The Friday Flashback.

The Friday Flashback this week is carrying on the tree theme and comes from September 2009. It is called:

CLIMBING TREES.

Flynn: I am a good tree climber and I love to climb all trees. This is an old thorn tree and a lot of the branches are dead so I have to be careful. Eric is not a good tree climber, he usually watches me from the ground. When he does try to climb, mum says he is so awkward, he's like a camel coming back down.

Eric: It doesn't look so far up that tree now I am standing on the hedge. I wonder if I should try.

This isn't so hard, I think I will keep climbing.

Wow! Look how high I am. It looks dark up there with all the leaves and the ivy. I've had to turn my lasers on so I can see where Iam going.

Hey Flynn! Look at me up here!

This is easy peasy! What do you mean Flynn, I need to go back? A dead branch? Okay I'm coming back.

It's a good job Flynn was watching, that branch could have broken and I would have crashed to the ground.

Flynn: I'm not taking my eyes off Eric until he's back down. I don't want him landing on my head.

  1. You are a good brother to keep an eye on Eric, even if it is just so he will not land on you!

    YOU are a superb climber but it's good your brother was there to tell you about that dead branch. He is watching your back for you.

  5. I agree Flynn, having Eric land on your head would be a catastrophe. You are a good climber though; Mount Everest next!

  9. Good job Flynn keeping Eric safe. We sure are glad you were there and also glad he didn't land on you. That would have hurt both of you.
    Have a great week end.

  10. Wow, Eric, we're so impressed you decided to give that tree a climb!! We hope you didn't land on Flynn's head coming down!

  11. Well, since we don't have any real trees to climb, we think you're both pretty darned good at it! (We're glad Eric didn't land on your head, Flynn!)

  13. We don't think we'd like Eric landing on our heads if he fell out the tree - we think we would have big headaches!! It's a good job you were able to point out the dead branch Flynn.

  26. Yes, I remember this one quite well. It's what led me to remark earlier that Eric seems to be more nimble since he trimmed down a little.

    Flynn is quite the acrocat there, and it must be brotherly love that compels him to watch out for Eric -- not just concern about his own head.

  27. That looks like a great tree to climb with all these gnarled branches, but you are right to keep watch of your brother when he's up there!

  28. What fabulous climbers you are! Wish we could come with you and you could teach all of the fun things you can do.
    Something about you and trees drives mum wild! She thinks you look extra beautiful and your photos are so very fascinating. Her heart would race with joy if she looked up and saw you standing in a big leafy tree. We think she would love to join you in your adventures just as much as we would!
