The luckiest boy in the world is about to embark on my most anticipated adventure ever. I have butterflies in my stomach and eagerness radiating from all pores in my body. This is a big deal for the same boy that has flown in a helicopter to the top of isolated, snow-capped mountains, hiked to the top of a place knows as Catz Eye, scuba dove with sharks, know people that have jumped out of planes, done a walking safari with a shotgun strapped man in Africa, taken LSD in Disney World, and even once had dinner with a couple that hiked to the peak of Mt Kilimanjaro! I am on my way to have a private magic lesson with Penn Jillette, probably our planets most interesting person. Wish me luck that my plane does not go down, and if it does, that the plane was full of fat, delicious people that I can keep myself nourished on until I am able to reschedule my magic lesson.
Large amounts of freezing rain are the arch-enemy of our favorite tree. No more playing in the low hanging branches for Charlie the Dog.
