That’s a nice, strong dominant leader your neighbor’s got going there.

I just consulted the Magic 8-Ball (arborist’s edition) and it said, “Split crotch unlikely.”

And that’s a fine prognosis!

Actually, it breaks up into three parts just above the top of what you see in the photo. I've often looked at that spot and thought: 1. You could sit there, 2. It would be scary. 3. Even if I wanted to sit there, it would be hard to get there. 4. No matter how long I live and how many times I look at that spot, I will never sit there.

Ohio, right now.

Note the distance between view-obstructing trees.

The backyards of home,
What makes them so homey?
They beat foreign frou frou
And that's no bologna.

Okay, I just consulted a regular Magic 8-Ball and it said, “Ask again later.” So I did. It said, “Reply hazy try again.” So I did. It said, “As I see it yes.”

It was then I realized I never asked it a proper question. So I did. I asked, “Is Professor Althouse right that she’ll never sit in that tree?”

Then I gave it a shake and turned it over.

What did it say?

“You may rely on it.”

Spooky!

5. Just thing of how many squirrels nest in that tree.

We haven't had a good snow here since 97. It sucks, because winter here is basically cloudy drizzle... no one told me winter in Knoxville was basically like living in Seattle!!
