Over the weekend, we shopped for new end tables. The ones we found have dual 120-volt receptacles and two USB ports on each one. I thought that was pretty cool.
Tonight after work, I met with the owner of a local tree-trimming service to discuss the removal of a tree which leans across - and over - the neighbor's fence, at a 45 degree angle. They will take the tree, after securing it to its neighbors, down to a flat stump in the yard, for the low, low price of $500.
We'll be getting a second estimate, of course, but I'm not really surprised by the cost. Things cost a lot, up here.

Our daughters will be participating in a private fishing expedition next week, so tonight they're trying on hip-waders. It's all new to them, but they'll be with experienced folk, and the boat is normally a charter vessel. But this time, it's a private "friends and family" expedition. They'll be on a river up in the mountains well north of here, and should have a great time.
So now you know where the post title came from. Bet it made you wonder, eh?
