We didn't really have a great place to put the brush but managed to put it behind the house, hoping to kill some weeds that were growing there. (Yes, we need a gardener or very low maintenance landscaping.)
Then last week Mickey was threatening to get the pruners out again. I decided I'd better get them before he did. So while he was mowing I trimmed the low branches that were bothering him. We ended up trimming four trees, a lot from two. This left us with even more brush. Luckily the branches and trees from the first cutting died and decreased in height or otherwise we would have had one tall pile of brush.
Now we needed to figure out a way to get rid of it. We knew we could dump it at his grandpa's but getting there was the problem. We know people with trailers but things didn't work out so I suggested using the van. Mickey and Meg worked hard getting all the brush put in the back of the van.
It was a hot, dirty job. Normally I would have been right there helping but a sneeze took out my back (yes, I said a sneeze) so I couldn't do much but lay around since I couldn't even stand up straight. Meg took the picture. Maybe one day she'll do some blogging too.
