Robin's Roost - rest your feathers!
April brought several big storms and naturally the storms brought lots of tree debris. I have had a massive pile up by the road every
single week for the entire month of April. Currently I am waiting for the next pile to fall. One of the recent storms broke my neighbor's
tree off and it fell towards my yard but got snagged on a branch of one of my trees. It is now suspended in the air with the base precariously
balanced on the tree it broke off from and the crown precariously balanced on the limb of one of my trees, and under this long bridge of now-dead
tree are the main power lines that cut through my backyard and feed the neighborhood. I have reported the issue to the electric company, but so far
no one has come out to assess the situation and deal with the tree. When (not if) it falls, I anticipate it will take out the power lines. My hope is
that it does not start a fire in my yard (that did happen once before, fortunately I was home to deal with it and got it extinguished even before the
fire department arrived). If it falls before the power company comes out to deal with it, I'll have another huge pile of debris. I wonder if the guys
who pick up tree debris ever dread coming to my house.
Many of you know J.A. "Tinker" Lammert, she has been an integral part of our group for decades. Over the years she has held every officer position,
sometimes multiple ones at a time, and she served as the editor of the MenTally for many, many years. Most recently she has been holding the position of
treasurer. Due to changes in her life, Tinker has had to resign the treasurer position effective immediately. We are all profoundly grateful to her for
the dedication she has shown to our little group for all these years. Thank you, Tinker, Tallahassee Area Mensa owes you a huge debt of gratitude.
If anyone is willing to take on the treasurer position for the remainder of Tinker's term, please let me know, I would be most grateful for the help.
It is not a labor-intensive job and it might be a way for you to get a taste of being more involved with the administration of the group.
The movie event for May has had to be cancelled, I have learned I will be out of town the weekend of the movie. So Harry and his friends will have to
wait until June for their next adventure.
Hope to see you at an event soon.
