We had a wind storm in our area a few days earlier, and because this old, ratty pine tree is at the northeast corner of our house – in the back – we did not even notice that it was down for a few days.
On Friday evening Cerwin messaged Ian to ask if he, Jared, and Jesse could come at 10:00 the next morning to help dismantle the trunk and branches. They were happy to help.
Jere (their dad) called about 9 AM the next day to ask if they could come early. They were so anxious to help Grandpa. 🙂
I love the enthusiasm of young boys.
They loved using saws, shovels, and things that made them feel like lumberjacks.
We gave them lunch – chicken patties – and allowed them some fun time in the man cave where they played a few X-box racing games until it was time to go home.
We had an evening appointment with Roy and Deb at RD’s.
This time it was to enjoy a meal with Roy’s mom, Barb, and his sister, Mary, who were visiting from Florida. It was fun to catch up on their lives.
Deb had pre-ordered a homemade apple pie – made by RD’s mom, Mame. Yum!
