Got the story about this bizarre log that has been lodged on this power or telephone line for years. It’s in front of a house that used to be an eyesore before getting a facelift. There was a huge tree next to these lines, and this piece ended up on the wire instead of the tree. New owner Lauren has been trying to get the utility to remove it, but they refuse. They say it’s not hurting anything so they won’t remove it. Well it hurts curb appeal, but I guess it’s nothing compared to those ugly wires and cables and telephone pole sitting right in the middle of his front yard. So that’s what intrigues me…how in the hell did a pole get put in the middle of someone’s yard? It couldn’t have been put between the houses? It’s a matter of a few feet, and would have improved the property values. Any ideas? Just another case of bad development?

Hydrangeas have stopped burning, and a walk up Chaney Trail is still possible after 9am! We were out yesterday, and passed Elliot Gold on our way down. Here’s Woody the woodpecker at work Sunday morning. See that flash of red?
