This weekend Prince and I tackled power line clean up. Our local Nashville Electric Service comes YEARS apart to clean the ride away of the power line leading to our home. The reason IT IS HARD TO CLIMB THE HILL AND IT IS HARD WORK. To hasten their clean up, they just cut it down and let it lay. Thus, preventing an easy cutting process. These horrible trees (Sumac) take over in droves. Some were in danger of hitting the power line. I had loppers in hand and Prince had a old weed eater with a regular saw blade which made it one more brier cutting tool. It would take about 3 passes to cut the small trees. We worked Saturday afternoon and most of the day Sunday. When the sun would go down the wind would pick up and I was ready to head to the house but Prince wanted to do a few more sections. I cut vines up and around the small trees that were gonna stay standing and I did very little of that because when I felt the back getting weak I stopped. I do like being upright and a woman has to know her limitations. Therefore, I became the cheering section and would fetch water and sit on the four wheeler watching our neighbors go in and out of their drive and the other neighbors riding their horses. It was a pretty sight to see those pretty horses and then the turkeys came over to peek at us to see what these 2 legged animals were doing. Prince likes about a 12 foot section on the very bottom and then we want to get all the debris up so it can be easily mowed. NES has crews they pay to clear out the lines but again they just cut and leave: plus, since the CEO has had a 51 percent raise increase the last 5 years (Yes I typed that correctly) I guess clearing the lines was not affordable.
We had beautiful weather here this weekend so here is a look at the sun rise the last Sunday in February. It looks like a giant hand fan. You think the Angels may have been hot? The Kitty Justice is I would like to be a CEO of NES for a day as that would be more than I and probably others make in a year. Didn't get that wrong either. The Nashville people are being ripped off. Our local Channel Four News presented the facts on the evening news yesterday.
