  1. We had some very old weeping willows that were damaged by the remnants of a hurricane a few years back, and unfortunately they had to be cut down. This one looks like it was in the picture of health when this picture was taken.

    • The wood is soft so they tend to live shorter lives. That tree has probably been there since I lived there while in high school.

    • Thank you, Shelley! Yes, it’s an old willow tree, and the fish are delicious! Bass, Blue Gill, Perch. We caught them on a family holiday in the early 70s, my grandpa would clean them up for cooking! So many wonderful memories here. ❤️

      • You’re welcome! I thought so about the tree. Yummmmmmm those are my favorite fish, I grew up catching, watching my dad clean them, and then enjoying a fresh fish fry. Like, you, so many happy memories! 🥰

    • Wow, thank you. Cindy! ❤️☺️ I can check the original file to see if it is large enough to be printed properly at a local print shop. ☺️

    • Thank you, Anne Marie, it is a very old Weeping Willow. There are others along the shore, my sister had to have one taken down last year as it was getting too old. I lived here when I was in high school. In fact, our family moved to this lake in 1968 and owned two homes. This was the second which my sister and her now-deceased husband purchased from my parents. Our family has lived in this lake for 54 years!
