My wife says to me the other night,'' you never hear any stories that begin,there once was a rich woodcutter''
Wonder why that is.I know everybody here is rollin' in dough.
We're getting an early start on cabin fever.It's been raining here for three days and I couldn't even spell been w/o help.

I personally know of a guy that started with a splitting maul, a chainsaw and a pickup truck.  Sold and delivered firewood.  Later, bought a dump truck.  Kept at it until he had millions in land, buildings, equipment and steady private and government contacts.  Takes the right person, with the right skills  in a good buisness environment, but it does happen.

The second million is easier than the first.  So, you should start there. :)
