A Family of Trees

These two bright orange trees in my yard remind me of Andy and myself every time I see them.

I know what you're thinking. You're thinking that I've lost my mind. Which is probably true. But humor me anyway by taking a closer look, ok?

See the one on the right there? See how all of its leaves have changed while the majority of trees around it still have their original green leaves? That one's me, and the leaves are my hair: prematurely gray long before the hair on the heads of my peers.

The one on the left has lost most of its leaves while similarly aged, nearby trees are holding on to theirs. That one's Andy. I'll leave you to draw your own conclusions about that.



  2. I'm glad someone gets my humor. Now the trouble I'm in with Drew is worth it. :-)
