An Ax to Grind

I've got some hardwood I need to split into chunks for the smoker, so yesterday on the way home from work I tried to buy an ax. Here is a list of stores who do not stock a 2.5 Lb. wood-handled ax:

Home Depot
Miller's Rent-All
Sky Nursury
Dunn Lumber
Fred Meyer
Aurora Rents
Aurora Mower

I finally found my ax at the True Value store in Greenwood, a mere 12 miles, and 10 stops, from where I started.

I've got a new favorite nickname in pro sports. John Marshall, the Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator referred to Darryl Tapp as "A Rolling Ball of Butcher Knives". If he can live up to that imagery the Seahawks should have a pretty good season.
