Tree monkeys

 About 2 years ago we had lightening strike one of the  big oaks in our back yard.  I had been hoping it had just gone into shock but it was slowing dying.  Being so big & close to the house we knew we needed to have it taken down but had to get in a tree service that would climb it as they can't get any big equipment into the back yard. 
 Felicity:  "Freda why are we sitting here on the patio?  Is there something entertaining going on today?"
Freda:  " I have no idea but I'm not sure I'm going to like it!"
 Felicity:  "Oh my look how high up he is!  I can't look!"
 Freda:  "Keep your knickers on Felicity!  I think they know what they're doing"

 Felicity:  " Timber!  Oh no it's going right for the shed.....oops it's not supposed to be sticking out of the roof like that is it?"
 Yup.  They managed to drop a branch on the shed roof but will be back tomorrow to fix it.  Also when they dropped the main part of the trunk they broke the perimeter wire to our invisible dog fence.  As long as Molly is wearing her collar she doesn't even think about going across the "line"   Good thing as it will be a while before that cut up so we can repair it.

BTW  The pics were all taken by Popster as I was at work when all this happened.  That's why there's no shot of the tree sticking out of the roof:)


  1. Oh good grief, probably a good thing you weren't there. what a pain in the well you know. Sorry you lost such a magnificent tree. ( and no offense to Popster, I'm sorry you werent there to docmement it's removal.

  2. that might have said, docUment at any other time of day

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!


We went to JoAnne & Peter's for thanksgiving this year.  They were cooking dinner & Josh & Carol were going to be there
 Molly is always game for a road trip!

 It was gray , gloomy day & kinda chilly by the river
 Sadie is such a cutie
 We couldn't get Addie to pose as cute
 Josh got there first as Carol had to work......these dogs just love him

 I forgot to take pics of the table but everything was so good & JoAnne made apple pie!
 We spent the night & left for home after breakfast on Friday.  Our GPS sent us home a different way & we crossed the Tappan Zee bridge.  They are building a new one so lots of work going on

 One of those big cranes toppled over a few weeks ago.....they are so tall
 Look at the size of that one!
 As you know I love bridges
