have you ever thrown an axe around splitting logs? did you find it uniquely satisfying when the axe hits just right and splits a thick bole like butter?
I've had the chore of splitting blocks of wood for kindling and for winter's firewood
and i can never say i took any satisfaction in throwing an axe for sport or for any other purpose other than splitting dead wood.
I used to be employed by a rancher in northern California and the experience was like the deep south but without the accents.
Loved the work and the people (who didn't display their racial bias)
Who would be the 1st person You'd call if Your car broke down in a neighborhood that is racially bias'd against the color of Your skin?
(actually happened to me many years ago........)
