Subject: RE: Mini-MOAB - Mother of All BS annex
I had two trees cut down last weekend; one was a very large pine in the front yard that I didn't want to fall on the house in a windstorm, the other was a vitex (purple chaste) in the back yard managing to grow into all of the power lines and cables (I thought I'd put it far enough away - who knew?)
Two different artists have stopped by the house asking for pieces of the pine at the curb (waiting for trash pickup). One is a blacksmith who needs it next to his anvil, the other has a daughter who makes glass art and she needs the chunks of wood as bases to mount her rods that support her glass. MOM was so tickled to see the blacksmith; he arrived via skateboard (he lives 2 blocks up the hill from here) - he shifted a very large piece (24" tall by about 16" across) onto the skateboard and took off pushing it up the hill.
