He warned Cindy and I to stay back far enough from him while he was swinging the machete' to clear a path for us to move ahead.. I mean He was swinging that machete' chopping away and pulling away , crossing us over fallin trees and side walking soil/root walls to keep going determined to find a tree he Had Named " The Shirley Tree" , Ohhhhhhh He knew where it was That was'nt a problem .It has just been a while since he was in that part of the woods and it had grown over,,


[Linked Image]

In the mean Time I had stepped out of a shoe in a bog, Cindy was sneezing, Shadow was loving it, and we both was taking Pictures,


Truth Be told This was the first time in my life I had ever been in the woods of any kind so it was cooooooool for me!! grin lol lol

I'm not sure we should let Shirley see that stump. After her reaction and obsession with analyzing the "Gotta love trees" topic, she may see more than she wants to see when she sees "Shirley's Tree" nervous

This is a GREAT tree Bill, and I'm proud that you named it The Shirley Tree!!
I'm going to give this a whirl:

The first impression I got here, is of that alien head coming out of that cracked open, bloody stomach in The Alien.

Then a massive, hairy body started forming.........

By the time I got to here I can see that he is an ugly, funny, silly Troll!!!
The whole middle part is his face...his eyes, his big bulb of a nose, and his sharp toothed lopsided grin. From the top part of his head starts massive shoulders swinging down into arms; his body continues down from his face forming two, slightly bowed stumpy legs!!! He's probably picking his nose with that long green fern frond!!!..........

But then again, after looking at this more, it could be just a large head...after the eyes and big bulb nose, his whole face seems to sag way down, and his mouth is big, and open with thick lips, and food in his mouth!!!.....

Going back up to this picture....I can see a gorilla family; there is the round face of mama showing two eyes and that funny shaped gorilla nostrils, and a lighter colored mouth and cheek area;standing facing her a taller is papa..see his beady shiny eyes, and slightly open mouth, and body coming down; then at the bottom of them, near Bill, and just above the green fern frond is a little baby gorilla face!!!!
