We've had 4 Live Oaks growing in our front yard for 22 years.
Today, two of them were gone in less than an hour. They needed to go.
Five guys skillfully climbed and zipped and sawed and danced around our yard for a total of two hours. Long limbs were trimmed. Stumps were ground into sawdust. Leaves were raked. The yard got brighter.
It's funny though. On this day, when the house suddenly became more visible and the yard became brighter, I saw and spoke with more neighbors than I have in months.
Before the work began, I had 4 conversations while standing apart in the street. These in-person chats were brief, but so needed... after months of neighborhood texting. For a half year, the homes on our street have pretty much been sheltering in place. Those who brave the heat like us, mostly hang out in backyards. Suddenly today, the world opened up in front!
Cancer to Covid
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 17, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me.
Coronavirus and Cancer! Both are evil, but neither can totally get me down... if I vent! I hope with Covid, I run out of complaints before 200!
