How NOT To Top Trees

Yes, there is a process.  In fact, there is a CORRECT process.

Years ago when I attend COVERTS, there was a chainsaw demonstration.  We learned the proper gear to wear, and the "dos and don'ts" when working with chainsaws.  If you don't believe me, Google it.  Here's a few sites I came across:  Ladders and Chainsaws, and then there was Trees, Saws and Ladders.

RANT!  RANT!!!  RANT!!!!

Now I know you're going to tell me that the Pres is a good guy.  And he is a good guy.  However, last Friday, when we talked about it being a good day to "top" a small (about 35 feet) Elm, I told him to give me a minute to go in and pee and I would be out to help him.

Well as you can see by the photo, this is what I found when I stepped onto the deck.

Inside and Out

The day I left for Acadia was a busy one.  Going to get my haircut that morning, I naturally told my hairdresser (who I tell everything) that I was leaving that afternoon.  He's so sweet.  After hugging him "good-bye", he handed me a package of snack mix "for more energy that you don't need." 

When I was in Massachusetts, it was still hot and humid (94 degrees).  However, by the time I drove through New Hampshire and into Maine, the temperature dropped to 73 degrees!  Seeing a speed limit sign of 70 mph, I cringed.  The reason?  There ahead of me, the skies had turned almost black with huge storm clouds not far from me.  Suddenly a bolt of lightning up ahead and although a haze engulfed nearly everything, I felt adventure in the air.  Seconds later, I saw the first "Moose Crossing" sign.

Meanwhile on the home front, while I was gone, I had asked the Pres to water the houseplants.  On Friday night, I called him and said, "Have you watered the plants?"

His response was so "him"...quick and deliberate."No, it rained yesterday,"

"I'm talking about the houseplants."

"Oh,  Why is it time to water them?"

YIKES!!!

Anyway, all the plants survived my great adventure.

Striking






I cannot tell you exactly where I was when I came across this bridge.

However, what I will say is that I thought it resembled match sticks.

Does anyone remember match sticks?

Does anyone USE match sticks anymore?
