Kitties, it has really been wild here at our house! We had a lot of damage done to our trees last October with the freaky snowstorm, and also all the trees have been in need of trimming and pruning anyway. Mom and Dad also wanted to get limbs near the house trimmed back. But it was not till this week that then men could come to do the work. They actually drove their truck with the bucket extension on it into our back yard and left it parked there overnight!! Here is a picture of the truck parked in our yard (they used special mats so as to minimize the damage to the lawn though it did get somewhat chewed up in places):
and one of them using it to get to the high branches: the other truck with the wood chipper is parked in front on the driveway:
We were very interested in everything, and the weather was warm on Tuesday, so after they left we got to be out on the deck again. But it was also close to dinner time, so finally we asked very definitely to go in to eat!
