Optimistic by opting to miss sticks.


And the weekly photo challenge is Optimistic for which I feature the launch of a tree-climbing proclivity in then-younger R.

See my tum? I'm as fit as can be -  I bet that I can climb that tree ...

See my tum? Fit as can be –
I bet that I can climb that tree …

I'm on my way, but now to find A way round roots that wind and wind ...

I’m setting off, but now to find
A way round roots that wind and wind …

Ah, here we go; I'm on my way. Don't move from there, I've come to play!

Ah, here we go; I’m on my way;
Don’t move, you lot, I’ve come to play!

  7. I saw trees like that in Hawaii. They were Banyan trees. Maybe that’s what this one is…or part of the same family? At any rate, a great tree to have around the neighborhood! 🙂

    🙂 She was such a cutie! That tree looks like some sort of fig with its roots, but I may be entirely off the mark.
