Cheech and Chong
I was up on the roof taking pictures when my friend Pie called. Luckily I had my phone up there with me.
I wanted to update my friends with a picture of Cheech and Chong, the two trees I accidentally disfigured last winter while cutting down some nuisance poplars nearby.
My two crippled boys - one with no limbs and the other without a top half - are looking pretty unique and spiffy in the front yard, but I was having a hard time finding a photography angle that shows them off. That’s why I was trying to climb the stepladder I’d balanced in the trailer of my ATV. I’m not sure why Mary came running when she caught sight of my photoacrobatics balancing act. I didn’t have my hearing aids in so didn’t catch everything she said, but I know she was pretty excited and the words fool, dumbass, wine, broken neck spilled out of her mouth as she grabbed hold of the ladder. So I climbed down to hear better what was so exciting.
I’d like to think she was admiring my prowess and determination to get a good picture. And she’s the one who made the great suggestion that I climb up on the roof (TOMORROW!!!) and try from there.
So, at 8 o’clock in the morning, I was up on the roof when Pie called. I described the weather and told him what a nice day it was so far. He was impressed, I think, when I told him Cheech and Chong were a handsome couple and I was taking pictures of them from the rooftop.
