My dad came from Bend last weekend to visit. We played some music, ate, laughed (can't help that when he's in around) and.... did yard work. I know, weird right? Well, he had a use for some plums that were growing on our 3 plum trees we have in our back yard. We picked what we could but the tops of the trees were impossible to get to. What to do? Well, get out the chain saw and chop those trees down, of course! In other words he helped us prune our fruit trees. It was an overdue chore that we completely neglected last year. They're basically bare now! My OCD loves it! I would rather see bare and manageable than full and over taking the back corner of ours and our neighbors yards.
