Taking a Big Pine Tree Down

Updated Picture as of 12:30pm on Friday, Nov. 9- No more tree!
Tom hired our friend Shayne to trim our giant pine tree in the backyard. When Shayne began inspecting the tree, he noticed that the top half was rotted out as a result of insects. 
We're fortunate that the tree didn't come down during June 29th's Derecho wind event, or Hurricane Sandy on Sept. 29-30. So, instead of having the tree trimmed, Shayne and his crew started taking it down  on Thurs. Nov. 8.   Here are some photos taken during the tree cutting.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
