monster tree is here!

Nathaniel from Home Depot delivery called to say he was on his way. While giving him good directions he asked if we were on Buttermilk Hill. I had no clue what he was talking about though. He was here in barely 10 min. And he came in a semi. So I let the littles sit on the porch and watch and watch this big truck with our big tree drive all across our land. Jovi kept wanting to go do what he wanted to do, but finally relented to sitting and watching. Only they couldn't really see because our "littlescape" was in the way. I learned that Nathaniel had grown up in our town, was 1 of 6 boys (poor mother!), and now lived in the next town over. His brother also used to be the mayor of our town. And for some reason (I forgot to ask why) he said his mother knew this hill (the highest point in our town) as Buttermilk Hill. I'll have to figure that one out. He also knew that there were several natural springs here. And he said that our town is on a lake. Hmmm.
Hey, babe, look what I managed to get done for you! No more digging on monster hole! No more wondering how we were going to get it in there! We do need to turn it a bit, but it's in!

Fun story! I don't see a hill anywhere though. I'll show you a hill when you come visit, LOL! Just have to harass you sometimes...
