« Part 2: A new post (deck post that is) Part 3 of Life happenings series Part 4: A very short one »

Not what I had planned to do this week, but things happen. We had a micro burst or down draft or something like that hit the biggest tree in our yard. This lead to the need to do a bit of clean up. It’s an ill wind that does no one some good. Making the best of it, we now have an extra bit of wood to heat the house next year.

Yeah, we make a good team, the wife and I. We like getting out there and doing things together. The tree is on the riverbank, which is technically crown land (I think), and fell into our lot. A technicality that is not really worth getting pedantic over, the yard still had to get cleaned up and made safe. I suppose I could have went through months of court dates and lawyer fees to have it done for me. Not worth the effort though, and I wouldn’t have the fire wood at the end of it all. Easier and faster just to go with the flow and play the cards you are dealt.

Hello Jim its me again!

I wasnt suggesting anything but the physical location of the tree as it looked to bo outside your little fence.

Example: We had a construction vehicle drive past and tear off a limb causing it to fll on the roadway.

All they did was put up some witches hats during the day then at the COB took them back and left it all there, partly blocking the roadway and obstructing the street car parking.
So I rang the council and reported a serious obstruction on the roadway.
Quick as a flash nothing happened so my neighbor and I cut it up put it in his PU and he took it to the waste transfer statiom.
Three days later a council rep arrived to clean up the mess,!

Got to keep paying those council rates… I would hate to see the service decline further!

Enjoy the fire wood!!

-- Regards Robert
