Whatever can he have meant?

R was telling her brother, M, about her wood-burning stove, and the deal she'd done with a tree surgeon friend which provided her with a more or less unlimited supply of logs.  Just then the summons came to go through for supper.  As we climbed to our feet, M caught my eye.  "I wish I could get wood whenever I wanted," he muttered.


  1. Was ever woman in this humour wood?

  2. To attempt a coherent answer I think we need to know the other side of the "deal" R had done to get unlimited logs. And M's needs in this regard, also.
    Logon, please.
