Chainsaw massacre

This was not what was planned for today. I’m not sure what was planned for today. Well, for me it was work and I am proud to say that I deconstructed a document I was unsatisfied with, reorganized it, and knocked it back together pretty successfully. So yay for me although I am not finished with it because I am already brainstorming tweaks to it. Also, pride goeth before a fall.

Anyway it was around midday and somebody was knocking on the door. I reluctantly got up to see who was there, figuring it was a solicitor. It was a tree service. So yes a solicitor. I think I was politely turning him down but then the GG bounded up behind me and took over the conversation and the next thing I knew, we had hired a tree service solicitor to trim a couple of our oak trees. This was a surprise.

But… What I didn’t know was that the GG has been trying WITHOUT success to hire a tree service to trim the oaks for the last year or so. Nobody wanted the job. These folks were ready, willing, and able and had just finished up with a neighbor around the corner. I know, I know, that’s what they all say but this time it seemed to be true. And we did need our trees trimmed because it’s a dern jungle around here on the west side of Tree City aka The Planet Ann Arbor. I think we are happy? I’m not sure I can tell the difference between before and after but by the time they finished, it was raining cats and dogs and I didn’t go outside. But they did take a lot of stuff down and haul it away. In the end, our next door neighbor also hired them.

Of course I wanted pictures but I didn’t really feel comfortable going out hanging around potentially getting in their way. So this is one the GG got and it’ll have to do.

If it had been a window replacement company, we’d’ve booted them.

    It can be very difficult to find workpeople for so many jobs so if someone shows up who is willing to do the work we need done–I say, GO FOR IT.
