... Ūtgarðaloki: 'vel þykkir mēr Þjālfi ręnna; en eigi trūi ek honum nū at hann vinni leikinn, en nū mun reyna, er þeir ręnna it þriðja skeiðit.'

... the woodman, if he thought well of it, why, he just dropped the sled-rope without a word, pulled the axe out of the lashing, trudged up the hillside, holding the axe against his shirt underneath his parki, till he reached whatever tree his eye had marked for his own. Off with the fur mitt, and bare hand protected by the inner mitt of wool, he would feel the axe-head, for there was always the danger of using it so cold that the steel would chip and fly. As soon as he could be sure the proper molecular change had been effected, he would take up his awkward attitude before ...

Both mine had burst in my mitts: the first I emptied out, the second I left in my mitt to put into the cooker; it never got there, but on the return journey I had my mitts far more easily thawed out than Birdie's (Bill had none) and I believe the grease in the egg did them good. When we got into the hollows under the ridge where we had to cross, it was too dark ...

... I made the horrible discovery that I had been using my buckshot on the ducks and my birdshot on the deer.
