Happy New Year?

Hi all --

Well we had our excitement for New Year's already. Usually it's a long evening and my people have some champagne at midnight then go upstairs, but before THAT, this is what they came home to last night after work. Mom's truck wasn't there when it happened, lucky for her!

There was so much wind yesterday I thought the roof would blow off! No wonder the neighbor's trees came down. One of them was dead already and it looked like the dead one brought down the other one as it fell. Ohhh Mom and Uncle Dennis are going to have a big mess to clean up!

They don't own a chainsaw. Should've asked for one for Christmas!

Then Mom noticed today they've got a little repair to do:

Maybe they should buy a taller ladder while they're at it!

Well, whatever they decide to do about it they can't forget this important item:

I'm not getting involved -- here is what I'M going to do while they go outside and deal with that mess!

I'm no dummy ---

Happy New Year!

Strewth, your mum sure is lucky her car wasn't parked there. That would have been a disaster.
Glad no one was hurt too.

You'll have lots of firewood to keep you warm while you rest, Rudy! We're so glad that your house is basically okay!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Yikes! I am so glad no one was standing there when it fell. Since it is the neighbor's trees shouldn't they clean up the mess and pay for repairs to the house?

We got the cookies you sent to us- what a fun surprise- Thank you very much!
Happy New Year, Rudy!

Hopefully all will be covered by your peeps' homeowners, and they have a small deductible. Actually, since your neighbor's tree was dead, they are liable for the costs of damage done by that one. (We know about this because that tree landed on our house!!!)

You made the right call Rudy - nap time is way better than home repair!
