Purchase Mistake

In today’s episode of “First World Problems” I managed to accidentally buy on a grocery run early May the wrong flavor of Pepsi.

I didn’t want my soda to be patriotic, I wanted it to be cherry flavored, darn it! :p

You can see in this side-by-side why it was an easy mistake when quickly grabbing. I saw a red bar, I assumed (incorrectly) that it was cherry.

I have since slowed down on my pepsi grabbing habits so that I can be sure to get a cherry.

And no, I’m not drinking pepsi for any political reason, but rather because I’ve always preferred cherry pepsi over other sodas.


Pole Work

A few years ago the neighbor cut down a dying/dead tree. One of the branches knocked out one of the support bars of our clothesline.

You could say a tree clotheslined our clothesline even.

With that being the case, and room starting to run out in the yard to keep new trees healthy, it was time to say goodbye to the poles.

I suppose this could be considered a very uniquely destructive pole dance?

These things were properly cemented in at a certain point, plus holes at the top of the poles acted like a funnel to the ground so the area at the concrete was nice and wet.

We didn’t want to dig too deep or wide for the sake of the yard and the new trees that would be going in.

Like this new cherry tree.

While we’re out there, may as well check on the tree that had surgery too.

So far so good.
