Corner of 4th & Main

Don’t ask me what 4th & Main have to do with it, but this is the corner of my property, taken from a cherry picker I rented to remove some trees in my back yard.  Before we were done I had to take it up as high as I dared and take a few pictures.  I only had the guts to extend it about ¾ of what it is capable of, and that put me eye-to-eye with the top of the power pole in the corner there.  I like this picture because it gives you an idea of how high up I got.

This may be number one on the list of jobs I would never have.
Then again, sewer worker is a close second.

Writer - ahh, it wasn't that bad. The scariest part was leaning over the edge of the basket holding a running chainsaw and trying to cut in a way the branch doesn't come back at ya. But I left those really hard ones for my little brother. (Just kidding)
Karen - I'm sorry to say that those were the trees I removed. I've been moving over to more xeriscaping in my yard to save water.

No, Max, Karen means she wonders if the weather looks like that right now.

Here, Karen, lemme answer that one for ya: NO. It's been a robust 17 degrees outside for the last couple of days. It doesn't look like that at Max's house or anywhere within 100 miles of Max's house.
