If you ever wondered where the root of all evil originated...it was in my front yard the whole time.
We had to cut down a tree to make room for two apricot trees. I didn't want a stump left so Greg pulled it out of the ground with the tractor. As you can see by the picture, it didn't give up without a fight, pulling the tractor off its back tires.
With a little persuasion, we managed to pull it out, roots and all. Who's your daddy now, stump?
We've pulled bigger stumps, but we used a bigger tractor for those. I always hate taking out trees, but sometimes they have to go.

Note: We lost the comments at The Galaxy Express blog, but we found them even if they couldn't be physically restored.
Thanks, everyone for visiting me!
One final note: I am taking a blog hiatus for a couple of weeks while I entertain company and hunker down for a writing marathon. I will likely be more visible on Facebook and Twitter while the blog is down, so follow me there if your curiosity gets the better of you. And of course, I'll be seeing you guys at your hot spots too.
So what's new in your part of the world? Who's read something they can recommend? I plan to do a lot of reading now that the tour is over. :-)
