This is a pile of ash from burnt leaves.  The pile is about one foot high and 3 feet across.  Our neighbor (pictured) saw this pile on his fence line.  It was dumped there unwittingly by a friend  who was helping out with clearing a patch of land for spreading dirt.  Our next door neighbor who owns 250 acres of land, somehow spotted this little pile and decided that he would cut down the tree line along the fence between our properties to get even with us for dumping the ash (he also had his worker shovel it back over to our side of the fence).  The pictures below are of the poor defenseless trees that have been killed to satisfy this person's immature rage.  They start off with the neighbor and his worker caught in the act!  For sure this neighbor has won... 


The most pathetic circumstance in this somber tale is that the neighbor is a quadriplegic.  He was severely injured in a fall on the job and was awarded millions of dollars and that is how he was able to buy the acreage in the first place.





This is a root that had grown under the fence
 and has damaged it somewhat after a tree was yanked out of the ground.

He has said that this beautiful 
100 year old Live Oak tree is next!

What a piece of work is man!

"What a piece of work is man! How noble in reason! how infinite in faculties! in form and moving, how express and admirable! in action how like an angel! in apprehension, how like a god! the beauty of the world! the paragon of animals! And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me; no, nor woman neither, though by your smiling you seem to say so."

--From Hamlet, Prince of Denmark - 1601 - Act II. - Scene 2. - Rows: 115-117

Hamlet's murderous uncle the King has called for the prince's university friends Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, seeking their opinion on the source of Hamlet's depression and madness. In this scene in which the king, the friends, Hamlet, Polonius and various ambassadors go in and out, Hamlet addresses Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, forcing them to admit that they have not come out of pure friendship and concern, but because they were summoned. He describes his own recent mood in the classical terms of true depression: "I have lost all my mirth...the earth...seems...sterile". He bounces back and forth between admiration at the nobility and beauty of man and his own disillusionment at how evil man can be. After uttering the words above he calls man "a quintessence of dust", revealing the true depth of his depression and foreshadowing his suicidal feelings.
