In fact, the mere act of opening the box will determine the state of the cat, although in this case there were three determinate states the cat could be in: these being Alive, Dead, and Bloody Furious.”

What a great climbing tree. I smiled at Folly Hill, too. One of my best friends lives near Folly Beach in South Carolina.
Exactly! Although you might need a leg up first. Folly hill is topped with a gothic tower. Do you know how Folly beach got the name?
There’s a very brief and very interesting history here that includes the assertion that around the time of the Civil War it got its name, which refers to the dense foliage there.
Extraordinarily beautiful! Specimen trees like this have such presence, I can just imagine being there.
Thank you. I’m glad the oak’s presence was conveyed by the photos. There’s something about leaf-filtered green light that’s elusive to capture.
That is a majestic and wonderful tree, Allison! Those lost limb scars are beautiful.
Magnificent. I used to love climbing trees, and this one looks perfect for that. 😃
Me too, Cathy! Thanks
