So this morning I'm on my way to work and I see a HUGE maple that had come down during the nasty thunderstorm we had yesterday. When I finally had a change to stop back at lunchtime most of the wood was gone save for about 20 medium to large sized rounds. I pulled over and started loading them in the truck when this old timer pulled up and said "Are you going to take all of that? I just saw it and when I was going by so I went around the block to turn around." I told him "How about we split it?" We each took half but I let him have the larger rounds. I drove away sort of feeling skunked but still feeling like I'd done a good deed-I'm sure there are some jerks out there who would have just said "I was here first..." I went a different way back to my office then I came and lo and behold there was a tree service taking down a big old sugar maple! I pulled over, asked the guys if I could have some and they said "Sure, we'll give you as much as you can take!" Needless to say I left there with my rear bumper practically dragging the ground! It's a shame I didn't have a way to get in touch with the old guy because even after I loaded up there was still a lot left.
