The Lumberjack's Beard by Duncan Beedie

Big Jim Hickory is a lumberjack.

Every day, he awakes next to a forest, in a little log cabin, and he completes his morning routine: Limbering-up exercises—it's very important to limber up if you're a lumberjack. Jim also has a hearty breakfast of pancakes and maple syrup before he sets out with his trusty ax and heads into the forest.

CHOP-CHOPPETY-CHOP! Jim's ax echoes at every tree he cuts.
