Oh, I had forgotten I took April. What a year this has been, I did January, April, August, most of September, and part of October this year. I really hope I don't have to do so much next year.

I used a tree service for the four dead trees we had this year.

Christian, husband, father, granddaddy, son, American. Here I stand. I can do no other. God help me.

Ow!  I hope you heal quickly.  Just two hours ago I told my husband _not_ to get up on a ladder with his chainsaw to cut off a branch that is rubbing against the house and tangled in the cable line.  We're waiting for the tree service to call back, for that and a couple of other jobs -- my husband is quite happy to let them do it.

Good judgement on the four previous trees. Gravity is a harsh mistress.

--Ouch! Glad you kept the saw from attacking you! Rest up, take aspirin, hot pads--and strapping the ribs often helps (did that after a mild car wreck quite a few decades ago, helped me a lot).

A chain break is a VERY scary thing!!! I hope that you meant "chain brake".
