Gum Trees, Sawdust and Cleaning

20131005_110612

We hates gum trees My Precious – nasty, wicked, tricksy things.

The joy never ceases!  We got the tree down from the aviary and out of the other property and that’s good. What’s not so good is that I cannot take  things to the city dump for two reasons 1) it’s a long weekend and the dump is closed and 2) the brake lights on the car are not working, everything else is but the brake lights are not. I will have to book it in for a service/repair and hope that I can get it done fairly quickly because I need to be on my way to Adelaide on Friday.This is only part of the mess with the full trailer in the background. I would chance the dump but not this weekend with the police out in force – as they are every long weekend – it’s not worth the risk.  Herself wanted to know if I had been hit on the head because I seem to be leaking sawdust- Oh yes, very funny!!

I have not been able to get to see the vet regarding the little man. Things are a bit chaotic at the moment and as it’s the long weekend, most places are closed down. I will make every effort to get him in on Tuesday. I have been taking him out for walks and the other night he just didn’t walk very far and I carried him again. But it’s like the song ” He aint heavy, he’s my brother”  I don’t know if I said this before but the little man was a rescue dog that had been beaten and abandoned – chucked out into the bush. He had been kicked and bashed and whilst the vet tried to save as many of his teeth as possible,the poison from the rotting, broken  teeth was too much and they were all removed – so I guess you can say that in this case his bark is worse than his bite. After we rescued him  from the “Final Cage” at the pound he was in “Hospital” on a drip for several days. Yes, he was spoiled rotten when he came home to stay with us, and yes, he slept with me. Chienne has always slept with Herself.

The dump was open today so John and I took  three big trailer loads of  debris. 20131007_171157How to spend $15 a trailer load. Still the place is clear – not cleared up – just clear. I’ll start the sweeping up tomorrow.  The stuff that’s left I should be able to get in the Green Recycle Bin, which I have already started to do.

Just before I close off, it’s blowing a gale and there is  a Severe Wind Warning for the region. All the work I did yesterday , sweeping up and so forth, had all been undone. Ah well, it looked nice for a few hours, now it will have to wait until I get back from Adelaide.
