, crackling or ants nests. Fantastic.
Amongst the gems we watched was the Outdoor Games on ESPN2. For our viewing pleasure we were provided boom running (a race back and forth across floating logs), dog agility, the shotgun competition and my favourite, the lumberJill’s Timber Endurance.
These were scary women competing against each other in a timed race to:
A) chainsaw through a huge log
First they take the chainsaw down through a 16″ diameter hunk of timber, and then they bring it back up the other way.
B) underhand chop their way through another log
They have to stand on top of a 11″ log mounted in a stand and use an axe to chop between their legs until they are halfway through, before turning around and completing the chop on the other side.
C) single buck
An event where the women had to saw through 16″ of pine using a six-foot saw.
Clearly a New Sport for Lynsey
Me? I’m going to sit and watch some more telly.
