Possession & Progression

Lifting tool

Monday, July 15, 2019

It’s frustrating to find myself facing a dangling problem–like now, trying to pull from the ground a fence stump that catches and damages mower blades. I’ve a resource for lifting and removing this stump, but it’s a tool, long-not-seen. I’ve looked around and it’s disappeared. One summer, the tool helped me remove several post stumps that were the worst, and now finally, between terrain changes and equipment usages, other stumps have turned into problems.

I’m stymied by a locked-in-the-ground stump. This distressful situation forces me toward unplanned property care. A job I prefer to avoid is cleaning the tack room. Now, I must clear its contents and reorganize a jumble that could be hiding my stump-lifting tool. Tack room cleaning, a whole day job, means shifting through zillions of bits and pieces, to weigh the value of, categorize, and re-shelf. Worst, maybe the anti-stump tool ages-ago got moved elsewhere!

This opens up a chain of time-consuming efforts. Some tack room items should be stored in other, more logical places, which of course will lack space for them. This will force expanded cleaning out to reorganize and move things. It’ll also lead to a major, entire house-cleaning. To be clear, I’m for cleaning! There’s little more satisfying than having a clean tack room, clean storage sheds, and above all, a clean house interior. But with much routine maintenance to accomplish (weather permitting), there’s little time for the luxury of finding or creating proper spaces for everything.

It makes sense to leave the bastard post stump in place, and instead, put my time into resolving other more easily dispatched problems.

Dear Friends: Yet, it won’t quit bugging me–that stump lifter, where is it! Diana
