Did you ever have a tree house?
May 8, 2016 12:29pm CST
I love watching that one show on, I think, Nat Geo maybe, about building tree houses. These aren't those kinds some had as a kid (which I wanted and never could have despite having the trees for it, living on a county park), some of these are homes one would be proud to live in. They can even have plumbing making fake tree trunks to hide the pipes and spanning multiple trees. I actually think I would love that, so maybe some day, if I do the tiny house thing, I will have a tree house. Of course i have dogs, so it would have to have some kind of ramp up, oh maybe a drawbridge! Did you have a treehouse growing up? I am not even sure I have ever known someone with one.

As a matter of fact, yes. Nice one, too. Large enough for 6 teenage kids comfortably, had a shingled sloping roof, lock on the door, lights (with a switch by the door) powered by a car battery, and I ran 200 feet of speaker wire through the treeline to my house and had it attached to my stereo there. It was quite the place, and I and a few neighbors (and assorted hangers-on) had some good times there for a few years.

Just thinking what happened to my response to this discussion? Must be me pressing some wrong buttons on the android Will have to think and recall what I had replied out last time I was here.... okay, It will be tough so let me skip[ trying to think and bother my brains and write something fresh two years back, my landlady's daughter and granddaughter (aged 4 then) had come to India and visited their family here. They stay in Johannesburg, SA. The house we stay in is on the first floor and as the ladies who own this place love trees, plants and flowers, fruits, they have some trees (6 or 7) around in the campus. The cute kid when came upstairs, she was all happy about the greenery around. Her momma said to her that this is the tree house. That was the first time I realized and heard anyone talking of Tree Houses beyond the Phantom Comics I mentioned on @much2say. Your description of the tree house(s) makes me interested. I dont know at the moment, if that would be worth an experience and if I would love to spend all my life in one, but for sure, a few days of holidaying is something I would very much look forward to.

I love to watch that too. See what they are able to do. I never had a tree house. My one next door neighbor did and let me get up in it once as I recall. I was a tree climber like my mom. She broke her arm once jumping off a roof. She was such an adventurer.
