This is a picture of a palm tree in my parents front yard.  I took this picture today just for my entry.  My dad transplanted this tree when it was probably a year or two old to it's current location about 35 years ago.   It was maybe 3 ft tall back then.  My sisters and dad would jump over it, I was too chicken to try.  As you can see, no one is jumping over it anymore!
