The Little Things
« on: December 02, 2011, 09:09:41 PM »
How things happen that I'm thankful for. Carbo got a job from an old friend/neighbor of mine. They had an end of year excess inventory at discount prices. She gave me or Community Park 1-5" Dawn redwood, 1- 18'-20' river birch & 1- 6' dogwood. After I made the order, she asked who was paying for it & I told her I was & she said take them, Awesome!!! I've wanted a dawn redwood for #15 for about 3 years.
Thanks Kathy Sharp!!!
Now get this, that was Great but how was I going to get them to Channahon?
Scott has a 1 ton that would work but I was unable to reach him. I decided to call the Park. I really don't like asking for their help, just don't. To be clear a couple of guys are friendlies, Larry & Dobber. To my suprise, & with a good attitude, they drove to Kendall Hill Nursery, in Newark & picked up the trees. Wait until you see them!
One Day at a Time!
Don't stop believin'

Wow. When you sit and think of all the money and labor you put into Channy Frank it makes perfect sense you got some kickbacks. You deserve it! Thanks for your continued improvments Frank. The course looks amazing.
It's great to be alive!
Positive mind helps.

Thanks Randy, Patrick. The issue was to get a large enough tree that wouldn't get trashed, at least that's my hope. I lucked out to get that size of tree, & it was free! The things that are good for the soul. Remember Randy, positive my brother. Other than this stupid cancer crap, my life is full of positive.
