Way Back When

Alan Cutting Wood

Here’s Yogi, 1967, 43 years ago in Eagar, Arizona up in the White Mountains. We burned wood for heat in our house so brother and I got to cut it, split it, and then stack it. We didn’t have any chain saw we used that saw you see me holding in my hands.

We didn’t think we were anything special, that’s how most people in town heated their house.

The hard part was hauling enough split wood from the log pile to the house, every day.

We thought we had it easy with the wood. Where we lived before in Price, Utah we took turns shoveling coal into the automatic stoker that fed our furnace. If it was my night I had to hurry down after dinner so I didn’t miss my shows. You know Addams Family, Combat, 12 O’Clock High, Destry Rides Again, Fort Apache. You GenX people don’t know what the heck I’m talking about do you?

So, can you now understand why I am in the natural gas industry? It’s a lot less work heating the house.
