I’m feeling sad!

what was

Why sad? I’ve so much to be glad about. My wife loves me; I love her. My dogs are lying at my feet. I’m enjoying a cup of coffee.

But I love trees and today we had eight cut down and their roots ground out. They took many years to grow. They weren’t sick. They were in the way. Electricity has become so expensive that we’ve had solar panels installed, and they stopped the sun shining onto the panels in the afternoons.

We have a heap of mulch which will make my gardening wife happy, but I’m sad

what is!

I guess that in the long run it is for the best; but I’m still sad!
