Mike asked a neighbor who is a logger by profession if he wouldn't mind stopping by and lending his expertise to help fall a dead tree that was leaning in the direction of the barn.
Of course, as is the usual circumstance around here, you never know when he might actually be by.
Yesterday, he came by unannounced, ready to tackle the tree (having a home business is great for flexibility!) and he and Mike, with their matching orange hard hats, safely accomplished the task.
When asked what we could offer him for payment his response was - absolutely nothing. But not feeling quite right about that, we offered him our handmade coasters and eggs.
