    So what did you accomplish in your drunken stupor . . . .

    I cut a tree. Cut that bitch straight up. Hated that cypress since I moved in four years ago. It was pretty well ate up by the bagworm moths, so it was time to go. Damn tree had been shading my window for four years, finally got in the right frame of mind to just cut it down with a pruning saw from Harbor Freight.











    Cutting it down was the easy part, I'm still not sure how to remove the stump. I really want to plant another azalea bush smack where the stump grows. I'm thinking of putting a chain on the stump and pulling it with my truck. Truck would be on some pavement a good bit away, but the truck is an old 2wd Toyota that weighs 2500lbs and cannot pull a greasy string out of a cats ass. Plus if I did pull that stump, I'm afraid there would be a root underneath that sidewalk that would cause it to crack/lift. Any ideas would be appreciated.

    A shovel and an axe; lots of digging and chopping .
    Amazing how people will put little shrubs like that right next to a house and then don't expect them to grow .

    Cut the stump off flush with the ground and put a flower pot on it. The truck will never pull the root ball from that tree. Wash the side of the house with a mild laundry bleach solution.

    That's a great idea there. Maybe I'll be motivated in the fall when its a lot cooler to work on that stump with an axe and a shovel. Plus if you plant anything in July/August around here, its going to be severely stressed from the heat. If I don't water it every day it will die.

    Call the local stump grinder. He'll make a big mess but he'll clean up after himself. You can sit right inside that window with a cold beer in your hand and watch him work.
    Don't mess with Binky Bear!

    Cut that sucker as low as possible and let the vegetation hide the rest of it and be done with it. Power wash the side of the house.

    I have nothing to add but I love your comment "the truck is an old 2wd Toyota that weighs 2500lbs and cannot pull a greasy string out of a cats ass"

    I had never heard that term before but I can't say that now.

    Gotta thank old Grandpa Bays for that turn of phrase. He was a character, a real man that grew up in a "hollar" in southwest Virginia during the depression. His family didn't have a cent to their name until he enlisted in the Navy to fight the Japanense in "the war". Yet he managed to rise above that poverty and make a decent living. Wish we had a few more years together, he was the only person on my dad's side of the family, other than my dad, that wasn't so self absorbed that he actually cared about how you were doing, how your life was going. He would never talk about his life, his affairs, unless you asked about them.

    Sorry if that got a bit personal with that. He's a huge influence on me.

    Most catch phrases come from observations. We had a cat once that ate some tinsel. My wife saw this clear 'string' hanging out the cat's butt and she being a nurse, pulled it out. The cat sure didn't appreciate it! Her digestive system had stripped the chrome off the tinsel string.

    Hope your cat didn't die of Pb or Cr poisoning.
