Today I had fun.
I got to play with my new chainsaw by cutting down two trees and about seven bushes that had been planted way too close to my house.
The front of the house looks a little bare now, but it still looks better than it did with all of the half-dead shrubbery.
In the back of the house I trimmed the hell out of a little Japanese Maple that had also been planted way too close to the house. Getting into my back door past that tree was a little like what I've always imagined the soldiers went through in the jungles of VietNam. Except for the part where people shoot at you.
I'll be surprised if the tree lives. I removed nearly a third of it.
My final project for the day was to get rid of the ugly useless clubhouse in my back yard.
That project failed.
I tried to pull the thing over with my truck and managed to spin all four wheels instead.
