The Necessity is the mother of invention principle.
You are looking at a stick-bundling machine that Bossy’s husband built from old, free scraps of wood — and can something still be referred to as a machine if it just sits there not doing anything?
In any case, Bossy’s husband threw this thing together, which allows one to place a plethora of errant sticks until it’s full, and then bundling with string is made simple and effective.
This saves time and energy and sure beats Bossy’s old system of stick-bundling, which involved throwing the sticks under the neighbors Holly tree. Hi Kate and Len!
