It’s always nice to see our tax dollars at work! Check out the top of the dead tree hanging across our road in the morning rain. At any time it might fall on a passing car so it is commonly called a ‘Widow-Maker’.  Three trucks and seven men watched the eighth  man apply a chainsaw to the trunk. Photo does not include the other truck with three men, warm and dry, inside.


Then three trucks and seven men watched as the eighth man tried to push the tree over.


Eventually the tree gave up


and was quickly gobbled up by the big red shredder. No widows were made!

Author, illustrator of "The Yarn Animal Book", probably the only craft book with instructions for making such unique yarn animals as an orangutan, an ant eater, a llama and a star-nosed mole and "The Single Minded Prince, a fairy tale for all ages about a boy and a pirate captain who both misbehave. The books and a booklet series based on each different yarn craft topic covered in "The Yarn Animal Book" (pompoms and other really easy yarn crafts, knitting, crocheting, rya, needlepoint and embroidery), are available on Amazon and Kindle.
