thanksgiving stump extravaganza
Tuesday, October 15, 2013
Last year we paid to have this 200' tree taken down but the tree removal company left a 4' stump for us to deal with. My son cut his chain saw teeth on it for a few months, the we tried lighting fires on it until I thought we would be living with it and it's little suckers for the rest of time...
Today on this Thanksgiving day, I am thankful for the men in my life and tool rental businesses!
After 3 hours of digging with the bob cat and hand shovel. I have to say that when I could I got the dogs to dig. Dax is obsessed with shovels so it didn't take much to encourage him.
I whooped and cheered when I heard the final snap of the root! then ran for my camera!
Here are some remnants and the hole left behind...
and tea! a job well done deserves tea!
