Crop Circle!

Knoxville's First Crop Circle
As the rays of dawn streaked across the eastern ridge line, it became apparent that we had been visited by an alien being---there was a crop circle in our front yard! 

It was about 5 feet in diameter and absolutely no grass was growing inside it. 

Maybe we can get someone to come out later today to take some radiation samples.  This has got to be a first for Knoxville.

I Cannot Tell a Lie---I Chopped Down the Cherry Tree.......Or, at Least, I Paid Someone to do It
Oooops!.....mystery solved........breaking seems that the yard man I hired to cut down the Weeping Cherry tree in the middle of our front yard finally got around to doing the job.  Shucks.  An alien spacecraft seems like a lot better story.

Well, while I'm musing, do you remember all those hundreds of white rocks the previous home owners placed around the front yard?  I talked a neighbor into taking them off my hands. 



  1. ha, you had me perplexed there for a minute!

    now why did you cut down that beautiful tree?

  2. i HATE that you took that pretty tree away!!! c'est la vie...

  3. We get alot of crop circles here in the UK BUT not caused by a tree being cut down.

    Enjoy your week-end.

  4. It looks much better without the white rocks, but it's shame about the tree.

    Have a nice weekend.
    Greetings Sabine

  5. Haha. Sneaky, sneaky :P
    It was such a pretty tree though :)
    Happy weekend to you and yours!

  6. Oooh...You should have sent that tree to me!:)
    You have a beautiful yard!

  7. Hahaha! Ok now you got the start of your novel. So, when ya gonna get the rest of Chapter 1 done? That's a great story and you really caught my attention!

  8. Those white rocks WERE rather weird. Nice house!

  9. *rotflol* are crazy, what a story :-))))

    It really looks better without the stones, but couldn't you move the tree to another place??

    Have a nice evening and start into the weekend


  10. Aw, I miss that tree and the white rocks. Bet you could have sold it. Of course now you have a clear path to mow.
    Wow, only had to sign in once today. Yipee.

  11. Making progress............Making it your own! Ah, HOME SWEET HOME.

  12. ok, ok.... Funny story and yes cropcircle does sound exciting but WHY did you take down that tree????????

    I thought it looked quite lovely!

    You must have a good reason...?

  13. I agree with you on the rocks, but I would have never gotten rid of that tree. It was beautiful!

  14. I thought for a minute we were invaded :)

    God bless

  15. I really liked that tree! The white rocks definitely had to go though. Love the yard!

  16. Hihiii.... herrliche Geschichten kannst Du erzählen. Das Kirschbäumchen ist so schön. Ich liebe diese Kirschblüten.

    Liebe Grüße

  17. Hey Clint, for a few seconds you got me there... then I remembered the cherry tree in a previous post. I was guessing you might have chopped it down... and sure enough, next photo shows it's true.

    Well, it's your property, but I kinda miss the cherry tree...

    Glad you got rid of the white rocks - you lawn sure looks better without them!


  18. Well, you almost had me there! ha ha ... Seems like lots of people are missing the cherry tree.:)
    Blessings to you and Cindy.

  19. Hi Clint,
    what a shame about the beautiful cherry tree..(why did you cut it down??).
    I agree. The place is looking much better without
    the stones!!!!

  20. The yard will look much better when we get some grass growing in the "crop circle". :-)
