 The Best Chainsaws of 2022 - Best-Selling & Top Rated Chain Saws

A True Parable


It once so happened that a great thunderstorm blew through a certain pagan festival. In its aftermath, it was discovered that a tree had fallen and crushed a tent beneath it.

(Fortunately, the tent was empty at the time, and no one was injured.)

A certain man, a forester by trade, then—with parental consent—instructed the festival's teenage boys, his own son among them, in the safe use and handling of chainsaws.

In no time at all, under his careful supervision, the fallen tree was cut into billets that, when duly dried, will feed the fires of future festivals.

“Dude, that was awesome!” said the teenage boys.

Poet, scholar and storyteller Steven Posch was raised in the hardwood forests of western Pennsylvania by white-tailed deer. (That's the story, anyway.) He emigrated to Paganistan in 1979 and by sheer dint of personality has become one of Lake Country's foremost men-in-black. He is current keeper of the Minnesota Ooser.
