I reached out to the Craigslist poster on day two to make sure I could still come back Saturday afternoon.

Response: “Nah man, that tree is gone. The neighbors don’t get along and they just wanted it gone.”

:(

After a few hours, I sent a text asking if the poster happened to stage tree materials anywhere before taking them to the dump. No response.

:(

Just before the boys headed to bed, my phone rang. A number I didn’t recognize, so I let it go. No voicemail. About 10 minutes later another call from the same number. This time I answer.

“Hey man, you still want some of that tree? I saved one piece and you can come get as much of it as you want tomorrow.”

:)

So the story continues…
