bye-bye, pine trees!

It was rainy and a bit chilly this AM, but Paul and his crew were here before 8:00 to take down three trees for us. In the center of the driveway, they removed the oak on the left and the pine tree on the right.

They also removed the large pine by the front porch.

It made quite a thud when it hit the ground.


my, what  big teeth you have!

Paul leveled the stumps, taking off the sharp pieces. Same nice guy who washed all the dishes and took out all the trash after Bethany’s party.

Now I’m eager to drive by and see how much the view of the house has opened up from the street.
