Yesterday, a perfect fall day, we dispatched the piles of brush and dead trees we'd been collecting all year.
Jerome outfitted his "new" car with the necessary hardware and for the first time in years and years pulled a trailer.
A surprisingly short while later, our many large messy piles became one very useful mound of fresh mulch.
The ice storms last spring brought down several long heavy limbs from our beloved pine.
With Dick's able assistance and his trusty chain saw these are now a neat stack of logs, standing at the ready near the firepit.
A very satisfying day.
