It's taken me a couple of days to get to the point where I can write these words:
THEY CUT DOWN ALL THE TREES ON THIS PROPERTY
Not that there were a lot... but why? Now I have a view of the dock, which I didn't want. Any noisiness down there will not be caught by the trees as they are dead now... There's a big pile of brush from two douglas firs -- and I see some madrona branches in there, which is a horrid thing -- that I'm sure they'll burn soon. The alder along the drive has been cut, too.
Marilee came over yesterday and we worked a short time on images for the website. I was sad at how short my time was, however. She brought me goji berries, which I'd never heard of, and some of her jam and Pete's smoked salmon. I told her I'd give her my computer (which is a very good deal) and she said she'd give me $C, which is cool. I rang my computer people and told them I thought they hated me since I hadn't had any emails from them. They said, "Noooo!!! Don't think that!!" I got a quote and bit the bullet and said I'd go for it. The hardest part for me is leaving my ATI comfort zone and heading into the wilds of Nvidia. But I like to leave my comfort zone, so I'm going to don my pith helmet and go to that unknown land.
