For the past five weeks my Pete has spent every weekend in the backyard hand-chopping an enormous tree down.
We could get a treelopper, but he does not pay money for something he could do himself, thank you!
He has climbed metres into the air to chop down one branch at a time.
Then he has chopped each huge branch into smaller pieces and put it all into the trailer before taking it to the refuse dump.
He has made at least fifteen trips to the dump in the past five weeks.
Now all he has left is a trunk…
No matter how much he chops and chops and chops…
It just won’t fall down.
It won’t let go of its grip on the ground.
Want to know how much longer my Pete will persist?
Every single weekend until it is gone.
Luckily I have nothing planned…
