The tree man came. I managed to save the pecan tree... but the 6 hackberries will be cut down. This makes me sad. As predicted, I basically just caved. I was told in the nicest way possible that there was nothing I could do about it, ultimately. But I could have drug my heels. I could have refused service, which would have delayed things a few months. However, I figure that if I'm going to plant new trees I should do it as soon as possible, since they're going to be rather puny for a long while.

Fortunately, there are a lot of very nice people who have offered their services in Project Plant New Trees in the Backyard, so I look forward to that. In fact, some weekend soon (this, or next) I'm going to have a "planning party". All interested folk will get together, tromp around my backyard, go to the nursery, look at trees, etc.. And of course we'll grill, play games, and music.

It's a type of tree. bumpy bark. People hate them for some reason. And the reason so many grow along the powerlines is that birds poop out their seeds while sitting on the lines. So it's a neverending game. The Power Company puts up lines, birds poop out seeds. Trees spring up right below the power lines, and The Power Company cuts them down.

If this doesn't cry out to be a crappy flash game or a Cheapass game, I don't know what does.

I want to plant! I can even bring my own spade. Playing in the dirt is fun, and when you're older than 8 years old you can call it "gardening".

You name the weekend, Roy, and I'm there.
