Tree Man

There comes a time in most little boys lives when they just have to learn to climb trees. Grandson Gavin recently got to that age. In his backyard is a nice kid size magnolia tree. So up the tree he went. Parental supervision was very close by for this first time event.

It is not a really tall tree but it has lots of branches to fit hands and feet. There is a boy in the tree in this next picture.



Even knowing where Gavin is the OFM still has trouble finding him in the tree so the photo was cropped and enhanced a little to make the boy more visible.



Your first time climbing a tree is a great memory of a day of trying to have tooooo much fun.

  1. That is for sure a first time experience that he will probably always remember.

  3. I pulled up to my ex-wife's house once to pick up my daughter for the weekend. The ex was sitting in a folding chair in the front yard and after a little small-talk I asked where her 8 ear old son from the second marriage was. She didn't say a word, just pointed straight up with a 'what's a mother to do' look on her face. Yep, there he was, perched high up in one of the 80' pines peppered through the neighborhood. The first branches are a good 20' up so I have no idea how he managed to climb that thing. . .
