Logging

Today we felled a tree. This tree.

It involved a complicated cat’s cradle of a rig —

— plus chopping, sawing, and some ill-advised steeple-jackery upon the roof of the shed.

And it landed. Not on us. Not on anything.

Actually, it’s pretty amazing that neither we nor any other living thing died — well, except the tree, obviously.*

Missed it by THAT much.

In retrospect, we probably should have hired a tree surgeon…but we’re broke, so we didn’t.

And thus we successfully felled a tree AND proved, as I have often maintained, that God loves idiots.

*And, tho’ it was not doing so well, I do feel bad about killing it the rest of the way.
