Lost & Found
That being said, one day last season, I spent the afternoon with my own bucket of tools and worked on our 30 year old juniper hedge that for years had been encroaching out onto our driveway. Juniper is hard to prune and takes a long time to recover from pruning and to send out new growth. Peter had been on me for awhile to rip it out and start fresh but I just wasn’t ready to give up on it. It was a very mature hedge and it provided privacy as well as good protective habitat for my wild outside friends. So, I kept cutting and reshaping and after a full afternoon of getting bit by this plant I stepped back and was satisfied that I added a few more years on to it’s longevity.
And then I went in to shower.
I came up from my lower level suite dreaming of my dinner cocktail but was quickly distracted by the sound of a chainsaw. I went running to the front door and looked out to see my darling husband, chainsaw in hand, finishing what was left of my struggling hedge.
Now I would like to tell you about our location in terms of safety. The Timbrook Guesthouse location is not only perfect in terms of being centrally located and easily accessible to all venues in the Columbus area, including downtown, but it is also highly rated as one of the safest areas in Central Ohio. We are very fortunate that we get this added bonus along with the ease of proximity to nearly all points of the city. Add our wonderful 4 acres in and Peter and I think our estate is the perfect place to live and visit. Unless, you own a yoga mat..
Let’s bring back Randy. Once upon a time about 12 years ago, Randy met us at the door and was just so flustered and upset. He wanted to inform us that someone had broken into his car during the night while it was parked on our property. After exclaiming our concern and disbelief, we started asking him more questions about when, why, how and what was missing. Randy was under a lot of stress at the time with very much going on in his world so we ended up chalking it up to that because he told us what was missing from his car was some loose change, one CD and a yoga mat. Try as we might to keep a straight face because Randy was so concerned and serious, we later had to conclude that there was a very good chance that Randy was loosing his mind! However, we went along with his theory and told him from now on please do not leave such valuables in his truck because even though we have never had an issue here, never say never and it is wiser to always be prepared and smarter than the yoga mat thieves!
Needless to say within a weeks time, Randy sheepishly came knocking again only to give us the wonderful news that all said belongings were found and accounted for. Randy not only got his yoga mat back but also his mind! We loved Randy then and we love him even more now. But this is just a good reminder that when coming to The Timbrook Guesthouse for a visit, you may considering leaving your yoga mats at home!
