So, it was all a bit embarrasing for me when I decided to climb that apple tree during the speeches and official events to get a better photo. I told a few kids that were already up there to, "move over a bit, as I am coming up". Hell, I'd been up it hundreds of times before, even if not for 30 years. Nope, I couldn't get up it. I even slipped down the rough bark and took some skin off my belly. The kids up
the tree were all laughing at me, as were a few adults on the ground. I snuck away.
One day when no one is around and looking and laughing and I'm by myself, I'll climb up that tree again just for
old times sake. But I'll probably bring a ladder.
