"The sword of Elendil was forged anew by Elvish smiths.....And Aragorn gave it a new name and called it Andúril, Flame of the West."
Yes, I know, its not a sword, but he did forge it anew and he'll use it to strike the most menacing tree stump!
once upon a time zander became seriously upset with me because I forced him to haul away two chunks of pine trunk from a neighbor's trash pile. "I wasn't raised this way, Leslie!" whatever that uppity comment meant.... i don't know what triggered it, but all summer long he scoped people's bulk trash to see if there was any good wood. And nearly every day after work you would hear that trusty ol' axe swing and crack. Up at Oak Creek Zander spent a whole day chopping up firewood and hauling it out of the canyon muttering about how much money he is saving. ha ha ha. he is definitely a guy who would rather let his hands do the work instead of his wallet. except with cool, electronic gadgets.
