|SEND THE KID UP THE TREE|
One Saturday afternoon some of the branch elders gathered at the church lot to clean off the coconut trees. The coconuts grow in clusters at the top of these tall giants. As the individual fruit ripens it crashes down with mighty power damaging anything unfortunate enough to be under it. The many trees we have in the back yard don't do any damage but the 1/2 dozen in the front yard are dangerous to members and their vehicles. I watched them for a while before asking if someone would go back up so I could take some pictures to show the g-kids back home. They sent the 10 year old kid up who had been helping them. I was worried for a minute but as I watched him jump up, leap onto the trunk and begin to climb, I realized it was something he probably did very often.
