Very good!  I'm glad to hear that the tree is less of a worry.
Something I forgot to mention when I saw you on Saturday (this came from a 
populace discussion) is that the land owners would like us to burn the large 
pile of greenery that's accumulating beyond the archery field.  I heard 
rumor (again, at populace) that we may try to do it this weekend.  The stuff 
is VERY green, though.  I just wanted to make sure you had wind of this.
I will be bringing my mower on Friday to touch-up the fine cutting.  Thanks 
abunch for knocking down the big stuff.
At the risk of having a shoe thrown at me...

DE DOo deee....
(to the tune of "Pink Panther", of course...)

Pray to God, but row for shore....              (old russian proverb)
