My kids and I used to go horseback riding when I got off work or on weekends, and
when we found a nice tree we would mark it as the one.....with a piece of ribbon, remember the location and go back with the shotgun and shoot it off at the base.....tote it home and
level it and put it up. The kids thought that was a hoot....but now that trees need to be
conserved....they nor I use the real ones anymore.
If we ever buy our own property instead of renting we may look into buying live ones to
replant.......a lot of folks here do that. A lot of trees are going to be need to fix all the damage
from the tornadoes on April 27 in Alabama....it is the saddest thing to look at miles of
devasted trees..........a lot of the homes are being rebuilt but the trees are stripped and broken
down to the ground.
If you always do what you've always done,
You'll always be who you've always been!!!!!!
"Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage
is the quiet voice at the
end of the day saying "I
will try again tomorrow!"
