In a brilant stroke of luck, our neighbor is having the ‘Tree of Death’ removed today. Now we don’t have to worry about it falling on our house anymore. The drawback, however, is that we’ve had contractors trapsing about on our roof for the last hour or so cutting all the branches off. And they brough small bratty children with them. Said children that constantly ask to use the brathroom and try to climb over the fence to play with the dogs. Right now I think they are out playing in the street…so if anyone is needing ‘extra points’, head out my way.
