I Need to Take Care of Some Important Things

When the director from the assisted living home where my mom is living called me last week to say that it was time to put my mother in hospice and that I should make funeral arrangements, I was devastated. I also knew nothing about how to handle the arrangements. The last thing I needed to do to handle it all was to contact a monuments dealer in Essex County NJ to pick out a headstone. I wanted to think long and hard about what to put on it, so I gathered all of the pricing info and told them I would call them back after I had made up my mind. I can’t believe that I will soon lose my mother.

I have heard many times from people who live in other countries that it is common for families overseas to stay close together. Parents and children see each other often.Read More

My Wife Wanted the Trees Gone

I admit that I can be a bit of a procrastinator. I wanted to get some trees cut down when I bought my property nearly a dozen years ago, but I just never got around to it. I kept putting it off, but I knew last year that it was time to finally get it taken care of. I contacted a Suffolk County tree removal company because they give free estimates. I wanted to see what it was going to cost me to have the half dozen trees chopped down. I knew that it would make my property look a lot better, or at least that is what my wife has told me.Read More

This House Will Need Some Work

Of course I was fully aware of this when I bought the place and much of my motive in buying the place was that I knew I could do much of what needed to be done myself. It is going to take a good deal of time and what I need to start out with is to hire a person or company that does tree removal in Nassau county. They have a couple of dangerous trees above this house and I am not keen on having a tree fall upon my head while I am working. It is obviously more likely that it would fall on the house or perhaps on my truck. I move around when I am there, but those things are going to be sitting still. Obviously if I think about it I am going to park my truck in a safe place, but the entire driveway is under threat from these two trees.Read More
