Master has been at it again at our cottages (click here). Apparently master had the national park forestry man up to inspect some trees during the summer and it was felt that a few of the trees could do with a prune. So the other day the tree man came. Well! I am not sure what master expected but we certainly didn’t expect entire trees to disappear. It has let a lot more light into the courtyard but even still? Anyway from my point of view it was a great day as we were kept inside all day. None of this ‘off you go’ thing. So we could stay inside, in the warmth all day. Mistress, very kindly, even put the fire on for me. Idiot brother of course was incensed.
All that activity and he couldn’t see what was going on. Master kept going in and out, there was lots of noise and sawing etc and he just had to sit there. Pity really. I would have let him out. With any luck he might have got hit on the head with a bit of tree – knock some sense into him. Instead I had to put up with his winging and whining all day. Anyhow they must have done what master expected them to do as he isn’t cross or anything. I assume at some point in time we will all have to help in getting the wood into the woodshed. I also assume that idiot brother will be a pain and get in the way. The pictures show me checking the aftermath of the destruction wreaked in our garden.
