Then one day, I heard these strange noises. I thought they were coming from a tree that was being cut down across the street and east of us. A week later, I heard it at night, in the wind and knew it was coming from this one tree. I think we walked Trefethens out to their car a couple nights later and while Hank tied down something huge (don't remember what) I heard it again and asked Robert if he had heard it. Luckily he had. And we knew this tree had to come down.
Suddenly this truck that was heading north on Warwick, looks, backs up, and offers to help Robert cut down the tree. I'm saying YES...Robert's saying NO. YES won...did you have any doubt? And they were formerly employed by a tree company and are insured. And they are doing all this work for a song. I am blessed. I so wanted a live man and house whole at the end of the day. And besides, Robert is old but I'd like him to get older. Plus this one guy is a climber.
So they worked hard and took down the major part of the tree. I am relieved and grateful. I love how blessings come knocking on our doors without being asked.
