Down She Comes
I had two guys, about my age, do the cutting. Ex power company employees, pole climbers by trade. I told them to just get the tree down, I would look after the rest. So for the next two days, my wife and I cut it to manageable pieces for the wood stove for some time in the future, and got rid of the rest. I told my wife she would have made a great pioneer.
The next morning I noticed that the tree next to this one didn't have a leaf on it, while the rest of the trees in the yard are still full.
