We were gone yesterday as the trees were taken down. I guess it was best we were not here. We had legal business and then went for lunch and free pie. We got home to see the war zone they had created.
The reasons they used to eliminate them was that they were diseased. They were very healthy as you can see by the cross section cuts. This mess will be cleaned up this morning and the stumps will probably be removed also by the end of the day.
This tree was growing probably back during World War 1 and has seen many changes in families who have lived in the neighborhood. I took pictures to honor the last of these old trees as I have seen them everyday since I moved onto the property in 1976.
We go to do our taxes this afternoon right after I get done working at school. We will be glad to have that done one more time. I won't have to pay in this year. The school doesn't take much out of my check anymore so we won't have as much money come back to us.
I am working the concession stand again today. That will last through 5th hour and then I go to 3 different classes in the afternoon. It makes for an interesting day. I hope all are well out there and thanks for stopping by today.
