About six months ago, unbeknown to us, lightning struck a very tall pine tree (about 125’) on our property. This tree was on the side yard….thank goodness! We hated to ask anybody to cut this tree down in this horrible heat wave but dead trees just don’t like to wait. So this morning, very early, the tree company showed up to take it down. In order to do this deed the electric company had to disconnect the electrical wires along with the cable lines going to the house. So for about two hours we were without power. I would complain but I stood outside and watched these men do their job and realized how much hotter they were than me. Heat index was 105 by the time they were through cutting and cleaning up. Even with a “Because the tree was dead….very dead…. taking it down was a little tricky. The main man could not climb the tree so each limb had to be tied and dropped.
As luck would have it they hit a few of the bushes below the tree so now we have a very ugly hole! Oh well, it will grow back and the tree could have caused lots of damage if left to fall on its own.
Yesterday, Sue, from Big Dawg and Freeway, contacted me to check out their latest blog entry. I always read her blog….love Sue’s writing and views!! So being a little more curious than usual I jumped right over and found out that she had hit a monumental point in her blogging…..her 3000th comment and guess who that was???? You got it right…it was me!! I am very honored to be that 3000 person to leave a comment on her fantastic blog. We have been following Sue and Doug’s blog for quite a long time and have enjoyed getting to know them (along with Tucker of course). It still amazes me how close you become to fellow bloggers. Mike and I are proud to call them our friends and hope one day to meet in person. We will sit down and begin talking as if we have known each other for years. That is just the way it is with fellow Rv’ers and bloggers.
I read on Sue’s blog today that she has mailed a special 3000th comment “Canadian Prize Pack” to us and we are excited to see what Sue has sent our way. We will let you know as soon as it arrives. Wow! Feels just like Christmas!!
