Date: January 12, 1964. Location: UP A TREE

Do you know where you were on January 12, 1964? This boy was in this tree. No other information is given. Just the date written in ink on the back. Wouldn't you like to know the story to this one? My mind is all over the place with possibilities, but I'll let you make up your own.

The more I look at it the more the tree starts looking like some sort of space alien on early Star Trek. The alien's arms are about to enfold the boy. Or...maybe he's just stuck in the tree waiting for the fire department to get him down.

This is from the Three Buck Big Box of Photos.

    He is looking at something on the ground; perhaps it is a fierce animal. He has just broken into the garden and is being savagely barked at by the family poodle.

  2. I can tell that the tree was grafted from one thing to another - the trunk size difference. Other than that, maybe he's been thrown there by a whirlwind? ;-)


    PS thank you for the linky love!

  3. Yes, perhaps he's not in Kansas anymore.
