The Difference - Part 2

You see these 3 trees?

hmm, 2 trees and a stub? I can't tell you how many HOURS and HOURS were spent in this front yard and these 3 trees(because there were 3 growing up) were a vital part of those HOURS spent in the front yard. Why? you ask....that's simple. These 3 trees were "1st base", "2nd base", and "3rd base". We played lots of kickball growing up. That was one of the great things about being part of '4 kids in 5 years'...we were close enough in age that we usually played together...fought alot, but also played.

When I was in high school, lightening struck "2nd base" and that is why it was eventually cut down.

Yes, to you, this just looks like 2 trees and a stub, but to me...oh so many homeruns in kickball because I was "that good"...or at least I like to think so.
