Family and Falling Trees

We had some excitement at the Stumbling House the past two days. It began Tuesday morning whem Mrs. Stumbler noticed that a tree had fallen on our roof! I had been wanting to call a tree man to look at some trees and limbs, but now I HAD to call him. He arrived just after lunch, about the same time as my Stumbling Brother, Stumbling Step Father and Stumbling Mom arrived from out of town to celebrate Christmas. The tree man started by removing the fallen tree from the roof, and we were very luck there was no damage. Only one shingle was broken at the edge of the roof. When he finished work that afternoon, Stumbling Brother and I were so happy - he left his bucket truck for us to play with:

Stumbling Brother gave me a perfect gift for Christmas. I love the Dilber comic series and books. He had been colleting this set for me for a year. What is really great is that you SLAM them on the table, and they speak!

Tuesday night, we ate dinner, and I heated up some of my remaining Rice Cake soup for Stumbling Step Father. He liked it a lot, and then asked if he could try some of my kimchi. He likes spicy foods, and has been enjoying the red pepper paste (구추장) that I brought him from Korea. I also gave him some Korean ground red pepper (구춧가루) this year for Christmas. So, I introduced him to kimchi, and you can see from this photo he really enjoyed it!

Always keep an eye out for weak looking trees so you can get them trimmed! Doing this, or pruning them, will further prevent any trees from falling.
