Grandgirlie and I stood at the bottom of the massive cottonwood tree. . .
watching her Daddy climb up the trunk.
It used to have walls I explained to her.
She waved and chattered ..completely unconcerned.
Since it was built. .
a few other inhabitants have taken refuge in the tree house.
I used to climb up there too. .but until they take a cornbroom to the cobwebs and nests. . .and what not all. .
I'll just watch.
He said. . ." I wonder if Dad has been looking for this?"
I zoomed in. .
"you guys". . .I said. .
"it's probably safe to bring it down and confess"
And. . .so he did .. .
and yes. . .the annoyance of losing that level had long since left.
