Out of limbo. Cameras, please.
It was just like that intense movie star in Sunset Boulevard.
Ignored for so long, Abandoned to the fates.
Long time friends gone. Forgotten by once attentive acquaintances
What? Waking like Sleeping Beauty?
“Now? Oh, Is it time for my close-up?”
Pampered and prepared. (Probably shaking a few squirrels out of her hair)
An aging beauty ascends before adoring fans and paparazzi.
(Talk about saving face.)
The Ultimate Lifestyle Lift!
Wait! Don’t flee!
OK. humor me.
One final obsessive amazement of this feat.
These videos show an engineering marvel.
Heavy lifting is an understatement:
Click here to watch them loft her high.
The Ghirardi Compton Oak surprised.
Next, the rotund Grand Dame escorted – with her anxious attendants pacing.
Click here to watch the procession and installation of the tree.
Steadily assisted with patience and determination – to see her safely arrive to her new abode.
With surprising willingness, she eagerly glides forward.
A brand new stage! (with a few photo memories of the past)
Adventurous. Flexible. Able to adapt to new surroundings.
All planks for success – especially at an advanced age.
Fell free to stretch out and dig in tree!
Rest a bit, then maybe some thoughts about an Annual Ghirardi Oak Tree Celebration in your honor.
A celebration of protecting the past for the future?
But that later.
For now, rest, tree.
Just be content to be.
Watch the videos – really.
Humans are so capable when they want to be.
Promise this is the last episode.
Regularly scheduled blogging nails it on Mondays, Wednesday, and Fridays
Mostly predictable (not),
