Prince had already made a few cuts before it dawned on me to take a picture of the tree that had fallen. Actually it was only half the tree as the other half is still standing.
Here is a closer look at the tree. The child in me made me climb up on the top branch to sit and watch for Prince to bring the Massey down to drag the limbs. As I was climbing down, I notice that it looked like a wooden octopus.
Here is Kitty tying the rope with a metal hook, reminded me of Captain Hook's claw, around limbs that had been cut so Prince could drag them away.
It was hot, hot and hot with no where to sit or stand in the shade. We started around 11 AM and did not come back to the house until after 6PM. I think we would still be there if the chain saw had not messed up.
When we got back to the house, I did not go pass GO nor did I collect $200.00 like the Monopoly game states but went straight to the shower thank goodness it was not jail and I did not have to spin until I could get out.
Because the frig had DIED, I had not been to the store. There was NO milk or bread in the house.
As I was taking my shower, Prince was working on his chain saw. He came in off the back porch smiling as he had gotten it fixed and started and all he needed was a bolt.
He went with me to carry the groceries as I all my kitty fur ached. We got back home and had a big bowl of cereal for dinner.
The kitty justice is we did not get finished but made a big DENT in the removal. The hay men will have to work in the fields on the other side until we can clear the road.
