IDK man, RPD’s tree branches can fall on your noggin at pretty much any time.

And IDK how much small, 15 year old Audi’s are worth but it can’t be that much. So that’s why I say totaled.

RPD’s Panhandle trees will kill somebody one of these days, and our RPD is cool with that it seems.

Oh well.

Well there we go.

Thanks, RPD!

While you’re at it, why not fix the walking path along Oak? I don’t think this is a money issue, it’s a something-else issue. It has to do with your priorities, RPD…

I’ve never seen this kind of tree-as-utility-pole setup, in all my years.

I’ll tell you, Certain People about town will NOT like seeing this.

I’ll get you started:
