In Memoriam
Remembering Norman WOOD
Norm loved a challenge in his maple bush. There it was! A giant white birch, dead on the top, growing on the side of the hill, leaning toward the lake. The challenge: Fall it up the hill! Out came the rope, the snatch-block, the anchor chain, and the saw. The tree was roped, the rope passed through the block and fastened to the tractor. Norm notched on the upper side and proceeded to make the final cut. The rope was tightened while the saw roared on. The birch started to move. Norm signaled-- "Tighten the rope!" Suddenly, there was a crack like a rifle shot! The snatch-block had shattered, hurtling the sheave like some cannon ball of old, heading straight for Norman. Norm's trained reflex, shot him to the right and missile passed overhead. The ancient birch was left teetering on its stump. We took a long break!
Sincerely, Don Holmes
