We had sons visiting on Friday, helping with more tree felling and clearing out of the back yard. I won't bore you with photos of that (because I didn't take any!), but want to share a photo of Mr. Movie and I. He was the one I neglected to get a photo of at the Family Reunion.

Our home sits on an acre and a quarter and is covered with mature trees. Some are more than mature, they're in need of euthanasia and a decent burial. But we haven't gotten to them quick enough.
We want to replace these dying trees with fresh ones in the spots we want, (there seems to be no rhyme or reason to their current placement) and enjoy them growing here for the next few decades. We'd just like to do it on our timetable. However, death often comes at inopportune times and we have to deal with it.
