D is for Dang Desperate

Okay, so last Wednesday Sonshine and I were heading out to the Thrift Store to find prizes for my contest. We did find these:

A Hawaiian leprechaun??
How cool is this? Pretty darn cool, that's what

Though, both were way too large to use as real prizes. Anyway, before we even got there my sis and I passed a real interesting person on the side of the road.

There is a white smudge in the distance...

Now, you can't see it (which is probably a good thing because the dude would probably sue me), but there is a dude pulled over on the side of the road. Wanna' guess what he was doing? You never will, I promise you. He is sawing wood. Yes. Wood. And not with a chainsaw either, and not some big hunk a' wood. He was taking branches as thin as my wrist and cutting them with a very small hand-held saw.

He must've been pretty desperate for some firewood.

why didn't he just put the sticks in his car and cut them at home?
Who drives around with a saw?

Hehe yep, I've seen people pulled over the side of the road, but with chainsaws.
There have been times I was desperate for firewood, but not that desperate. You see all sorts of things up here in Alaska. People even camping on the side of the road in summer. Yep, its legal.

@Falen: Wait?? You don't have a saw in your car?

@Caledonia Lass: Chainsaws I can understand. Hm. Weird. Anyway, but it wasn't even cold. It's finally warm outside.

@Teebore: Haha! If it had been a large knife I would've been thinking of Locke.

I want a Hawaiian leprechaun...NOW!

you should have drove up to the guy and that's not a knife, THIS is a knife and then pulled out a machette with a big evil smile.

@Palindrome: How did I miss your comment??? I totally should've, but my people ban me from carrying around sharp pointy objects :(
