Day 2 of 30
Tuesday, May 15, 2012
I was very active today, so I'm beat but feeling good! The beech tree at my parents fell down...it was enormous and hollow in the inside. It made quite a mess it their yard. It made me sad in a way, such a big beautiful tree gone! So many bats, ground hogs, chippies, and squirrels made their homes in it. I had picnics under it as a kid. I biked over to their house then spent over an hour picking up wood from small to big to be hauled away, then biked home. It felt good to do some physical labor. Did anyone hear about the 103 year old man that passed away? He had spent years trying to save this tree, it was one of the tallest. He even named the tree. Two years ago it got some tree disease and died. They didn't tell the man, but they built a coffin out of it. Now they are going to burry him in it. It was a beautiful story!
