The Knotty Seat

In your mind, imagine the sound of a telephone ringing.

“Hello?”

“Hi…nothing important, just working out in the yard. ……….ok….see you in a few”

And off I went.

I arrived at my destination to see this: The tall one is my Dad…we call him Grampie…That little one…well…you guessed it…it’s Grammie…My mom.

They had to remove two huge trees that died and they wanted me to haul away the stumps. The old man next door to me wants them for his wood stove.

Lets just say that the “little one” was not a happy Grammie…she was ticked about the loss of those trees…Isn’t she stylin and gorgeous today? I told my kid not to get too close…was fearful she might be wild! hahahaha!

We loaded the first bunch to take to the guy next door. There would need to be two trips…for sure! These ones didn’t feel the least bit heavy. I was confident that I would be able to get this done quick and easy. Who would have thought this was gonna take a turn for the “silly”

I know what you are thinking….

I just KNOW what you are thinking.

You are asking yourself how the heck I can be surprised that anything take a turn for the “silly” when this man is involved!!!

I know…hahaha….I kinda laughed too when I caught myself!

The second load was stumps that had been cut so that if I wanted to use them for something in my gardens I could…if not I was supposed to drop them off for my neighbor to burn…with the exception of one piece. Ya…I said it…there was one piece that was reserved completely and totally just for me!

Scared yet???

DSCN2969

THIS is that piece…it is the KNOTTY SEAT! Grampie made it JUST FOR ME!

DSCN2980

See how happy the “short” one is that I have a Knotty seat??? Ya…Mother’s Day is just around the corner missy!!!

DSCN2999

We finished loading my truck…and I must say…those stumps are HEAVY!

DSCN2973

Grampie had to help this time…and we got smart and used a dolly.

DSCN2980

Grammie is super human and she just carried hers…hahaha!

DSCN3000

I tried my best to change the subject…I even tried the hey…look over there!!!…technique. It didn’t work…

DSCN2953

..I got sent to the Knotty seat. It is too tall for my legs…and it is a tad crooked…makes for a slightly uncomfortable sit…but hey…it’s a knotty seat…

DSCN2954

...at least the back is tall!!! hahahaha!

DSCN2971

Grampie made sure there was room in my truck for the seat…and off we went! They followed me home to help me unload…”cuz they are fairly heavy” was the excuse...

DSCN3010

I think they followed me home to make sure I kept the Knotty seat…ha ha ha!

DSCN3025

I did keep quite a few pieces…I will find some place to put them…if not…my neighbor can have them.

DSCN3011

Now I Just need to give some serious thought to find a spot for the knotty seat!

I hope you will tune in tomorrow when I will be coming to you live from the outside of my house! From this Not so secret location you will get a sneak peek at the changes I have made in my yard this weekend! I am using today to “tweek” them a little bit and get ready to share! Thanks so much for popping by today!

Until Next time……and Happy Gardening!

*)*)*) Be careful what you wish for, you might get it. And once you have it, you might not know what to do next. After all…says you can roll a turd in powered sugar but that doesn't make it a jelly doughnut!

Very cute idea!

Diane said...

LOL, a bunch of real characters in your family, I see. Including you!

You look great there.

Hi Tootsie, you are a family of Supermen! But i have a different question: Why did they have to cut an already big tree? I always have something pinched whenever a tree is cut, and not by circumstances of nature! I have a new blog called Pure Oxygen Generators, it is mostly about trees, of course, as i love them for our benefits.

I am so excited to see what you've been up to girl. And about that knotty seat - I have no doubt you will find a cute useful way to use it. Paint it..Plants on it...Perhaps a vine...I know you have some idea how you will use it. I'm sure you will find a creative way to use the stumps too.
