Falling Trees and a Return to College


Things have been crazy around here this week, so I may not be around for awhile. But I shall return. Monday a Catalpa tree growing beside the back side of my garage fell on the garage. (There are photos below.) The other craziness is from getting my son ready to go back to IU. So I’ll see you guys when I have more time. Take care. Hugs, Elizabeth

  4. Oh no! I’m sorry to hear this, Elizabeth. I hope there wasn’t too much structural damage to the garage.
    Wishing you son a great year! xo


  5. I hate losing nice big trees but hopefully your garage and your son are ok.


  6. Hi Elizabeth 😀 Some trees have no respect for people’s property, do they ? Naughty tree ! 😉 xox ❤


  7. Oh dear, that’s a bit much excitement. All the best.


  8. Elizabeth: here’s best wishes for you to overcome that nasty catalpa fall and to have sustained little or no damage. Keep us posted. Good luck to your son on the next leg of his college journey. How I miss those days! 🙂


  9. Elizabeth, We have different up bringings, we are in different stages of our lives and live in different countries, yet our lives have something in common–they are eventful. Here’s hoping the good events far surpass the not so good .Good luck to Eric.


    • Thanks, Elaine. Sometimes I could do with a less eventful life, as I’m sure you could as well. Although I have to admit to having some wonderful events to look back on. Here’s wishing that all your future events are good ones. 🙂
