December 8, 2017 – Tree Moving

The family room has taken shape and now looks “lived in”.  Note Teddy on the sofa. I got him for Christmas when I was five years old.  Old bear.  One of his eyes had fallen off when I pulled him from a box in the garage.  I found the eye in the bottom of the box and will get around to gluing it back on soon.

The purple flower shrubs in front of the house have finally started looking good.  All three are loaded with buds.

We saw a tractor dragging a tree on the golf course.  I went out to investigate.  It was apparently leaning too far toward another house on the golf course.  Instead of simply cutting it down, they decided to move it next to our house, in the spot where another tree had succumbed to the hurricane.

I was quite a struggle to get the root ball into the too-small hole they had dug for it.  Another tractor arrived to help.

It didn’t look like enough root to survive to me.

Here is the status of the garage.  Sigh.

      Poor old bear is right. Andy absolutely HATES getting old. I reminded him of the alternative.

      We are not here for long. Leaving on Thursday for a week in the keys. Gotta check the hurricane damage to our stuff on the RV lot. I do want you to come visit when we get back though. We’ve been too busy to socialize with the wonderful neighbors.

    Your worries about the color of the floor tile now seem unfounded. The living room looks great.

      Thanks. You are right. I don’t even notice any brown in the floor now.

    Although it will add a look of being established on your lot, along with your new house, did you have a say in whether you wanted it or not?

      No. The tree is on the golf course property. And now it is dead. I didn’t think it would make it; there was too little root ball on it.

        It is sad to see the devastation, even though most of it has been cleaned up, if not repaired. Many of my Florida keys facebook friends posted photos of their homes and the mess. THAT was sad.
