I was going to put the above picture in with my sky watch pictures but totally forgot. As you can see they finally came and cut down our trees. They came on Wednesday--a whole crew. There were 4 or 5 of them, and it took them about 6 hours. They did a pretty good job of cleaning up and though I miss them, I do not miss the worry when it storms.

I am only showing the one tree...I was a little emotional when they first started on the other tree. Just sort of sad to see them go, even though this is probably for the best. It will be less mess in the gutters, not all those seeds, no more close calls on vehicles that are not in the garage. Still, it is sad to see them go.
I was also kind of worried about how Mama Squirrel would react...I thought I might have to make a mad dash across the waters and adopt Hazel ...but not sure if Tom would be willing. Anyway, as you can see here she doesn't seem to mind in the least. This was the next was misting rain and she was all wet and bedraggled...but she is still my baby. Unlike Hazel, I cannot get her to set on me. But I really would miss her if anything happened to her. I would miss seeing her looking in through the back door looking for us...or miss seeing her come running when she realizes it is us.
Now, if I can just get the computer situation under control I talked about in an earlier post, I will be so relieved. But if you don't hear from me, you will know the reason why.
I am not sure I am ever going to get to post computer is one heck of a mess right now. I have no idea where all the problems originated, but I have pop up blockers on but still get pop-ups and some of them are just not nice at all. I set my privacy up higher, click apply, shut that window, only to go back in a little bit and it is set back to as low as it will go. I have ran my Norton several times...all it has caught today was tracking cookies. I have not been any place out of the ordinary on here...have not opened any email that I didn't I am really puzzled about how this got started.

I will post this post and we will see what happens...if I don't post for a while, you will know I am having major problems still. I have spent the entire afternoon and night on here. I just now discovered that even though I turn on the ad blocker that came with Norton, I go back to check it and it will be turned off.
