The Tale Of A Chainsaw Lovin' Hubby

Posted by MANDI at 8:15 PM


We had an order from Western Power (the electricity supplier for metro West Aust for those not here) to lop some trees along the front fence-line. They were getting a little too close to the power lines and needed to be cut back/down/off altogether! We do think that the powers-that-be have gone a little over the top in reaction to the big fire that went through this area during the summer but better to be safe than sorry. While Hubby was tending to those trees he decided to trim a few others that were overhanging the drive-way and the fire-break around the edge of the yard - you have to have a fire-break in these parts if your block is bigger than a half-acre.




The yard now looks a heap neater but we have a massive pile of branches down the front.




How big you ask? Well, here's a close-up...







And here's one from a little distance away...





Yeah, Hubby's gotta do everything BIG!

My dad used to (& still does as far as I know) love his chainsaw and being let loose. Obviously that hubby of yours does too.

LOL Iris!

He sure does, Melody!

And we had a tree lopper on in the weekend - I'll post pics of that in a couple of days...
