Let's walk down memory lane

Saturday, September 13, 2008

So back in the summer of '07, our backyard looked something like this.

We were not fond of our little woods or the massive lilacs . . . so Tony went to work.

And it ended up looking a little something like this.

But before that glorious after, Tony decided he wanted to be a lumberjack. We were fresh out of plaid, so he decided head to toe light denim would do the trick. Do you see the tree about to meet it's demise? Okay, I'm being dramatic, it was already extremely dead. Look at the top of this picture and you can see the jutting toothpicks that were left of this tree's branches.

Once again, Tony got to work. A la the pioneer woman, just look at that demin clad butt, or don't. Whatever suits you. :) Sawing away, or is it sawwing? Not a word you see often either way.
Ho hum, look at my nice little perfectly placed chunk. Resulting in the felling of this tree, exactly where I want.
Now the big reveal, loosing the tree. Yell Tiiiiiimberrrr with me!
Ooops. Not quite the intended destination. Remember the removal of the chain link didn't happen until this year!
I love him anyways, even if he isn't going to be featured on Ax Men. :)
