    In Grade School

    I planted a fir tree in my backyard.  The thing grew like a weed and was soon taking up a good portion of the yard.  It's still there and still going strong after over 40 years.  I'm still going strong but 3,000 miles away from my tree.

    Dude. So much. I have seen some cool tree houses, one being a cube of mirrors surrounded by pines that is 'invisible.' I would not mind living in a tree at all.
