It's a sad, sad world

It's been a long night. It is too hot to sleep, Jack lost the Dandy very early this morning, resulting in a lot of whining, and I have been having allergy issues. To top it off, there was a very insistent ringing of the doorbell promptly at 7 am. It was the tree man, here to remove the big old maple from the front yard. She wasn't faring well these days, each new storm bringing down yet another large part of her, part of her already dead from years past. But, still, I was attached to her. It was the tree in the front yard! We have lived here for 4 years, and even though this house is a rental, I am attached to it.

It took all of 5 minutes to bring down 37 years of tree. The pictures above aren't the greatest, but they were in a hurry to cut her down, and the camera keeps fogging up from the heat. The first ones are of her last stand, and the last two are her lying across our yard, felled by the chainsaw.

We will miss you old tree, but, I must keep repeating, tis far better to cut it down then to find it blown down on top of the house, tis far better to cut it down then to find it blown down on top of the house....

P.S. Jack, of course, found this all very fascinating.
