Ode to the Hanger

We have had a branch hanging over our back yard for years. Last summer Ellen and I tried to pull it down. We put a weight on the end of a rope, threw the rope up there, and got it wrapped around the main part of the branch. But even that was not enough to bring it down – it was too well balanced. I am pleased to report that the recent wind storm has succeeded where we failed. It is now safe to go out in the back yard again.

    Are you liking the my safer yard or the image of me trying to rope the hanger and pull it down?
