Location: Seattle, Washington, United States

What you have here is an old guy. In education for 30 years, started teaching elementary, ended as library and media director of community college. I've enjoyed mountain climbing, sports car rallying, was pipe major of a bagpipe band, played guitar and sang during the folk revival, walking and hiking later in life. Now fairly sedentary. Enjoy reading, esp. mysteries and fantasy, but my reading is pretty eclectic. Enjoy movies, giving Netflix a workout.

As If That Wasn't Enough

On top of the break-in, we had some trees down. There have been several big windstorms in western Washington in the last few weeks. One big tree was leaning into the top of another. We’re talking fir trees that are probably eighty feet tall. It threatened the power line. A somewhat shorter was leaning over the power line that comes to the cabin. So after I returned home we called around to see who we might contact to take the trees down. Also called the power company so they could come and drop the line. Word has come back from Bubba that the job is now done. He has cut the trees he took down into 16-inch lengths so we can use them in the stove at the cabin or bring them home and burn them in our Jotul stove in the living room. Only cost $250. Twenty years ago, even ten, I could have done it myself. But old age has brought wisdom. I know better. So Bubba’s price was cheap. Who knows? Maybe we got $250 worth of firewood out of the deal.
