Over the course of the last thirty six hours it has become increasingly obvious that there is no quick fix for our plumbing woes. Nothing less than replacing the offending pipe will do, and unfortunately for us, that pipe is located some nine feet below the big tree in our front yard.My whole family loved that tree. None of us wanted to see it go, but it was either that or give up toilets and showers. That's not a sacrafice we were willing to make, so today we said goodbye to the tree.
At first it was very sad...
but then it just turned into a whole lot of work.
We did it, though!Here's what's left of the tree. Is it weird that I'm already planning to use some of those logs to build cross country jumps?
That was an interesting way to spend a day, but I do not think I will be offering my tree removal services to the public. I'd rather stick to tackmaking!
