Well, rather than spend money on a trip or something else fantastic, we get to replace sidewalks.. apparently someone complained and we got a 'lovely' letter from the city and are now in the throes of getting sidewalk areas replaced by a general contractor. Both areas around the trees on the front and back areas near the driveways. Lots of tree roots!! and rocks... Today was sent by those poor guys digging up roots. This week end Brian gets to somehow cut limbs from the tree in the back, also, as it is hanging too low over the street. This after I cut it way back this Spring. I stood in the back of the pick-up and reached as far up as I could to get to branches. Obviously it did not last long enough and those darn branches just keep on growing, as do the roots!!!!
Such is the life of home ownership!! :)
Take Care All and God Bless
