Up a Tree

Between Rain showers, I went out to the back courtyard for a breather.  It was completely deserted. Except...someone invisible said "hi". I looked around...nobody.  then  I looked UP.

                                  

There, fifty feet over my head was a tree trimmer at work with a hand saw.  He had a chain saw hanging from his belt.  At first I did not see him, but when he started down I could see him climbing down.

                                  

I used to climb trees when I was a kid.  I did it for fun.  I never thought of it as a way to make a living.  What a neat occupation.  Climb trees and get paid for it.

Oh what a laugh, I hope you enjoyed watching him and reminiscing about your own tree climbing.  I used to love climbing trees too but used to have trouble getting down again.  Hugs.  Terry x

Great Pictures, he was so far up that tree in the first picture he blended in.

I used to climb trees when I was young. However I am terrified of caterpillars. One day I climbed the old black walnut tree in our yard and when I had gone as high as I could, I wrapped my hand around a branch and a caterpillar. I almost leaped out of the tree.
