the next part of my life...
It's a wood splitting mallet used with a V-shaped piece of iron (a wedge) in a log and hit is with the mallet. You can see the wedge sticking in the top of the log to the right of the mallet. He'd rather be reading than working. LOL
WTG, Jean. You are correct!
You both are wrong and Barb nailed it on Facebook. Rail splitting is what he did.He also loved to read.Have a fabulous day honey. Big hug to you and my very best to Roche. ♥♥♥
Yes, I see the wedge in the top of the log, and the mallet for driving it further into the wood - when he finished that chapter. I'd rather read than split logs, too!
It's not Lincoln. It's a young Gregory Peck. Lol!
Like Lincoln, I'd rather read than split logs...or most anything!Big hugs, honey..
I did not nail it on Facebook - Google nailed it. But it IS a mallot, and why the heck couldn't he hit his croquet ball with his mallot? I mean after his log was split and his book was read, of course. In his Stubbs and Wootton croquet boots.Next problem?:)Happy Friday, dear friend. xoxo
Bee, I say Lincoln is reading instructions on the game of croquet.LOL. Blessings, xoxo,Susie
