Mrs Oz is giving Ariel his final paycheck this weekend.
We have done our best at trying to get him on track but he is beyond repair.
Over the summer we lost 9 fruit trees to water starvation while we used twice the water we did the year before. He even kiled chives growing near the back step.
We were going to wait until we had a replacement but he is doing more harm than good.
He had his chance, and then a few more. Sometimes it is better to be a person down, than to drag everyone down carrying dead weight.
Being able to kill chives is a pretty bad sign.
