Quite a surprise on our afternoon walk today. Despite the majority of the old Pine Tree Trail being needlessly destroyed a year ago here in our Park there was one small section still left. Pheebs and I had walked down that section a couple weeks ago and it was partially overgrown with some small fallen maple trees blocking the way. A day later I brought my clippers along on our walk and began clipping back some of the small branches along the way just like I did for nearly 20 years along that trail. Today, as Pheebs and I were walking along a road near the trail I noticed tractor tires heading into the trees where I knew the trail to be. Walking a bit further I suddenly realized that the new owner had gone in there with his tractor and cleared all the brush out that had been blocking the trail. He had cleared out the fallen trees as well and he had even gone further and cleaned out another section of the trail that had not been passable for the last five years. So, with him having done that, I am now once again inspired to begin carrying my clippers again and make it my project to help the new owner in maintaining that trail from here on. The words, 'happy camper' pretty much summed up how I felt today to see what he (Adam) had done.
WHAT?? I DON'T SEE ANYTHING WRONG WITH MY OLD HOUSECOAT LAST WEEK THIS PART OF THE TRAIL WAS IMPASSABLE LOOKING BACK ALONG THAT SECTION I AM JUST SO HAPPY TO SEE THE TRAIL WALKABLE AGAIN LOOKING SOUTH ALONG ANOTHER SECTION OF THE TRAIL THAT HAD COMPLETELY GROWN BACK IN.....'WOW' THIS IS AMAZING LOOKING NORTH ALONG WHAT'S LEFT OF THE CANOPIED SECTION OF TRAIL I COULD SEE THAT ADAM HAD CLEARED THIS SECTION OF DEBRIS AS WELL LOOKING BACK ALONG THAT TRAIL SECTION I AM INSPIRED TO ONCE AGAIN CARRY MY CLIPPERS AND MAINTAIN THE TRAIL JUST LIKE I USED TO DO THIS IS LOOKING NORTH TO WHERE THE TRAILHEAD BEGAN AND WHERE THE TRAIL AND FOREST WERE NEEDLESSLY DESTROYED
We ended our day under sunny skies and 63F temperatures. In my world, that adds up to just about perfect:))
THIS IS ANOTHER AREA THAT WAS MINDLESSLY WRECKED BUT THE NEW OWNER HAS COME IN AND LEVELED IT OUT MAKING IT WALKABLE AGAIN
A mother asked her small son what he would like for his birthday. “I'd like a little brother,” the boy said. “Oh my, that's such a big wish,” said the mother. “Why do you want a little brother?” “Well,” said the boy, “there's only so much I can blame on the dog.”
Years ago Fidel Castro was in the hospital with a serious medical condition. He still thought communism was a good idea until he was slowly being lumbered along to the hospital in an old '55 Oldsmobile."
Two elderly, excited women were sitting together in the front pew of church listening to a fiery preacher. When this preacher condemned the sin of lust, these two ladies cried out at the tops of their lungs..."AMEN, BROTHER!" When the preacher condemned the sin of stealing, they yelled again..."PREACH IT, REVEREND!" And when the preacher condemned the sin of lying...they jumped to their feet and screamed, "RIGHT ON, BROTHER...TELL IT LIKE IT IS...AMEN!" But when the preacher condemned the sin of gossip, the two got very quiet, and one turned to the other and said, "He's done quit preaching and now he's meddlin'."
