Fallen Oak Tree
In July 2002, a big oak tree fell down in the woods. It was about 43" diameter. It fell in a big wind storm. I broke down and bought a new chain for the chain saw so I could actually get it out of the way. The saw along with the tractor allowed the expedient removal of the tree. Now, we'll have nice oak firewood for the winter.
|Here's the tree. Note how it fell over the little electric fence. That's how I knew something was wrong - the little fence charger, while working, was just going, click-click-click instead of CLICK-CLICK-CLICK.|
|My kid and I climbing up to the top of the tree. When the tree came down, it broke this other little tree on its way down..|
|Here's Junior up in the top of the tree. It was still pretty high up there. It took most of the day for us to clean up the tree.|
|Here is my honey-pie and our little puff-puff dog. She (the dog) likes to climb stuff. She used to climg about six steps of a stepladder to get in the house while it was being built.|
|Buster Brown, the other dog, and myself seeing how well he (the dog) climbs. He's not as adroit at the high stuff. I think it has to do with wheelbase - he is too long to turn around on a little 15" platform..|
