Subject: Collateral Damage

It's inconvenient enough when the long awaited rains load the leaves so heavily as to cause huge limbs to separate from the main trunk of our big trees and fall. Ite doubly inconvenient when those limbs come to rest on neighbors' properties.

I don't have that many neighbors whose land isn't as wooded as ours, but the one who would be bothered by a downed limb phoned me late this evening to tell me that if I didn't care he'd cut the limb into three sections and put them over on me.
I didn't know there was a limb down on his propeety to begin with, and he's had a stroke and doesn't get about that well. To further make me feel guilty about the limb, the man is in his mid 80s.

I told him if I wasn't called into school tomorrow, I go up and take care of it in the morning. If I get the call to sub, I'll take care of it in the afternoon when I get home. He seemed satisfied with those arrangements. The issue goes deeper, however. He's been after me to sell him the strip that adjoins his land ever since I bought the larger tract of which the piece he is desiring is a part. Every time he finds an excuse to call me about windfalls or too high grass, he asks if I'm ready to sell yet, to keep him from complaining.

I wouldn't sell to him if I were on the verge of bankruptcy.
Is that vindictive?
