SEE THE TREE, ....

SAINT CLAIR SHORES, MICHIGAN

how big it's grown, but....
can't do the next line.
I don't have any friends.
Actually, this is the first window
I see when I'm leaving my exclusive
Saint Clair Shores high rise condo.
P.S. I should set something straight
about the friends; I was kidding.
I have a lot of them, including you all.

It's Michigan and it is Winter.
Do I need to say more?
Besides, she has such a lovely voice.

Your image accomplished one thing for me, Larry. It made me wonder about Char's state of mind. Is this the way she spends her time?

Nice image and you have friends...who are we? Chopped liver? LOL!

Beautiful shot Larry!

Yes, Dave. It's all that and more.

That song always gives me a lump in my throat. You DO have friends Larry! What kind of tree is it btw?

"Exclusive...high-rise condo" sounds impressive. I assume there is a doorman on duty at all hours and that tenants are transported among the many floors by elevators that are vibration-free and make not a sound. Fragrant flowers adorn the sumptuous lobby throughout the year. Sidewalks and driveways are kept snow-free, even during the wildest storms. Windows get washed often by contractors who do not disturb the flower beds. The trash containers are airtight and concealed behind an attractive fence or wall. All utilities are underground, unlike the situation at the neighboring properties. Did I miss anything?

Long song Larry. Excellent capture of this winter scene!

See the tree, how big it's grown
But friend it hasn't been too long
It wasn't big
I laughed at her and she got mad
The first day that she planted it, was just a twig
Then the first snow came
And she ran out to brush the snow away
So it wouldn't die
Came runnin' in all excited
Slipped and almost hurt herself
And I laughed till I cried
She was always young at heart
Kinda dumb and kinda smart and I loved her so
And I surprised her with a puppy
Kept me up all Christmas Eve two years ago
And it would sure embarrass her
When I came in from workin' late
'Cause I would know
That she'd been sittin' there and cryin'
Over some sad and silly late, late show


And honey, I miss you
And I'm bein' good
And I'd love to be with you
If only I could


She wrecked the car and she was sad
And so afraid that I'd be mad
But what the heck
Though I pretended hard to be
Guess you could say she saw through me
And hugged my neck
I came home unexpectedly
And caught her cryin' needlessly
In the middle of the day
And it was in the early Spring
When flowers bloom and robins sing
She went away


And honey, I miss you
And I'm bein' good
And I'd love to be with you
If only I could


One day while I was not at home
While she was there and all alone
The angels came
Now all I have is memories of Honey
And I wake up nights and call her name
Now my life's an empty stage
Where Honey lived and Honey played
And love grew up
And a small cloud passes overhead
And cries down on the flower bed
That Honey loved


And see the tree how big it's grown
But friend it hasn't been too long
It wasn't big
And I laughed at her and she got mad
The first day that she planted it, was just a twig

Very nice Larry.
Dont like the white stuff, although it does look pretty.
Look forward to many more like this.
