It's good to see your pretty purple face too. :-)
Good to hear from you. Glad you are taking care of yerself.
whatnauts, I'm taking a major break...Ms. whatnauts. They're finally removing the rest of the tree today. LOL
Wendy, I see you snuck in a comment here. I've noticed you haven't been around much the last few days. I do hope you're well. Perhaps all the sawing has driven you around the bend!! LOL
roseheather, I can imagine that your property did look stark after having the trees removed.
No leaves beneath the ash trees. They had been dead for some time because of the emerald ash borer. While the big dead trees were unsightly, they really made the landscape stark when they were taken down. Wow, looked like new construction of a house that had been there for over 30 years!
roseheather, WOW, I can't believe that men would smoke while cutting down trees. That doesn't make any sense at all, especially if there were leaves on the ground.
In the case of our neighbor's tree, the only way it could have been cut down is with the bucket truck. They had to remove our neighbor's entire fence in order to get the truck near the house and the tree was so tall that there is no way that a man could have climbed up it to saw the branches. It took all of 8 hours the other day, and then they came yesterday and sawed for one hour and then today for about an hour and they'll be coming tomorrow which I'm guessing will take another 4 hours to complete.
You are most welcome, Wendy.
We have had some trees taken down around our property. We had a number of trees in a fence row behind our house and some were leaning toward our house. For one tree, a man had to climb up into the tree to cut some of the branches. It was interesting because I've seen buckets used before but sometimes there is not room for a bucket truck.
A neighbor and I were not impressed with a group that won the contract in our town to take down many dead ash trees. The tree cutters all smoked as they were working, and my neighbor told me she was taking lots of pictures incase there was an accident. I guess the cutters had perfected the art of smoking and cutting. ; )
roseheather, that was so nice of you to come over here and mention what you did. Well, Pat's a good friend of mine and I know that if I had been in her situation I would have loved it if someone had done that for me. I was glad to do it.
Our neighbor's tree has been sawed down to the point that it won't fall onto our house....but they still have a lot of work to do before they are finished. It's amazing how much preparation was needed before they could even start sawing in the first place. And I was wondering....before they got started, how on earth they were going to remove the uppermost branches that were hanging over both our houses. Well, the man in the bucket tied a very long piece of rope around a limb/branch and sawed below it, and then the guys on the ground pulled the rope when the limb was sawed through so that it wouldn't hit the roof. I was amazed at how they were able to do it because it required perfect timing...and the 'bucket' man had to do this over and over again. I don't know how the rest of our town looks now because I haven't gone outside at all, but my husband drove around a few days ago and saw downed wires and trees everywhere. I believe everyone has power in our area now though. Thank you. :-)
But what was VERY special, Wendy, was your generous nature to share information about PD with all. I hope that the storm recovery efforts are soon finished in your neighborhood.
Hi, Ms. Mandy. :-)
Hester, I'm so glad you had fun too. :-)
Fun for me too! Thanks Wendy!
Well, whether you feel it is special or not, it was still a fun solve, and having done just ONE puzzle today, I've going to write an email and go to bed!!
But Mandy, read the title! It's nothing special. Actually, I made this about a week ago and wanted to improve on it, but since I didn't have enough puzzles to post today, I figured I'd post it 'as is.' I'm glad it looks like fun anyway, I hope you had fun at your exhibition. :-) I'll check in a moment.
This looks fun Wendy. I can't see it well as I'm on my mobile phone, but its bookmarked to be first when I get home tonight. Thanks
