I think that I shall never see, a thing as lovely as a tree.
Down the street from me there is a home with a great sculpture in the front yard. Texas is known for furious thunderstorms. A couple of years ago we had one and lightning struck a beautiful 80 year old huge Oak tree in this neighbor's yard. It split the tree in half. They did not want to remove the trunk so they had a chainsaw sculptor create two dogs on top of the trunk from the wood. One dog is an English Whippet which represents the aristocratic dog and the other is a Terrier which represents the everyman's dog. They sit up looking so regal and proper together. What a wonderful tribute to remember a wonderful old tree.
