thanks to all the Crazy (yes, it warranted a capital "c") wind we've been having, i've got my share of branches strewn about my yard. then, because the yard is fenced in, all the branches have nowhere to go but...here. great. at least i found this great stick that had the perfect spot to carve my name. it took awhile to do. mostly because i didn't know what type of tool to use so i just grabbed a square-headed screwdriver and went to town. i do quite like the result. it shall be my stick from now on. and if someone says to me "you can't have that stick! it's my stick! it's not like your name is on it!" i will reply "yes. it is."
