Sparky was recently nearly injured during
a tree cutting incident. He was in the back yard cutting
down a huge elm tree to make way for the future expansion of the
landscaping when a sudden gust of wind came up and caused the
huge tree to topple prematurely while he was still sawing the

The morning started out reasonably calm
and Sparky took all normal precautions to avoid any further
industrial accidents that seem to plague him during any such
activities. He first carefully sawed off any lower
branches on the tree that could have poked out an eye or torn
some clothing. As the branches became harder to reach he
went and got his outdoor rocking chair to use as a suitable
platform to continue cutting of the branches.
After clearing out the pile of branches
from under the tree to avoid any possibility of accidents,
Sparky scooted his rocking chair around the other way so he
wouldn't over exert himself while sawing through the massive
trunk of the large elm tree, which towered nearly three feet
above his head.
As you can see from the accompanying
pictures, when the gust of wind came up, the gigantic tree,
which was partially sawed through, toppled over and landed
directly on Sparky, knocking both him and his chair over before
anybody even knew what was happening.
Fortunately, Sparky was uninjured, and his
chair suffered only a few loosened nails and was quickly
repaired. The tree went into the
trash and it is now in the city dump.
