Big Stick, Little Stick

Mr Uphilldowndale and I were amused by the following sign.

sticks for sale

You often see logs for sale, and occasionally  Kindling, but never sticks, it’s obviously a gap in the market someone has decided to plug.

I wonder how big a stick has to be to be classified as a log, or for that matter how small does a stick have to be, to be a twig.

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

  1. But does he sell carrots as well?

  2. I’m so curious, exactly how large are these sticks…?

  3. How intriguing! Sticks come in such a wide range of shapes and sizes I wonder what these are. xx

  4. Is the notice leaning against one of them?

  5. They call logs ‘sticks’ up here – perhaps a displaced Scot?
