Re: woes


Thieves steal more than trees, they steal that inner something we have about
feeling good about what we are doing, making us feel "Oh, why bother?"
But we persist.
I suppose you could have chained the trees to a hook in the ground.  But I'm
betting that if they couldn't get them easily, they'd probably destroy them.
My ex-H and I planted trees on his property years ago and vandals came along
and just broke every single one in half.  I'd rather they'd taken them than
destroy them.
