We took the Jeep into the BAYFIELD GARAGE at 8 this morning & it ended up being there all day & should be ready to go sometime Thursday morning. Needed some extra work which I was not surprised about with some of the rough & tumble desert Jeep drives we have been on over the last few years. Universal Joints, Brake rotors, & one drum had to be machined etc. That Jeep has really been good to us so we don't mind spending a few dollars on it. It’s gotta last me till I’m a hundred & five.
GORD MANOEUVRES HIS BUCKET INTO PLACE TO BEGIN WORKING ON THE TREES BEHIND HIM
Busied myself after our morning walk with trimming some more small trees & shrubs. A job I should have been doing all along but never kept up with it. No problem, I have a sharp new blade in my Bow Saw & I’m ready to rip. Tree cutter Gord rolled in about 11:30 & the rest of my day was helping with the 2 troublesome pine trees in our back yard. Gord goes up in the big machine, cuts off all the branches & drops them to the ground. My job is picking up all those branches & piling them in our driveway. Had I had the Jeep today I would have just loaded the branches into the utility trailer & hauled everything away. I will do that Thursday when we get the Jeep back. Gord then starts from the top of the stripped pine tree & cuts off 2 & 3 foot sections of trunk & drops them to the ground. So right now the trees are stripped bare & about 20 feet of the tops are off. Gord is going to be away for a few days so the next phase of our tree saga will be using ropes & pulleys to lower the heavier chunks of tree trunks to the ground as they are cut. Maybe next week. Oh, & I got some living room windows cleaned between hauling pine branches too, put away some more summer lawn ornaments, & put away a couple water hoses for the winter. I think we got a couple Pheeber walks in there somewhere too:))
IT’S THE 2 TREES ON THE LEFT THAT ARE COMING DOWN & YOU CAN SEE THEIR CLOSE PROXIMITY TO OUR GARDEN SHED
LOTS OF PINE BRANCHES TO PICK UP & PILE…I’LL BE BUSY THURSDAY MORNING HAULING ALL THIS AWAY
GORD TIES A ROPE ON THE PIECE TO BE CUT
HE THEN CUTS IT & THE ROPE PREVENTS IT FROM FALLING WHERE IT SHOULDN’T…GORD THEN UNTIES THE ROPE & IS ABLE TO TOSS THE SMALL LOG DOWN TO A DESIGNATED SPOT FOR ME TO PICK UP
Forgot to include a Blog Site for our latest Blog Follower in Tuesday night’s post. You can find Mary-Pat at BUTTERFLIES & HEART SONGS. Now here’s another one of those great Gals out there on the road doing it on her own. I always have the greatest admiration for ladies with this kind of free RVing spirit.
NO THAT IS NOT A BIG WHITE FUZZY CATERPILLAR WITH PHEEBS, IT’S JUST HER LITTLE PAL RASCAL FROM DOWN THE ROAD
I do have to agree with the Guest’s logic in our Shout Box when they say, “
If you don't like what Google's doing then don't use it”. That’s very true & so far I have chosen not to use the Google+ stuff but every once & awhile I get myself in a stew figuring I had better try to catch onto the coat tails of this newer technology before I am left so far behind I’ll wake up one morning & find myself in the dark ages. I do like some of Google’s stuff so I will just continue to use that which I like & understand. And I will continue to grumble whenever I attempt to figure out something new. It’s just my impatient nature:))
SO THIS IS WHAT WE HAVE IN OUR BACKYARD NOW UNTIL GORD COMES BACK TO FINISH TAKING THE REST OF THE TREES DOWN
