Godzilla is a rite of passage!

Here is a picture of me with Godzilla after a 4 hour needle pulling session. October 31, 2012. I also removed all the wire except of the guy wire.

I'm exhausted! 

Godzilla is sitting there laughing at me!  "Ha!  Is that all you've got!?"

Lol!

You are far to clean to have worked 4 hours, almost as if posing for a Bonsai End Catalog.....

Don, I agree. Having spent several days over several years decandling, needle pulling and repotting thiss fellow, Adair is too fashionable to have actually worked. Probably done by his minions while he daydeamed of an electric car......

Hey Adair, it's good that the needle plucking didn't last any longer. You know what they say, if it lasts longer than 4 hours, seek medical help  !  :o

You guys are too much!

That was the first day of my first Intensive.  The pressure was on!  I had to learn to unwire properly, learn how to reach inside JBP with my palms up, pull needles properly... all never far from Boon's watchful eye!

What you can't see are all the needles I pulled.  They're everywhere.  In my shoes, in the pockets in my apron, all over the floor, in my hair... I swear they'd be in my pants if Boon hadn't given me that apron!  And it was a brand new one, so THAT's why I look so clean. 

Just removing all Peter's wire took me a couple hours.  That was the first time  I had ever removed wire by spinning it off rather than cutting it off.  So, it took me a while.  Now, it's second nature.

That was also Toby and Freddie's first Intensive.  They're much more laid back now!

John, the only person I know who has minions is Boon. We pay him to work on his trees.

Meanwhile, I feel like I'm supporting the whole economy of California, what with buying trees from Boon, and Teslas from Elon.

Don, I can only save one State at a time.

I'll let Judy save Michigan!  Lol!

I am enjoying the trees I've purchased from you. I'm sure we'll do more business!

Happy Holidays!
