Had quite a week here at the ole ranch
We were invited to celebrate a 1st and 60th birthday party.
HB and I were quite honoured to be included in the celebration.
It was for my walking buddy Deb's retired guy and granddaughter.
You can see the celebration HERE
Then we got to spend the afternoon with
Our sweet lil Miss D
Terrific weekend you are thinking.
And you would be correct ......
Until we came home Saturday night and found this
The big beautiful locust tree in our neighbour's yard had split and toppled onto our roof.
At first we thought it had been hit by lightening as we had been having some very bad storms.
But it just seems the poor ole tree was rotted.....
We found a fantastic arborist --- recommended by another neighbour ---
He came to assess first thing Monday morning and by Monday afternoon was working at getting the tree off our roof.
Unfortunately the tree --- which we have figured out to be close to 60 years old ---- had to come down.
We are heartbroken over this
Neighbours Tom and Melanie watching the chop down :(
The arborist came back on the Thursday and took the whole thing down.
They chipped and chopped and took everything away.
Even cleaned up the street of all the rogue branches and saw dust.
Tom and Melanie are talking about planting another in its place.
After all of this I came down with one heck of a cold but I won't
bore you with those woes.
Suffice it to say I am still recooping.....
