Tree of Thorns

Thornytree

I have no idea what this tree is. It's on the property of a commercial bakery in Indianapolis. I ran across it when I went over there to sit at a picnic table to talk on the phone. The thorns are very very sharp.

I picked off an interesting bit of the thorns that was just resting there...it had broken off, but not fallen to the ground. I have it hanging from my rearview mirror right now, but need to get it off there. I'll have it sitting on my desk.

When we got home Sunday night, we unloaded the car and got everything put away in just a few minutes. I sat down to go through the mail and when I glanced out into the family room, Mensa Boy and Taylor were watching "Who Wants to Be a Superhero."
When the show was over, they both sighed in satisfaction.

"It's good to be watching quality TV," Mensa Boy said.

That would be a honey locust Karen. You should have had a chain saw and brought me back a big chunk of it. It would make a beautiful bowl!

My dad and I watch Who Wants to Be a Superhero. Sometimes it's just painful to watch (and yet we still do). Of course, Stan Lee is the Man. So that helps.
