    Default TAKE MY NEIGHBORS PLEASE

    I was going make more deer sauage this week and decided to smoke it with pear wood. i told a friend of mine about it and he told me he knew where a pear tree was that had been damaged by Rita. last week he and i went cut the bigger branches off the tree it was like going into a jungle. brought them home,left them in the yard so i could cut them up in smaller pieces. my wife and i went bring a friend some fresh shucked oysters this morning come home, NO branches i went ballastic. my next door neighbor shows up and i tell him about my ordeal and he looks at me and said "well me and george thought it was a branch from your oak tree so we're burning them in our fireplaces as we speak it took every ounce of self-control to keep me from causing him bodily harm

    I understand your pain Bobby. I have three pear trees and when I prune, I guard those limbs with my life!!!

    Just so you know what a good guy I am, I will prune some more small ones and give them to you this spring if you are in our area.

    Need to thin the branches some more anyway.

    If I have to duck to get a lawnmower around them, I don't want them.

    But those pears make one heckuva cobbler!!!!

    I agree. Unfortunately long suffering husband would not. By crickey was he sooooo angry when I had a gardener over recently who followed MY instructions, and trimmed a few of Andrew's favourite trees. Andrew threatened to trim my gardenias.

    Bobby you have a naughty neighbour.

    Had a biggg Black Walnut that died this this year. I have a friend that has a frame shop they just opened up. When she saw what I had, she asked," what are you gonna do with it". I told her I was gonna burn it in the fire place. She 'bout croaked. I'll take it and make frames with it.

    I still have some left if you want to smoke your sausage with that...UB

    Look at it this way- They were trying to help you out.

    My neighbors would have the city serve papers on me for leaving a debris pile! Last thing they would do is help!
