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.
