10 year Blog-versary

 It was 10 years ago today that I was invited to be a USK Seattle blog correspondent.  I had in mind a grander sketch but the day got busy. 

There is a truly massive blackberry bramble in our neighborhood.  It runs 100 feet wide, at least a couple hundred feet long, and 20 feet high.  It constantly tries to take over our yard.  It was 5 years ago that the Homeowners Association last tried to cut it back.  Finally they hired a company to do so.  

Between obligations, I had just a few minutes to sketch the man at work with the machine.  I spoke with him after.  He said he was a little worried he was "in trouble...with L&I * or something, even though I know I'm not doing anything wrong"!  

 The mower in front has a huge spinning blade underneath.  It took down the entire bramble in just 2 days!
