If trees could scream,

would we be so cavalier 
about cutting them down?

We might,

if they screamed all the time, 

for no good reason.

I just spit out my water! I love deep thoughts!

Hahaha, glad you liked it Jennifer. I was reading through a bunch when I linked Deep Thoughts to an earlier post and they just CRACK ME UP. More will be forthcoming. ;)

If trees screamed when they were cut down, all the sociopaths would be lumberjacks.

Thanks for dropping in at my blog and commenting. It was very welcome. Roland

...hopped over from Roland's blog, and am now proud to say that I recently replaced the woodburner in the basement with an electric furnace:)

Incidentally, my upcoming release also takes place in the 80's. Good times...

Roland -- yup, I think you're right about the sociopaths. It was my pleasure to drop by your blog...a visit long overdure.

Elliot -- No way! We've got to start an 80s fic sub genre. Thanks for coming over, and bully for you on the electric furnace. Hope that means the trees around you have cut back on the screaming. ;)
