Missed it by that much

Do you remember the TV series “Get Smart”? Don Adams played agent Maxwell Smart and he used to always say, in that squeaky little voice, “Missed it by that much”. . The cedar tree, the one that I’ve been showing y’all that had died, fell this week. And it didn’t hit the house, it missed it by that much. We couldn’t have felled it better if we did it ourselves. It fell in the absolute best direction it could have fallen without damage to the power lines, other trees and most important , our house. It missed our porch and house by about 10′. That’s the best luck, wow. The inside is split and rotted so we can’t use it to mill wood floors but we will use what we can, very creatively.

    I can’t wait to see what all comes out of all that character- filled cedar and your two fertile minds. I can just see red and yellow roses growing out of and around the stump… assuming you can’t make a seat out of it.

    BTW, I notice that your house has sprouted “satellites”. 🙂
