Hi there.....

So kind of you to stop by....I do enjoy the company.

Thursday = gallery day so this is going to be short. I get to wear the boot another 4 weeks. Whoopee. The tendon is getting better, though, and I'd rather put up with the boot than the alternative.
Had to have a huge leland cypress cut down yesterday (sigh). I could tell it was dying from the brown interior on the branches. What a shame. It had become an apartment house for a number of birds. I don't know where they'll go now. It seems strange to look out the window and not see it there. Just a large stump. I planted that tree the year after I moved here and it had grown to well over 20 feet tall. I'm going to have to check the other three I planted to make sure they are okay. I would have let the one cut down die a natural death but was afraid the wind would put it across the driveway and then I would have had a real mess on my hands. Looks like we'll have another good fire this fall or winter (I had the guys pile all the branches, etc. on the leftover burn pile).
Y'all have a good day and remember: the less you know the more you believe.

Glad you found out the boot is helping, but did he give you a second one?

Sorry to hear about the tree and the birds losing their home. Maybe you can find a quick growing tree to replace it!

I like that quote, BTW!

I have the 2nd boot. Now the 1st can be washed. Thinking about what kind of tree to plant. Glad you like the quote. Hope you have a great weekend and thanks for coming by.
