Doc Deals with Cold Weather

Winter is setting in and every morning now my wife has to knock ice off the water pump. That’s not so bad. One year it was so cold the fire froze and we had to wait for the sun to come up for it to thaw out. We kept warm by rubbing an iron rasp against the flames. I had an idea and started whittling off pieces. I was hoping I could mix them with a little Wizard Water© and sell them as genuine “fire water” at twice the usual price. They unfroze, though, before I could stuff them inside any bottles.

Real fire water's too dangerous to make. But if it had worked, I could have given the local brand of white lightning some strong competition!
