Counting the Years

I showed this tree up closer last year.

 

I did not name this short video just in case there was any question.

 

 

I was looking for the song It's Good to be Alive by Nitty Gritty Dirt Band but it is not on YouTube. 

Here is a fellow doing a fine solo of it.

Beautiful wood!

The title of the video is quite funny, I don't know who named that.... because first of all - it's not even a Salsa! And millionaire Gianluca Vacchi's fiance is anything but old... and I'd even argue that HE's not old! smile He's got some def moves though, that's fo sho!

FYI - the song they're dancing to in your video is "our" song - Annette sang it at our wedding! smile
Mary MacADNski: OMG So much to unpack here. You know who the couple in the video is?! The whole laugh is that this is certainly not salsa. The best yet, this is your and Frank's song and I don't even know what it is.
Lots of texture. On the stump, not the guy.
Mary MacADNski: My friend Larry, who cut the tree said the texture is because the saw was dull.

You and Lisl are on-song today, Mary!
Mary MacADNski: Such different types of wood too.
Jolie photo, j'aime le mélange des couleurs.
Mary MacADNski: The brown is very rich!

I like the way you have the light so that it picks out the saw marks.
Mary MacADNski: The cutter told me the saw marks were from a dull chainsaw.

You are today on the same page as Lisl - an interesting image of this recently cut tree.
Mary MacADNski: I was so takem by the denseness of the apple wood. Lisl's shows the exact opposite, a very fast growing tree.

Which is the healthier exercise, tree chopping or salsa?
Mary MacADNski: I think the wood chopping is a more specific form of exercise whereas salsa dancing is a more conditioning type of exercise. I do it most days.

Snap!
Mary MacADNski: We are having tree toppling wings at the moment. At first light, I checked all the trees after the year I had last year.
A fine chunk of wood
Mary MacADNski: It all got burned in stoves.
If I'm not mistaken, Mary, you're counting the rings because TODAY is your birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Mary MacADNski: You are pretty clever, Miss. The Glad to be Alive is a clue too.
The heart wood looks pretty sound.
Mary MacADNski: It was sound. I invited a wood turning friend to come get some but he never came. It all got used as firewood.
A fine history of that tree on show, and it seems birthday greetings are in order so Happy Birthday Mary.
Mary MacADNski: Yes, an ancient apple tree that bore very good apples. Thank you for the good wishes.

Happy Birthday, Mary. And I know it is good to be alive!! Counting the years, you know Mary, you are as old as you feel... and in my case sometimes that is 30 and sometimes 130 years old grin....
Hope you celebrated in style!
Mary MacADNski: We are just a couple of months apart and you will catch up soon. I feel 30 today after a nice birthday.
smile And I'm SO SORRY I missed that it was your birthday!! I usually try to be so on top of those - I'm sorry - I hope you had a fantastic day!!!!

Gianluca & Giorgia (I'm on a first name basis... smile ) have a lot of videos on YouTube, and apparently even more on Twitter. They're pretty funny. He clearly just LOVES to dance! And I LOVE that!

And the song is from one of those vampire movies, which we've never watched... but when Frank and I were just discovering and revealing our love for each other - this song seemed to express our feelings so perfectly. The fear and the bravery... each having been through so much but knowing that this is IT - and worth taking that risk...

Mary MacADNski: Thanks for the BD wishes. I had a great day and better evening with unexpected visitors in the midst of our storm.

Thanks for the info on the dancers. I thought the one I found was hilarious. I thought it was comedy.
