After a big storm a few years ago, one of the trees in our backyard fell down. That was exciting enough for the kids in our neighborhood. They get to witness my husband and our neighbor slicing the tree trunk and then came “la piece de resistance”. My husband rented a truck to take the wood to recycling. This made my  boys’ day. That summer I heard the questions “When is daddy going to rent a truck again?” too many times.
