demolition derby

There was no way I could get a decent pic of this activity but there is a man at the top of that cute Red Doodly. LofPNet was having a big old dead tree removed from his back yard and it provided most of a day’s worth of entertainment here at TeleCubelandia.

LofPNet is one of those neighbors who sees EVERYTHING. He was looking out the window at 3AM back in 2000 and saw the top third of a tree in our front yard fall on our house (in a storm) and it was the PNet fam that notified us about the next door neighbors’ tree falling on our house in, what was it, 2009? Something like that. We were in the yooperland in Penny’s Kitchen with my moom when we got the email. Maybe those experiences have made him more proactive about getting rid of deadwood than others or maybe he is naturally more proactive.

Demolition also began at Cubelandia today. It won’t be finished in a day. Oh, they aren’t tearing down the building. It was a lease. They are just tearing up the cubes and removing them. Building Mom sent pics and people expressed sadness. I have rather mixed feelings, mostly too complex for throwing into a quick blahg entry. I schlepped over there on my Zen Commute for a good many years and that place had its perks. Ponds and wildlife and nature walks – with TICKS in the last few years, YICK! And Farmer John’s lunchroom produce stand. I did most of my commuting purring along in the Ninja. I bought it a year or so after I started working there and sold it a few weeks ago.

In other news, via the facebook Swanfriends group, *eight* cygnets have hatched at Swan Corners. Alas, some of those probably won’t make it. Turtles grab them and sometimes automotive vee-hickles hit them if they are resting at the side of the road. There’s a four-way stop there. SLOOOOOW DOOOOOWN!

    I think I would feel weird if a place where I had many years and memories was demolished or even radically changed. But I’m a “move forward” sort of person so it wouldn’t take me long to process it and let it go.
