How about if you drove in your yard and you turned the other way....
Luckily we are not in Minneapolis and St Paul, and our daughter is safely home as her local Cub Food Store was ransacked today near Hamline University. We were listening to that on radio. I was off doing mowing, my wife and I were returning from the cabin today to water and mow the grass.
My daughter called us, something sounded wrong. "Hey someone is at the door and he says he hit one of our trees." I'm like how could anyone hit one of our trees, they are way off the road and the ditch is 12 feet deep. "is he drunk?" I asked.
"sounds okay. He is very polite."
I was somewhat confused as to what really happened, and we were still 25 miles away but upon driving home it was true, someone had murdered one of our spruce tree we've been growing for years. These were long past the Christmas tree stage and this one, got all decorated each winter for the last decade. Crap!
He even ripped the stump out, pushed the tree back and didn't miss my car trailer by that much
How he didn't roll the Suburban....some what shocking
So we had a late Arbor Day massacre here, a sudden death of one tree, could have been worse.
I called the guy who was long gone, he wanted to do the right thing, make it right, asked what he could do....."hey, you owe me a tree." He agreed with the plan.
We'll see how happy he is when he learns what the cost of replacing a big spruce like that one costs, it is not going to be cheap and probably almost as much as the old Chevy is worth.
Birds....well, the mourning doves are nesting in the spruce next to this one thankfully but otherwise
migration is winding down
