You were not alone before you met this tree! 🙂
Sally, can you hear me laughing! That set me up on a rainy day.
No you are NOT alone!
I can assure you!
Linda, my opening line was very much tongue in cheek. At least these days I no longer have hollows in my hollows!
You were never alone!
Probably not but until recently, I didn’t have middle age spread either!
Why should we humans have all the fun?
Do trees have fun? That one tickled my fancy!
A good laugh for the day that’s in it (Freezing, rainy, cold…….)
Nancy (comment below) is on the ball, the tree looks like it was encased in a corset for about fifty years!
Yes! A too tight corset!
Haha! Is that middle age spread . . . or a tree that dates back to the middle ages?
Overfed Nancy and showing signs f middle age and middle age spread.
I think it wears its middle age spread quite beautifully! If only mine had this much dignity! 🙂
It stood elegantly too, Brenda.
and it’s the public sphere, day in day out! it doesn’t just a pack a sad and run indoors and hide away – “here I am warts and all…”
And all the more interesting for it, Cathy!
Blimey ! .. a ‘muffin top’ tree. … 🙂
Why didn’t I think of that!
Everything ages doesn’t it. One of the great surprises of life.
It certainly does, Dianne. Pity age does not give us notice.
Antrim Castle? Looks like I’ve got a bit more research to add to the family genealogy. My aunt (father’s older brother’s wife) was an Antrim descendant here in the U. S. I do know the U. S. bunch was involved in the Revolutionary war, but so far have not found the first arrival here. I wonder if there is a connection. That old tree might just be old enough to know.
Welcome Aquila to my blog. This post might give you more information about the area around Antrim Castle.
Thanks, Grannymar. Being a history buff, genealogist and generally far too curious and enjoying a good puzzle to solve, finding connections to things is always grand. Now to find that connection.
