I swear I am not a litigious person, but here I go off to court again... but this time I'm going to tree court. That's right tree court. I have to explain why I want to get rid of a tree that is bigger than a skyscraper. Conveniently the city has given me an appt during the middle of the work day. Also conveniently the tree I am going to court for is not the tree that I am actually going to take down. Apparently our favorite tree in the backyard is a sick little bugger who needs to be euthanized(What would the Catholic church say - ARnold), so he is going to have to go first... of course he won't go until I call the city to have them give me... another tree court date. Normally I would be raving angry about this sort of ridiculousness but I am not. This weekend will hopefully be a blissfully relaxing and cool (weather wise) weekend in our old stomping ground of PDX,. A magical placewhere there is no sales tax, lots of cafes, great public transportation and best of all beautiful trees that we are not responsible to care for. :) Have a great labor day weekend everybody!
