They are KICKING the tree off the roof. Actually in this shot they are flattening themselves so as not to be blown off the roof, but you get the idea. Note: it didn’t work. So we wrapped it with a rope and pulled it down. It took the gutter with it.
Unfortunately, it crashed through the guardrail and demolished the table. Father not pleased, blamed daughters for making him get on the roof during a storm, and then concocting the idea that we could move the tree with our own bare hands.
At some point during this calamity, my father looked at the yard and said
Well shit’s really never going to be the same.
I could not have put it better myself. Nor could I think of a better way to announce that MM is going to be getting a facelift this week. Be on the lookout for something altogether fresh and exciting. Things are moving quickly these days – but I have a very good feeling that things are going to be totally gorgeous in the aftermath.
