Pyrotechnology Is A Bust

Do you remember our six Ash tree stumps?

Oh how we cried when those trees came down. Oh how we mourned the loss of their beauty and shade. Oh how we said, "No, we don't want to pay to have the stumps pulverized."

And so we lived with those stumps for TWO, 2, II, dos weeks. And then they got in the way.

We thought about killing them naturally with chemicals (ha!), but that would take 6 months. No way, man.

We thought about that guy's offer to grind the stumps up for $350. No way, man.

So we decided to burn them out.

And it worked. The little fire kept going all through the night while we slept.

And the neighbors choked and coughed.

I am so very sorry! I didn't know that the wind was blowing directly from our stump fire experiment into your house - your bedroom - your lungs.
Ha Ha Ha!
I'm sure you'll find this funny someday in the next decade or so!

(If you happen to notice us moving out in the dark of the night while a really tall neighbor runs after us with a knife, just ignore it. He's probably just having as much fun as we are.)

Thanks for the Atkins tip. But no need to worry...I'm too much of a lady to have bad breath. Or fart. Or poop. Or sweat!

*cough. We aren't allowed to do that here in good ol' CT. We get to pay people to come grind them. Yay! Not.

Omgosh.. My pet peeve is when the neighbors burn leaves.

*snicker* I leave them lay and mulch them with the mower.

Your so bad. But the upside.. is no misquitos!
