Today, the bear and I watched the landscape guy trim the palm tree behind our house. We heard the sound of a chainsaw, and as we looked out our window, we saw many palm fronds floating down from the top of the 20+ foot tree. Pretty soon, we saw the man at the top, wielding the saw. A couple of times he came very close to cutting his "life rope", but alas, he never did.
The bear thought the whole thing was really cool, and even got to give the chainsaw man a high five as he repelled into our yard to collect the stray fronds. A fun thing to watch, but you couldn't pay me enough to do it!
