Re: What is a Ling?
Thanks for your response.
My first thought was that it might have been a crossed pair of tree "limbs"
that enabled a log to rest in the "V" for cutting. I have seen those but
have no idea what they are called!
Maybe after the holidays someone will come up with an answer.

Webster's New Universal Unabridged Dictionary defines "ling" as "common heather." But I'm not sure that is what you are looking for.

I've been thinking about this. Maybe a "ling", in this case, is like a
trellis; some kind of support for ivy, roses, or lilacs?
As an adolescent I aspired to lasting fame, I craved factual
certainty, and I thirsted for a meaningful vision of human
life--so I became a scientist. This is like becoming an
archbishop so you can meet girls.
