Trash Day Moan

Well today is trash day, well actually trash throw out day since they come around tomorrow do to the pick up. Today I have ceiling tiles from my back porch to get rid of. They are so old and are so scratchy when they touch the skin.

Also small branches from the trees that I had to prune. And it’s recycling day also.

Below is a picture of how old and faded the ceiling tiles are. Definitively time for new ones, which is great since I’m remodeling.

Wire in the sky moan

I didn’t notice it when I was buying the house but here it is. I removed a tree because it was tangled around in it and actually pulled the connectors off the neighbor’s house. I just don’t know how to go about having this wire removed from above my property.

It goes from the neighbor’s house across my yard to the telephone pole at the opposite corrner of my yard. It could so straight up to the pole on the property line on this neighbor’s side and then down the pole to the telephone junction but it would take more cable.

This sucks. I can’t fly a kite in my yard or do anything over twenty feet in the air.

Tree Removal Moan

Tree Removal. I kind of liked the tree but it had to go. It had the neighbors telephone line in it. So had that removed and another tree removed and a tree capped.

The whole process was a pain. I called five, yes five, diffrent places to come out and give me a quote. I had two that never showed. One that wouldn’t meet with me he showed up and left a written estimate. Two that showed up for me to show exactly what I wanted and they gave me a quote.

The one that left me a written estimate. Of course he got what I wanted wrong on, since I had to tell the person on the phone, not him directly, what I wanted and he came buy and figured out on his own what he thinks I wanted done.

The two that showed up. The first of the two was a bit strange and he gave me a quote. The second of them showed up and was very business like and quoted everything out. The tree cut down cost, the remove cost, the cost if I wanted the roots ground up (which he recomended not to since it was holding up the hill and told me to let it go until the ground plants took in so the hill side didn’t wash away.) so I went with this guy.

They came and in about 45 minutes were done. Total of 2 tree removed and one tree capped.

The first few pictures show how it looked before, then after the cutting and the last few are how the area looks now since I built up the wall on the back hill side.
