A Taciturn Tree.

I’ve been searching the news pages for something to comment on but without success. Today the world is full of Serious Things and the Olympics, and neither of those interests me very much.

So in desperation I decided to post another holiday pic.

This is Mel attempting to communicate with a tree in Scotland. It was the biggest tree I’ve ever seen, but it wasn’t particularly communicative. When she asked ‘Do you have any ancient wisdom to impart?’ it said ‘No.’ And when she said ‘Some use you are. I’d get more sense out of a rock,’ it replied ‘They make very poor ships’ and declined to say another word.
