Men in Orange

Apparently, if you are wearing an orange vest, you can just traipse around peoples' backyards like you own them. You can even cut down their trees all you want! That's the scene in our backyard today, much to our incredible surprise. A big loud truck pulled in at about 8:30am and the men in orange (sent by the power company) started lopping off branches. The Woman is praying for their sake that they don't top any of our trees, because according to her, the trees will look really stupid if they top them. The power lines are pretty low, and to top them, you would really have to cut them in half, so I guess I have to agree with her on that. If they top our trees, I am afraid to be around for the aftermath. Things are tense around here this morning. More later.

    My experience with orange colored men has been that they will, in fact, cut off as much of a tree and possible and their GOAL is to make it look like a stump at the end of their "trimming". Let us know how it went...

    oh, no, Norman, you should be out there letting those orange men have it! I'm sure they would listen to you and tell the Woman to carry her paw stabber out there!
