Bill and Helper Holly to the Rescue!

Team Bill and Holly

We all know that the Deer People are not inclined to do their grazing on rooftops.  Until this morning, however, I’ve never before considered whether they might write thank-you notes.  If they discover the new stash of pears that our friend Bill dislodged from atop our cordless woodshed, I’ll have a little etiquette discussion with them.

After reading my blog of distress about those pesky pears, Bill wrote and offered his assistance.  I didn’t mean the blog as a call for help but, now that the woodshed roof is fruit free, I’m very glad that Bill is, by nature, a problem-solver. Since higher-than-I-am-comfortable would be involved, I was more than happy to say, “Yes, please!”

He brought his own ladder, his own tool (which looked like a long- handled window squeegee) and his daughter Holly, Sweeping Assistant Extraordinaire.  As it turned out, she “earned her keep” when the squeegee came loose from its moorings and followed the pears to the ground behind the woodshed.  Holly to the rescue without missing a beat (or a sweep, as it were.)

South of the Woodshed

If the Deer people are smart enough to look behind and to the south side of the woodshed, they will be sore amazed!  I know they will be grateful for the bounty, even if they are disinclined to write.  But, perhaps they will talk with me about it and I can drop a note to Bill and Holly on their behalf.

As for me… chilly as it was outside, my palms got a bit sweaty just watching Bill maneuver on that ladder.  I could only stay long enough to take a few pictures.  Both Nyel and I feel that we are in Bill’s debt once again!  And now, in Holly’s too!

    The forecast said it would rain all day
    But for a hole in the weather we did pray
    While walking the pups for a hole we did pray
    During the walk such a hole did appear
    We then quickly did get our butts in gear
    And served a breakfast of pear for our Peninsula deer
