Watching these guys take these dead Ash trees down just wears you out.  We have been a captive audience since 9:00 this morning.  This is hard work.   Not only do they remove the dead they keep the good ones alive.  Deering has been treating two beautiful Ash Trees, male and female, for many years in our front yard.  They are about 100 years old.

Below I’ve announced the passing of Mim Steel.  Bill and Mim Steel were an important part of my early Leland experiences, both on the golf course and with the yacht club.

Great pictures, as always Mr. B! So sorry for the loss of your friend, it looks like she lived a pretty long life. Godspeed Mim Steel.

PS She actually was born in 1914 and would have been 102 in December. Her first summer in the Land of Delight was 1919 at Forest Lodge on Long Lake.

Thank you, Keith. Mom went peacefully in her own bed in her home with Dad nearby. She lived a full life and Leland was such an important part. For many years she followed the Leland Report and always loved your photos. One of my favorites is a photo you took of Mom, Dad, Biscuit and me which they have proudly on display in their apartment.
