You'd better sit down for this one!

You'll never believe what happened the other day. We are still in shock around here. I heard voices outside. Denis was working out in the yard, so I figured that he and my mom were talking. I was wondering what the conversation was that was taking so long. It turns out that it was our next door neighbor talking with an arborist about that poplar tree of hers. She had it TAKEN DOWN. Unbelievable! The sun is shining and birds are singing happy songs. No more leaves and wormy seed things. The arborist referred to the tree as a cottonwood, so we looked it up on wikipedia. It turns out that poplars and cottonwoods are the same thing.

Isn't it great to be pleasantly surprised. I can just hear you singing the Hallelujah Chorus.

Cool, GMJ. I'm glad that God answered your prayer, and I was happy to be the instrument. :o)
