IF A TREE FALLS....


SO THE ANSWER TO YESTERDAY'S QUESTION
IF 7 TREES FALL IN MY YARD WILL YOU HEAR THEM?
NO
And we will tell you why.
Due to the size and location a crane is used
to lift sections of trees as they are cut.
Pictures to follow of trees and what I did
during all the sawing noise. As soon as the door 
bell rang at 8 am, I turned on my High beams waiting to see 
who was at my door.

It was a tree monkey telling my peeps he was here to climb in my trees

 The sawing in the front got loud so I adjourned to
my peeps bedroom.  The trees in front and on the side
were not as tall as in back. They came down quickly.
My curiosity got the best of me, I had to peep around the door
NOW FOR THE FUN PART

The tree monkey is hoisted to the tippy 
top of the 87 million foot trees by the crane.
He has on all kinds of safety harnesses.
(And a hard hat WHICH by the WAY will not protect his
noggin if a tree falls on it.)
He is lowered into the top of the tree.
These pictures were taken through the skylight
the speck under his foot is just a leaf on the skylight
 Once tree monkey has securely attached the crane
lift and belt to the top of the tree he does the monkey
shuffle down about 1/2 way.  Then makes the first cut
the crane lifts the tree away

Then tree monkey attaches the crane.
Tree monkey does the monkey shuffle down the tree
The last cut is made at the ground.
This is the tree being lifted off the ground over our
skylight around the side to the street.

While my peeps watched this process 2 more times
I decided it was safe to go back into my den


 Which is where mom found me.  She actually expected me to
pose for her.  But I showed her who was boss of me....ME!!
I am thrilled to report the entire process only took 2 hours,
the tree monkey and his fellow monkeys were all safe and efficient
Mom said everyone had a job and they did it.  They even
used tree monkey sign language.  They could not hear each other
so they had to talked with hand signals.
Now our home is safe from falling 87 million foot trees
and the peeps no longer have to lie awake during storms
listening to the trees creak...wondering if this will be the night
one falls on the house.
The largest tree stump measured 35" 


FLOWERS WITH DORY WILL RESUME JUNE 6TH

THURSDAY TAIL and TALL Tale


Once upon  a time there was a kitty

who bellowed to her mom

come quick I spy a bushy tailed
rodent eating your pansies.
THE END

I have a burning question for you to ponder
answer on Friday
If 7 trees fall in my yard, can you hear them?
We are having 7, 60 foot pine trees removed
today.  It will be a traumatic day...
but we will survive.
As you can see by this picture, they are all very
close to the house. 
 4 in the back yard, 2 on the side and 1 in the front


During ice storms
ice collects on the pine boughs.  It only takes 1/4"
of ice to bring down limbs....we don't want them
falling on our house.

Tuesday BFFs Tale

I'm pretty sure mom has complained mentioned once or twice about me not being a lap
cat and yada yada yada Milky-Way (RIP) was always in her lap ...Toto the Doxie was always by her side in her chair... 
Well here is the rest of the tale. 


 In this picture, I'm sitting right by Mom's feet.
I, Madi, never let either of my peeps get too far out of my sight. Many times during the day I check on them and MANY more times during the day
they bother check on me.
We three are like peas in a pod...we don't crowd each other but we travel side by side through
life.
THE END
Hugs Madi

BROTHER GOOSE

MOM AND I COPIED THIS DIRECTLY FROM MURPHY AND STANLEY'S BLOG.


CLICK HERE TO READ HIS MOM'S LATEST UPDATE.

Furiends of Goose

This is a special post for our furiends in Blogville who know and love our furiend Goose.  As you know he is VERY, VERY sick and in the hospital.  His own Dr. Eddy is out of town until Tuesday so he had to go to another dogtur to help him until Dr. Eddy comes back.  They don't know what is wrong fur sure and his mom Michelle said right now he is "holding his own".


Now if you have read Goose's blog, one thing you know fur sure is that he does a lot to help other people.  But since me and Stanley know Goose and his mom in the furs, we know even more than that.  We know that his mom is just like him.  If they see someone who needs help, they are fast to jump in there and help them out.  Goose would give the collar off his neck to help a furiend in need!

We know lots and lots of people have asked us if there was anything they could do for Goose and his mom, to help during this bad time when he is fighting for his life.  And the truth is, his mom would not ask for anything. That is just how she is.  She will make sure Goose gets what he needs even if she has to go without!  We think Goose and his mom are connected in their souls.

Goose is going to have to pay his dogtur bill on Tuesday when he leaves and switches over to Dr. Eddy.  It is already over $900.   Michelle is switching Goose over to Dr. Eddy so most donations should actually just go to Michelle to reimburse her.  

We know Goose and his mom would really appreciate this but again, they would never ask for it themselves.  So we'll just keep this on the down low for now!  Thanks everyone!



Murphy & Stanley

HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY
