Yesterday my wife put in some firewood in the house and was muttering after a pile of wood fell on her foot. Last night I tried to get my fire going at 1 AM, but it went out after I went back to sleep and work up at 3 AM and it was 61 in the house. Fooey with that, so I started burning coal, and now at 6:35 AM it is 10 degrees outside and now 78 degrees inside, a 17 degree rise in 3-1/2 hours!

Anyway this is what she muttered. Does anyone want to continue the conversation...

I never dropped coal on my foot so hard it hurt
I never got a splinter from coal
I never had to work with coal a dozen times

I never hurt my back lifting a bag of coal onto a wood splitter
I can shovel coal out of a snow bank and it will still burn
I never worked overtime to pay for coal

I never termites, carpenter ants or other insects in my coal.
I never have to get up in the night to feed my boiler with coal.

I never have to worry about not having my cellphone seeing a connection when I used to be out in the woods dropping trees by myself. :D
I never have to go to the chiropractor again nor suffer back spasms. :mrgreen:

I never have to unload it one piece at a time for the customer and restack it in the basement or backyard for them.

I stand there with a smile on my face while coal rolls out the back of the hopper bottom and up the conveyor belt into the bin!

:D

With coal, I never had to kill mosquitos in the house everyday up until about Christmas because I stored wood in the warm basement. :evil:

Not one bug of any kind in 13 years of using coal. ;)

With coal I'm never afraid to walk out in my back yard and not be able to see the neighbors house thru the thick cloud of smoke. :lol:
