Irma caused a purrsonal loss that I’m finally ready to share.
I lost my favorite banana tree.
Practically every day, I would climb it until I was high enough to look over our fence, then I would get the neighbor dog’s attention (he is a pesky, noisy fellow)…. When he saw me, he would over-react and start barking and barking and barking. Eventually, his owner would come out and scold him for being noisy…. Of course, as
soon as that door began to open, I would duck out of sight, so that annoying dog appeared to be barking at nothing…. Alas, my tree had a half-grown bunch of bananas, so combine being off balance by that with Irma’s rain and winds, I finally got outside to see this:
It will be months before any of the others are tall enough for me to resume my game.
