Whooo Hooo Dependable Ghost Tree Uproots!
We've been getting quite a bit of rain here in Savannah, Ga this past week. That's a good thing for being in a bit of drought we really need the water. I don't mind the rain much, for I have a nice covered front deck with a tin roof. It is so relaxing to sit out there on a rainy day, kick my feet up and enjoy the fresh washed air and a good book.

That's exactly what Squirt and I were doing last night just before supper, while the oven fried chicken was in progress. A flock of chickadees came to visit and we sat there and enjoyed watching them fly on, in and around our Dependable Whooo Hooo Ghosts.

Then all of the sudden, the ground shook and then sounded the most eeriest groan followed by a great big ripping sound. We sat there with our jaws dropped to our knees as we watched the entire tree tip over into the ditch behind it.


The Whooo Hooo Ghosts hung on as the flock of chickadees flew away. Who would think that they were just heavy enough to bring that whole tree down? There must had been a flying monkey or two that we didn't see.


Thankfully the tree, or rather mutant large Redbush wasn't large enough to hit the house behind it. Truthfully over the past few years our front yard real estate has been getting smaller and smaller. Wash out and erosion for the most part. Considering the house on the other side, we don't have much to complain about. They have absolutely no back yard at all!



My guess is to stay tuned, by the looks of things all it will take is another flock of Chickadees and maybe at least one flying monkey - and their entire mobile home is going to roll over backwards.

That's ok though, for now without the Redbush tree blocking my view - all that needs to happen is loose that house and I have a clear view straight to the Vernon River.

Providing some gorgeous evening sunset enjoyment.

    Maybe it'll take root. We have some neighbors whose mesquite tree fell down and kept on growing. The trunk is horizontal. Looks pretty cool.

    The government hired flying monkeys to topple your tree. It's obvious this uprooting was pulled off with military precision.
