      Am I first to respond?
      Yes. Even this is a first.
      Rochelle: this looks soooooooooooo cooooooooooooool!
      You should send this to all of the local newspapers, AP,
      and any outlet covering north America. I have never
      in 64 years, seen anything this cute. Not even a basket
      full of baby bunnies.
      I mean it.
      Great work.
      PS: I was out all day at one of my doctor's office.

      I don’t see very well but is there a man in the tree? Great photo.

        Yes, a rather young man. I asked him if his Mom knew that he does this.
        Hope he gets paid well.

        It’s a small picture... he’s about 90 ft up there.

    The drought in California has stressed a lot of trees, especially Ponderosa Pines, in the foothills and mountains, leaving them vulnerable to tiny but deadly bark beetles.  Got lots of pics and videos of this one which was a threat to our house.  These young guys did an amazing job of taking the 100 ft tree down without damage to our property. Hated to see it go, but it was definately dead.
    I asked the young climber if his Mom knew he was doing this. He said she did, and she didn't really like the idea -- but he was very proficient and effective.
    (Hope your Dr. is helping you.)

    Early this morning a pair of colourful Rainbow Lorikeet Birds flew into the Greviellea Shrub, trying to dodge these three attacking Mynnah birds, as I went outside to the Recycle bin. These non native Mynnah birds are pesky things.

    I planted three banana trees in my front yard this morning. Luckily they only get about 10 feet high so I will never need to worry like you have had to with your Ponderosa Pine.
    I live in a rain forest but it has not rained in about a week. Nothing compared to California, I realize, but my plants are looking stressed out. Where is the rain?

    Today, without warning, the weeds overtook my front gardens. I don't know how that happened so suddenly. I have to be more vigilant in the future.
