The dude was hanging out of the side of the copter watching his aim of the saw and would "swoop" it right on through some massive trees with limbs crashing all around.

All the while, he was super duper close to the power lines on the opposite side of the side he was watching....YIKES...and then the copter would jerk and I'd hold my breath until he straightened it out again. Holy chit!

Yepper....front row seat. lol Like this:



I was outside potting some plants when they showed up. I put the hatch up on the back of the car and sat in there watching them, so I'd be somewhat protected from the debris and such.

Never forget that the world is filled with more beauty than you could ever know, and all it wants to do is give you a kiss.

Re: Come on In If You're Online And Say Anything: Part III

Currently I'm in a process of accepting my own sexuality, and finding out how to express that part of myself in a wholesome manner. On the one hand it's a difficult process, that creates anxiety. On the other hand it's absolutely liberating to deal with a part of myself that has been repressed for so long.

Re: Come on In If You're Online And Say Anything: Part III

I almost never manage to convince anyone of anything. Usually I don't try very hard but even when I do I'm not any more convincing. Also, in the process of trying harder to convince someone I find myself getting more and more exasperated and annoyed and that of course doesnt help my cause.

Re: Come on In If You're Online And Say Anything: Part III

My nerve-plucking awe-inspiring jaw-dropping chainsaw ninja helicopter adventures paid off in the long run.

I was able to talk with some of the clean up crew and we'll now be receiving random loads of free wood chips to use in our gardening adventures. Yay!
