Sitting in a dead tree!

We sang very, very odd songs in girl scouts when I was a kid. Songs about Stan the Lavatory man, and songs about albino cockroaches, and dead bagels. Kids are strange.

But I was talking about dead trees. We had one. In the front yard. It wasn't pretty. And I wanted it gone. So the man had a plan involving the jeep.

He hitched up the tree to the jeep, put the wrangler in 4WD, and pulled it right out of the ground.

And for a dead tree, it had an awfully strong root system.

Fortunately the tree is no more, and now I can plant something pretty in that spot. Unfortunately, nothing hilarious happened while I was filming the tree removal and we won't be winning any money from America's Funniest Home Videos. Oh well, a girl can dream.
