This is a true story, that goes back to when my parents were a a young couple.

There was a deformed Elk tree in the front yard of my grandparents house. My mother, had a dream one night that this low hanging branch gouged out my oldest sisters eyeball. Like a good catholic family, sundays where spent going to family affairs.

When we showed up at my dads family house, My cousin had a patch on her eye. My mom asked what it was from.

“The tree branch caught her”.

My mom looked at my dad, he went out and cut that branch down.

I still look at that tree. The stories it could tell.
