Thankfully, (to the dismay of my parents) I never caught the golf bug. I'd rather be building stuff (arbors, WFO's, cabinets, etc)

The shoulder isn't too bad; controllable with an anti-inflammatory, so all's well.
So... I get to buy cool toys like a hydraulic splitter, snow blower, etc.

Good one, I'll have to try that once I get fed up with splitting wood... at the moment I'm still too fascinated with it all.

You whack an enormous piece of wood with this enormous splitter thing (looks like an axe to me - I found it in the cellar, belonged to the former house owners and its nearly as big as I am) - and hey presto, the wood falls in two parts. Weird. Cool.

I'm sure the novelty will wear off though...

Yes Francis, the straight bits fall into halves with an axe or a log splitter, but try some of those other pieces with branch forks in them - a different story! If you will nibble around the edges with a splitter (or axe) you will reduce them to your required size, but with a lot more effort. A hydraulic splitter sometimes won't even touch them but they do make the job a lot easier (but come at a cost).

Either that or you are going to develop some really big muscles.
