Thanks everyone for making our ebay auctions a success. Polly and I posted a couple more things, so make sure to take a look. This is the result. I am on my way to the post office to take about half of them. The ones that I can do on the automatic kiosk.The rest will go tomorrow when I can take them to the counter. There are also 6 LARGE boxes ready for the front porch and my UPS guy will take care of those tomorrow also. So, I am taking the day off. Not so much because I earned it but because of this.
These are 2 of the many black walnut trees in our yard. As you can see one of these holds half of my infamous clothesline. I could only get about the bottom third of these trees in the photo. They are very tall. There are about 5 more of them. Today Bill and the "tree-guy" are going to trim them. This consists of Bill standing on the ground, pointing and yelling and the tree-guy swinging from tree to tree on some sort of evil pulley thing - with a chain saw. I witnessed this horror show about 5 years ago when the trees were trimmed the last time. Never again. I spent the whole afternoon in a panic attack. Instead of spending the day with my finger poised over number "2" on my speed dial - I am leaving. I may even go see a movie. Number "2" on my speed dial you ask? Number 2 is speed dial for 911. You see, in an emergency punching 9 - 1 - 1 takes too much time - I have whittled it down just to one number. I put 911 on speed dial the last time Bill cleaned the roof. Thankfully, I didn't have to use it - but I am prepared. Later.
