  •  Why? (7+ / 0-)

    I mean just that - Why?  Why would a church of a whopping 44 members pay to have someone's trees and shrubs ripped out?  It's either the stupidest thing I have ever heard of a church doing with its resources or the most spiteful.

    As a gardener, I can tell you I would be absolutely, totally spitting mad.  It's the equivalent of walking into their church and ripping out and carrying off some pews.  I hope she takes them to court and has a lawyer throw the book at them.  Not every charge will stick, but the ones that do should carry a lesson and a penalty with them.

    We must never lose it, or sell it, or give it away. We must never let them take it from us.

    •  A lot of rural farmers have access to a (0+ / 0-)

      tree logger, and would loan it and themselves to run it to hurt someone they feared.

      Do I correctly assume that the part in the beginning of the diary about decor was to tell us that they might be seeming a little strange to the neighbors.

      Also the part about not getting around to the outside yet?

      More facts, more history, more indications of the context.

      Rural Georgia is scary. I went to school at Florida State in Tallahassee. I know these people.

      It's dead rural, about a thousand population, surrounded by farmland.

      109 miles northeast of Tallahassee. Dangerous.

      This is a reality-based community. Those who wish to live outside it should find a new home. This isn't it. -- Kos--

        I specifically ASKED if they were Goth  and they aren't, Gothic Decor has to do with a style of decorating that may be Goth in the sense people mean it--but can also include simply  Victorian Gothic architecture and furniture., The list runs the gamut of fairly mainstream folks. She attends a Baptist church and they don't welcome Goths, generally. So, no, you got it completely wrong.

        What she was saying was simply that she isn't a heavy duty gardener type. She was sticking to what was already there.  I don't garden either. I kill plants--the curse of the Black Thumb. My husband handles the outdoor stuff.

        The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.
