I think it was 5 across and 10 down of the smaller stamps, but the women took care of the gluing and pasting; so I am not very sure.
Guess it was a woman's job. Dad sure never sat around gluing stamps . Lol
We're just sitting around watching hgtv and wondering about all those expensive homes. Ouch.

Been out helping the grandson unload his truck load of firewood that we had cut and loaded earlier today. I don't need the exercise bike around here. LOL
I guess load'n and unload'n isn't too bad,.....unless ya gotta split it all with an ax! Yeah, I remember pulling the logs up from the woods with the tractor, crosscutting them, then come the splitt'n. Dad had no chain-saw when he had four sons. But then I shod horses till about 17 years ago. Don't know if all of that is what's wrong with my back or what caused the back to last as long as it has. Either way, I'm very fortunate so far.(knock, knock)

@ Anne.......I've often wondered what the covered wagon people used while crossing this country. Then, a little later, say in 1860 +-, what did the cowboys use or was toilet paper invented by then? May be that they carried along a barrel of cobs.........NOT!!!

OH YEAH..........about changes! At the home place in ILL. in the basement we had a big, round coal burning furnace. In the "front room" upstairs was the fireplace. We'd take the ashes and spent coals to the chicken house path in coal buckets and dump them there to help keep it "paved." It really worked pretty well. The path curved around the end of a big (potato !!#&%!!) garden plot then on to the chicken house, oh, maybe 250 feet. Now, all I do is turn that little dial on the wall.......and pay the gas bill.

Well,....just ignore the second half of my post second from above! It's amazing what you can get from a "search!" Toilet paper, as such, was invented in 1391 by China in large size material (with splinters!) In 1859 a similar product was continued in New York. In 1880, Scott's refined it, rolled it, eliminated splinters and added the 2-layer style. In between times, ANYTHING was used that was in or about a man's extremity from rocks to "hemp" knotted rope ends! "We've come a long way, Baby." ..(this is my dedication to 2014 !!!!!)

@MM.. We do most of the splitting with a maul and a wedge. Sometimes when there is enough to justify going 10 miles after the hydraulic splitter, we use it. Still a lot of work just loading the logs into the splitter. Fortunately, the old cross cut saw now just decorates my back barn lumber wall Cracker Barrel style with lots of the other old tools from days gone by.... ice pick, tobacco knives and spears, hog nose ringers, horse hames, kerosene lamps (that still work and are full of lamp oil), the old dipper from the spring house, fire place popcorn popper, duck decoys, and such. Next year, I think I might raise some gourds just to use for dippers that can be dried and painted with different art work and maybe even white-wash a few tires for flower beds. Mom always white-washed (lime) the trees up about 4 feet from the ground and the fence posts. I suppose to keep them from rotting. Lime was also thrown down the toilet hole and there was a 5 gallon bucket of lime dust in the outhouse.

I do not have a little dial on the wall and that is why I am awake now at 2 am. Besides the dog needing some tree time, the wood stove needs some more wood. Thank Goodness there is coffee LOL I don't know your answer on what the cowboys and pioneers used for TP, but I always thought their saddle bags and bedrolls might have contained some old rags. Besides Montgomery Wards and Sears catalogues and corn cobs, our outhouse had a box full of rags and a Karo syrup bucket full of water mixed with Witch Hazel for making home made "wet wipes".

@MM. I would imagine leaves came in pretty handy during the summertime and great care was taken to pick the RIGHT leaves. Lol. My friends grandmother kept a stack of neatly folded rags, cut, sewn, and pressed, yes, PRESSED!, in the bathroom. We've also got to remember wet baby wipes are fairly new and that's a whole other situation.
@AW. Our next door neighbor at the last place we lived (a subdivision), heated with wood. His outdoor furnace was in a leanto on his garage. His ample wood supply was stacked among the trees next to the garage and covered with a makeshift roof attached to the trees. Once a year he would buy a load of logs and, using a chain saw and splitter, prepare the winters wood. Our lot had way too many trees and he was happy to cut them for firewood. I want trees and I enjoy the woods but those sweet gum tree balls knee deep in my back yard? No thanks!

There is a story (probable lie) about an old guy who was squatting near a 3 strand barbed wire fence using leaves, His finger went through the leaves and got messy. When he went to sling the mess off his finger, the finger hit the barbs on the fencing. Where did his finger go next due to the pain? You know, of course. LOL

Always preferred cutting black locust in winter. Splits easily and burns readily. But save whatever would make a good fence post, they make the best!

My neighbors future son in law has a wood splitter but mostly uses an ax. He is as strong as an ox! But we worry about him overdoing and ending up with a messed up back. This past year he cut a tremendous amount of firewood and sold every bit of it. He's a great guy to have around and he works fast ...and cheap. Does good work too! His number? BR549 . Lol

It's a day for keeping active and happily busy, whether you're pottying about at home or completely involved in a high-powered dump. You'll bring a lot of energy to whatever you doo doo, and it will be highly enjoyable as well. If you're at a loose end, consider bringing a friend or neighbor and suggesting that you both go together or have a night on the town. You want to live a little!

Imitation is the sincerest form of flatulence.
