morm and the farmhouse

farmhousesmall.jpg Tonite I went over to morm's house to help her with some photo stuff. i got her a camera last xmas and she's still learning how to use it. i think she's got the camera down, but now we've got to work on going from camera to computer to printer/internet. it's not going to be an easy task.

while there she was telling me how she couldn't believe i went to school for photography and yet none of my pictures are as amazing as hers. for example, had i seen her pictures of the house on farmhouse ct? i would be so lucky to get a picture this amazing. apparently this gigantic tree fell down on mother's day and blocked the whole house in. luckily no one got hurt.

"eh, can you picture yourself in that tree? five years ago they chopped the left hand side down because it was on the roof. then it started to lean and it was going to cost $1200 to remove it, but the owner said, 'why kill the tree, it's still alive and takes forever to grow.' then the tree just wouldn't take it anymore and BOOM! it's on the ground! and it still cost $1200 to move the tree even though it was already on the ground....oh good for jose. easy job." (jose is her gardener friend)

she also says that when she was a kid in typhoon season, all the village kids would climb the fallen trees. she couldn't believe there weren't any kids in that tree yet...but they didn't fail her, when she showed up to meet jose the tree was littered with children and she had to chase them all away because "this is AMERICA and you are going to get sued."
