The tree that's in my backyard...

...didn't grow there.

It just decided last Wednesday afternoon that the fence at my place was better than the place where it was planted.

The evidence:
The view from the boys' room. Primo had been praying for a tree in our backyard. I think he meant more of a tree house tree, not this one.
See how it just missed the swing set?

This is the view from ground level.

You've got to twist your head for this one. I couldn't get it to adjust when I uploaded it. This is where the tree had been growing.

We just thank God that no one was outside when it happened.

Now if the guy who owns the house hadn't moved to Poland...

And I guess you are not using the yard until he gets back from Poland to deal with it??? Oh boy, how fun is that? Want me to get my brother-in-law to teach you to swear in Polish at him? Or, I admit it, I could probably teach you that too. The only Polish words I know are foods and swears.

Actually, we were friendly with that guy. We aren't mad athim, just the insurance company. Both of us have the same insurance, but they don't want to pay for the removal. So, it sits.

Buzha moi!!! Are you people lucky. Still....can you borrow someone's chainsaw? Then you can stack it out front with a "free firewood" sign - and that should take care of "removal." Be Tom Sawyer.
