Where are their brains?

Why is that when people get older they tend to get quite pedantic?? Okay...... I realise I might be generalising...... just a tad(heehee) ..... but MrGee and I are experiencing this first hand!!!
Look at this stunning tree........

This tree is in our complex. It is right next to our house(we're the driveway on the left) and in my opinion it is the most beautiful Leopard tree I've ever seen!
Some older folk in our complex are wanting to cut this beaut of a tree down because....... wait for it......... it is causing cracks in the tar road!!!
For goodness sake....... I don't even notice the cracks in the road because I'm looking upwards at the magnificant tree! Trim the roots...... do whatever you need to do.
As my dad so eloquently would say "Are their brains in their bum?"................ perhaps!?

That is a fab tree- I agree. Yes, sometimes people can tend to get a bit persnickety sometimes about these kind of things.

Think the have been sitting on the brains too long they are being deprived of a bit of good old oxygen, kindly supplied by the tree. Tar can be fixed, the tree could never be replaced. Silly ol' bats!

Halfmoon...love the word...persnickety..oh yes...persnickety, has a nice ring to it! persnickety....

Hey Fifi!!
You are right that tree is delightful. How terrible that folks want to cut it down. Maybe you are right, their brains in in their behinds...... *snicker, snicker* I wonder if they could possbily get to the roots and take care of it that way. Maybe a letter is in order...tell them how you feel!

Is it THEIR tree -- so they can cut it down? :sigh: I'm less mature then your other commentators... the tree cutters are dopes... too bad. That is a lovely tree.

I just saw my name on your side bar -- °Ü° THANKS Fee!
