Do you know to climb trees?

yes, i do. it was one of my favorite things to do as a child. we had this tree in our backyard that my little brother and i climbed to the very top once. we never did it again because we found out how slim the branches there were when the wind blew and we found ourselves parallel to the ground from way up high. but we loved that tree; we attached a rope to one of its branches and made a swing using a tire. we have lots of memories of it and were very sorry when a storm felled it. there was also this other tree that had one thick, sturdy branch which my childhood friends and i would swing on with our hands, like a monkey bar. for a time, we would go straight to that tree after school, either swinging on that branch or playing marbles on the ground underneath its branches. life's pleasures were much simpler then.

Yup, Sharay, I have climbed trees when I was younger. The tree must have lots of branches, so that it's easier to climb; not coconut or palm trees - those I can't. My only problem is, I find it hard coming down - it's more frightening!
