I must say I was gabberflasted about how many public, and personal
messages I got regarding finding some wood ash.
There are a bunch of VERY nice people out there. I got responses from
Georgia all the way to Hawaii from people offering to send me some of
their wood ash. As serindipity would have it...I found a local source
just MINUTES after making my post. I had had a hardwood cherry tree
removed from my backyard two years ago, and had givin the wood to an
elderly man with a wood stove, well apparantely he had let it
dry all this time and is only now beginning to burn it in his home.
He was MORE than anxious to let me have all the ashes I want. So I
don't have to bother any of you kind people. Thank you all very much.
Hmmmmmmmmmmm that worked SO well..........ahem. I've also had a
great deal of difficulty locating MONEY. None of the local banks have
any period. Soooooooooo if anyone has
any EXTRA money laying around, (perhaps buried in your wood ashes),
let me know...:)...no go huh?
How about "I have 50 billion dollars in a Nigerian Bank, and its ALL
yours...", still no go? ....sigh, its back to the wheel.
