Now you see it... now you don't

Sometimes it is nice to have things done for you...
When we bought this house we were told that the grapefruit tree in the back was alive and kicking. Well after being in the house for a couple of weeks it was very clear by the bark falling off and no leaves that the tree was very much dead. So we have been talking about what to do with this dead tree and a stump that was next to it. I wanted to just be done with it but it didn't seem to bother Shannon to have a dead tree in the back yard. So anyways it was an afternoon and someone knocked on the door and said he was in the tree cutting business and "noticed" our dead tree in the back yard and wanted to know if he could cut it down! Shannon walked around to the back yard with him and he said he would normally charge $80 to cut down the tree and stump but he would do it for $40 if he could do it right then. Shannon came in to ask me and of course I was like "YES!". So in 20 min our dead tree was gone. I love looking out there and not seeing that ugly thing! In my opinion it was so worth getting it done by someone else! Who knows how long it would have been in our back yard...
